A $500-million prosperity fund that was supposed to consist of revenue from liquefied natural gas earnings, which Horgan calls Premier Christy Clark's "fantasy fund", will be used to eliminate tolls on two of the Lower Mainland's busiest bridges over the next three years. "The people who are going to benefit from this are the people who are already better off than many and in my community where so many people do not have a taxable income, the credit is not really a benefit".
"Those things actually help people who are struggling and I think that is the important thing", he said. Horgan would also reduce small business income tax by one half of one per cent.

The NDP's first increase would raise $140 million in 2019-20, which Horgan's plan counts as revenue rather than offsetting against income taxes as the BC Liberals have pledged to do.
Horgan said the platform is based on financial figures in the government's 2017-18 budget.
"For the people who are drawn to the chant 'We're number eight, ' Mr. Horgan has presented a blueprint for getting there", he said.
