With one day of the election campaign down and 27 to go, Liberal leader Gordon Campbell is set to unveil his party’s platform.
Campbell lays out the details at an announcement in Vancouver this morning before jumping on a plane to take the Liberal campaign to central and northeastern B-C.
Several stops are slated for this afternoon in Prince George and Campbell ends the day with a rally in Dawson Creek. The rally will take place at 8pm at the Sudeten Hall.
Yesterday, about 150 supporters gathered to help open Campbell’s Vancouver-Point Grey constituency office.
N-D-P leader Carole James spends today campaigning in Metro Vancouver — with events planned in North Vancouver, east Vancouver and Surrey.
About 400 supporters attended a campaign kick-off rally last night to hear James accuse the Liberals of failing to help seniors, students and impoverished families.
She also repeated her call for an end to the carbon tax, saying the worst time to bring in a new tax is during a recession.
Environmental groups — traditional supporters of the N-D-P — are criticizing the party for failing to support the green initiative, but also say they will not endorse the Liberals.
