IT’S NOT MUCH of a stretch to realize that the B.C. Interior could well be on the outside looking in if the NDP and Greens newly-formed coalition eventually winds up with them trying to govern the province.
With John Horgan and Andrew Weaver owing most of their support to ridings in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, it stands to reason that they will feel a duty to provide some “goodies” as a thank you to the people who supported them. That’s the way the political system works, and I don’t expect things to change no matter what the Greens say about political change and a new way of doing things.
So if you are going to spend money, where are you going to spend it? In the Lower Mainland? Victoria? Of course- that’s where your base of support is.
