BC small business concerned about potential NDP win

September 18, 2012

A new survey has found small business owners in BC are worried about the NDP winning next May’s provincial election.

600 were questioned in the poll commissioned by the “Coalition of BC Businesses”, and coalition chair Mark von Schellwitz says they are nervous.

“77 per-cent are pessimistic about hiring under a BC NDP government.  68 per-cent believe the NDP would increase challenges and barriers to doing business, and 56 percent actually said that they’d consider postponing a major expansion or investment decision until after an election, until we see where the NDP is headed.”

He says his members want to know before the election what Dix plans to do.

He was speaking on the Bill Good Show on CKNW.
