  • BC Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson made a stop in Surrey today as part of his campaign trail to get his last home stretch pitch out to voters

BC Liberal leader Andrew Wilkinson invited the South Asian media for a roundtable and addressed some of the most pressing questions on the minds of Surrey residents.

Dr. Gulzar Cheema Liberal candidate for the riding of Surrey Panorama accompanied him and Andrew Wilkinson opened up with remarks that "We have seen a very divisive and antagonistic campaign from the NDP and they are happy to attack me personally which accomplishes nothing. We are in this pandemic and it is going to do a lot of damage to our economy over the winter".

He stressed the hit the province's economy has taken due to the pandemic and laid out the Liberals party's platform. "There are already the consequences you are seeing of restaurants closing up, retails shops closing, and the best estimate is that one out 4 businesses is going to close in the next 12 months. This is going to be very damaging to Surrey and British Columbia. We can abolish the Provincial Sales Tax for year and move to 3 percent after that. Abolish the Business Income Tax and support our tourism and hospitality and we have talked about taking care of seniors with a $7000 tax credit". added Wilkinson

He then took questions from reporters regarding a new hospital for Surrey, ICBC monopoly, and the Massey Tunnel and highlighted the accomplishments for Surrey that were achieved for it to thrive as a city under the governance of the Liberal party.

The 42nd provincial general election takes place October 24th.
