Liberal party leader Christy Clark officially kicked off the BC Liberals’ campaign in front of a cheering crowd in Vancouver Tuesday night.

“There is only one party that is going to control spending, cut taxes and make sure British Columbians can go to jobs everyday, have the dignity of a paycheque and be able to look after the people that they love,” said Clark.

She reiterated the Liberals’ promise of cutting medical service premiums in half on Jan. 1 and eventually eliminating it all together. Clark attacked the NDP on what she called their lack of financial planning.

“While we are going to freeze your taxes for four years, the other guys are going to hike your taxes,” said Clark.
