B.C. Budget and reactions

The Provincial government revealed its budget for the year today. We're still in a deficit but the government plans to be back in black by 2013 or 2014.

*John Cummins, the leader of the BC Conservative Party and

*Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, Representative for Children and Youth, Province of British Columbia.
