VICTORIA, B.C. – Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, says that the government’s newly convened Basic Income Expert Panel is a significant step forward for the province’s 21st century economic strategy. The committee was announced at a press conference today in Vancouver and is related to the B.C. Greens’ Confidence and Supply Agreement with the B.C. NDP.
“At this moment, on the verge of fundamental economic change and with the old model of work already faltering for so many, we have an opportunity to create policy that sets the stage for a better future for British Columbians,” said Weaver.
