B.C. is presently the only province in Canada that produced a balanced budget for the fiscal year 2015-16. B.C. is also the only province in Canada with an AAA credit rating.
Alberta also had an AAA rating, but was downgraded by Standards and Poor’s to an AA+ credit rating on Dec 18, 2015. The credit rating was reduced because of the spending polices of the newly elected NDP provincial government in Alberta.
The residents of B.C. should be proud to live in the province of B.C., regardless of their political preferences.
