Clark said: “We are fighting for the economic future of British Columbia and trying to make sure families can look forward to a stable future. I want to keep B.C. a safe harbor in the midst of economic turmoil.”
She also said that the upcoming budget will restrict expenses in turn to fulfill its objective of shrinking deficit. Clark said balancing the budget is a difficult task which requires declining a number of programs.
Moreover, the premier said her government will allocate $165 million to employ new teaching assistants for the educational institutes.
