Please be advised that I have changed my travel plans because of the 2018 BC budget.
A group of us go on a motorcycle ride during the last week of May every year. We frequently go through Revelstoke, Nakusp, Nelson, and other interior British Columbia towns. But we will avoid BC this year. Instead, we’ll go through Missoula, Yellowstone Park, Sun Valley, and back to Calgary through Montana. Not one of our dollars will be spent in British Columbia.
I live in Calgary, and own a condo in Victoria. I bought it in 2009 when my daughter went to UVIC. I have kept it and rented it to others since she completed university. I am not a speculator. The condo has not been vacant for more than a couple months during the past nine years.
I can’t vote your premier out of office but I can vote with my feet and that is why we will not be coming to the B.C. Interior in May.
Horgan and Weaver seem to think I am some sort of cow that they can milk. They are wrong and the damage they are doing to British Columbia will last for years to come. I will not travel to or invest in a place where I am not welcome. They can kiss my ass good bye. And my money.
If you think this is an idle threat, please let me know. I can email you receipts from the hotels, restaurants and gas stations we patronize in Alberta, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, and Washington. Anywhere but B.C.
