贺谨:是要帮助富人更富或是帮助民众度过疫情?

【兰里讯】就在韦勤信遭披露要为卑诗最富有的百分之一减税,贺谨(John Horgan)在兰里(Langley)与民众讨论卑诗新民主党的纪录,计划投资医疗及卑诗省民面临的重要抉择。

“利害关系从未比以往更显得如此重要。这是攸关我们想要什么样的政府,领导我们面对第二波新冠肺炎及迎接更光明的未来。”贺谨表示。“卑诗省民需要问自己:我们真的想让富人更富,还是我们要投资帮助民众在疫情期间安全安心,我们的选票将决定一切。”

数周前韦勤信出席一项播客节目,他承认有意为最高收入人士减税两亿一千六百万元,送给收入最高的百分之一卑诗省民。贺谨表示,这符合卑诗自由党政纲的优先选项,为百万富豪提供免税游艇,但在投资医疗的经费却比卑诗新民主党少了一半。

“没有比此时投资医疗解决长者长期安养问题更重要的时刻,这正是我们计画所做的事情。”贺谨指出。“与其帮助那些最不需要的人,我们的计画持续帮助最需要的人—让我们在疫情期间及未来能健康、安全、安心。”

贺谨在一项圆桌讨论会做出上述评论,会中探讨民众的医疗及卑诗新冠疫情的回应。贺谨强调卑诗新民主党的计画,为家庭提供一千元经济复苏补助,改善医疗聘雇七千名长期照顾的前线工作人员,兴建基础建设创造一万八千个就业机会—例如素里兰里高架列车。

“在卑诗省我们做出正确事情彼此扶持照顾,尽管我们必须分离各地。”贺谨表示。“我希望卑诗省民投票给当地的卑诗新民主党候选人,我们一起让卑诗更进步—不是为了那些上位者而是为了全体民众。”

British Columbians have an important choice to make: Horgan
Horgan says voters have clear choice between helping the rich get richer or helping people get through the pandemic

LANGLEY — A day after it was revealed that Andrew Wilkinson wants to give a tax break to the top one percent of British Columbians, John Horgan was in Langley to talk with people about the BC NDP’s record on planned health care investments and the important choice British Columbians are facing.

“The stakes could not be higher. This is about what kind of government we want to lead us as we face a second wave of COVID-19 and prepare for a brighter future,” said Horgan. “British Columbians need to ask themselves: do we help the rich get richer or do we invest to help keep people safe and secure through the pandemic? Our votes decide.”

During an appearance on a podcast a few weeks ago, Andrew Wilkinson admitted that he wants to cut $216 million in taxes for the top income tax bracket. Horgan said that fits with the priorities in the BC Liberal platform, which offers millionaires tax-free yachts but invests less than half what the BC NDP plan does in health care.

“There has never been a more important time to invest in health care and fix long-term care for seniors. That’s what our plan does,” said Horgan. “Instead of helping those that need it the least, our plan continues helping people who need it most — keeping us healthy, safe, and secure through the pandemic and beyond.”

Horgan made the comments after a roundtable discussion with people on health care and BC’s COVID-19 response. Horgan highlighted the BC NDP plan to help families with a $1,000 recovery benefit, improve health care by hiring 7,000 frontline workers for long-term care, and create 18,000 jobs building infrastructure—like the Surrey Langley Skytrain.

“Here in BC, we’ve been doing the right thing by looking after each other, even when we had to be apart,” said Horgan. “I’m asking British Columbians to vote for their local BC NDP candidate so we can keep BC moving forward—not for those at the top, but for everyone.”
