Reckless and Unecessary
Vancouver--Forty British Columbia economists and political economists from across the province today called on the BC government to rethink its planned spending cuts.
In advance of the February 19 provincial budget, the economists have issued an open letter to Premier Campbell and Finance Minister Collins. The Premier and Finance Minister claim a looming "structural deficit" gives them no choice but to significantly cut spending over the next three years. The signatories to today's letter dispute this view.
