Question: If you were premier for a day, what two pieces of legislation would you enact?
I would enact legislation that bans corporate, union, and non–B.C. origin donations, and cap the maximum allowable personal donation. Our representatives should be representing the interests of British Columbians, not the interests of large donors. I would also enact legislation to create $10/day childcare. Available and affordable childcare is shown to have a positive effect on GDP, as well as generating positive revenue to the province. Further it relieves the crushing burden of childcare costs for young families, and also grandparents who are trying to help in any way they can.
Question: If you had a theme song, what would it be?
We’re Not Gonna Take It by Twisted Sister.
