Government Budget Leaves Kootenays Out Says Mungall

Posted in: ,

“Lacking vision and in no way responsive to the challenges being faced by Kootenay residents,” was how Nelson-Creston MLA Michelle Mungall described the Liberal Government’s 2014 Budget.

After a 200 day absence the Government returned to the Legislature and, on February 18th, they delivered the BC Budget, setting their priorities for British Columbia.  “It is very disappointing to see a budget that causes families to pay more while they get less” says Mungall. “For example, Kootenay residents will be paying more in MSP premiums, but will see no increase in services.”

Mungall spoke to the Budget during February 20′s debate in the Legislature.
