Since 2004 our BC Liberal government has refunded $830 million to gas resource companies under the Infrastructure Royalty Credits Program.
The program returns provincial gas royalty fees to assist companies with up to 50 per cent of their cost of construction for their pipelines and access roads.
The teachersâ€™ strike continues, as teachers attempt to restore class size and composition to 2002 levels.
Education Minister Peter Fassbender has firmly stated taxpayers cannot afford the $1 billion estimated to restore school funding to 2002 levels.
Instead of funding public education, Energy Minister Coleman and our BC Liberals have funded fracking.
Parents, grandparents, the majority of our citizens, and even children know the value returned by education.
Fassbenderâ€™s affordability claim is false. Itâ€™s a simply matter of choice: kids or corporations.
The BC Liberals have launched their court appeal hoping the judge will agree corporations come first.
