Mike Smyth: Horgan’s 100-day plan is ambitious, aggressive

The Province July 22, 2017

Columnist Mike Smyth writes about the new NDP government's plan for the first 100 days in office.

Premier John Horgan heads to Ottawa and Washington, D.C., this week to make B.C.’s case on the softwood lumber dispute with the Americans while pressing our federal government for money and assistance at home.

It’s part of an aggressive agenda for the new NDP government that will unfold in the coming days and weeks in a busy 100-day plan for the province.

NOTE: judging how hard the NDP fights for this is a judgement that individuals have to make. We have marked this in-progress as a result of the Premier scheduling action in his first 100 days. It will remain in-progress as long as their is evidence that advocacy is ongoing. Please let us know what your thoughts are in the comment section.
