COLLINS – If Eby comes through on his 100-day plan, it will be a miracle

OUR NEW PREMIER-TO-BE is going to give us a miracle.

David Eby has unveiled a 100-day plan, apparently to get B.C. on the road to prosperity. Eby promises to “lay the groundwork” for a number of priorities relating to affordable housing, safety and health care, among others.

Laying the groundwork, in political jargon, often means “we’re going to tell you about these things, but we’re not going to do anything with them until close to election time, and then we’ll do a bit more if you re-elect us.”

I don’t have any problems with Eby’s ideas. Housing has been a big priority, and he’s looking at partnerships to make this happen. He wants to help the medical crisis by fast-tracking certification of doctors who were trained in other countries so they can practice here. About time.


Doug Collins has had a wide background in the broadcast industry, having done virtually every type of news and sports broadcasting, including news anchor, sports play-by-play, and editorialist. His “One Man’s Opinion” aired on TV from 1973- 2013. He retired from his management roles in the station in October, 2018, but continues to write his column. In 2019, Doug was awarded the Freedom of the City.

  1. Once again garbage commentary from DC in my opinion. While absolutely not an NDP supporter I applaud Eby and Horgan tenure in government. Compared with what we had and the unpredictability of it all, they are trying to do the right thing. They are absolutely trying. Denying it, like DC does all of time, is extremely annoying.
