Christy Clark defends TD Bank's eligibility for tax rebate

Christy Clark defends TD Bank's eligibility for tax rebate

Voters go to the polls in British Columbia on Tuesday.

As Mary Griffin reports, some say the timing of the letter is everything.

Loaded with coal, it's likely heading to Asian steel mills.

View into the Eagle Butte coal mine in Gillette, in Wyoming's Powder River Basin.

On April 26, Premier Christy Clark sent a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking the federal government to ban the shipment of thermal coal, including USA shipments through B.C.in response to the US government and their announcement that they would be adding duties to Canadian Softwood Lumber and now it appears Trudeau is examining her request.

IPS officer TP Senkumar reinstated
The Opposition leader also urged the Chief Minister to pay the penalty from his pocket, not from the State exchequer. Despite the apex court order, the state government has not reinstated TP Senkumar as DGP.

"The evidence tells us it's helping create jobs in British Columbia", she said.

Horgan said if he is elected premier May 9, he will go to Washington D.C. within 30 days to make B.C.'s lumber case to US officials.

"In a letter, Trudeau writes: "...the Government is considering this request carefully, and seriously..." "There's a whole host of issue, but a week before election day, I believe, is not the time to rattle sabres".

The United States announced a tariff of up to 24 per cent on Canadian softwood last week.

If Andrew Weaver held the balance of power in a minority situation, he may just throw his support behind a Liberal minority as opposed to an NDP minority, because he seems to have a real problem with John Horgan, and he has supported Christy Clark's Liberals in the past, even on initiatives not supported by a large percentage of people who are forever affected by those decisions, like the generations of farmers, and their families, affected by Site C Dam construction. But, Hogan thinks Clark's attack on US thermal coal exports may be going too far, saying "That's saber rattling".

Donald Trump lashes out at 'fake media' over coverage of healthcare act
Trump touted the bill as a "great plan" even though they got "no support from the other party". "Obamacare has failed. The President congratulated and thanked House Speaker Paul Ryan and praised House Republicans for coming together.

Over the past 65 years, BC has a political history of swinging like a pendulum from Liberal/Social Credit "right" to the NDP "left", back and forth, again and again.

Although she has stuck to a consistent message about jobs and the economy throughout the campaign, in the final days of the four-week effort, she has emphasized the threats posed to the province's economic success.

"There's a fair question to be asked whether it's appropriate for a prime minister to be speaking on such a high profile issue that one of the candidates, admittedly the incumbent premier, has weighed in on publicly", says Prince.

And the impact may be seen over the next few days.

Jets release injured safety Marcus Gilchrist
