1. What fiscal measures will you implement to ensure that mineral exploration and development remains globally competitive and able to attract investment?

1. What fiscal measures will you implement to ensure that mineral exploration and development remains globally competitive and able to attract investment?

2. BC industries compete with many global jurisdictions that do not have a carbon tax. What measures will you take to ensure trade exposed industries like mining remain competitive while paying for carbon emissions?

Carbon dioxide is not our enemy. We would eliminate the BC Carbon tax and fight federal carbon taxes. To me, CO2 is not a pollutant and it is still unproven that it is the dominant factor in climate change.

John Horgan and the BC New Democrat governments support mining. Under the BC NDP government in the 1990s we opened six new mines, including three of BC’s biggest metal mines still operating today: Huckleberry, Mount Polley and Kemess South.

The BC NDP implemented a host of policies which were supportive to mining, including appointing the province’s first Mining Advocate, providing grants and tax credits for mineral exploration, and creating the first comprehensive Environmental Assessment Process.
