 A Vision for Hope & Prosperity  for the next decade and beyond.
I am excited about our future.I was born here and I know what we can accomplish when we unitebehind a common purpose.In BC there is a special spirit.It’s the spirit that reaches beyonourselves.It’s the spirit of enterprise,community and imagination.Imagine looking at our province 100 years ago and then look at it today.Think of the public legacyof our past – the roads,bridges,dams and power lines that brought us together.Think of all we havebuilt:wonderful schools,universities and colleges to teach students of all ages;excellent hospitals to provide us all with care;and countless community services.This election provides a chance to embark on a New Era of enormous scope to build on that proud legacy.Together we can reverse the NDP’s decade of decline,incompetence,mismanagement and betrayal of trust.We can cut personal income taxes and unleash the power of a thriving freeenterprise economy.We can restore the sense of hope and prosperity that defined BC’s past,to build a future in everycommunity that is ripe with opportunity for our children and families.We can create a public education system that’s the envy of the world and develop a public healthcare system that meets the needs of all BC families,regardless of where they live.And we can bridgethe “digital divide,to ensure all British Columbians can participate in the new world of technologyand communicate through high-speed Internet access.We can revive the spirit of democracy and reform our public services so they meet your needs.Working together,we can become leaders again in Canada and put our province’s economy back on top.This booklet outlines some of the goals we have set for ourselves.I invite you to read it,offer suggestions for improvement,and hold us to account should you honour us with the right to form your next provincial government.We will act boldly and decisively to open up government,to rebuild our economy and to lead theway to a New Era full of promise and potential for you and your family.
