Finance Minister and Deputy Premier Kevin Falcon says he's amazed at comments by federal NDP leader Thomas Mulcair, who has called the premiers of BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan "messengers" for Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
The premiers have criticized Mulcair for suggesting the booming energy and resource sectors in western Canada are dragging down manufacturing in eastern Canada....Falcon says Mulcair is ignorant.
"The natural resource sector is going to be a huge contributor to BC's economy, ING exports alone have the potential to generate tens of billions of dollars for the benefit of taxpayers in British Columbia and to have a federal leader, who wants to be prime minister, making those kind of comments is just shocking."
Falcon is calling on BC NDP leader Adrian Dix to "disavow" the comments of his federal counterpart.
