Give the BC Liberals a big thank you today (2017) for cutting our MSP premiums in 2018

A 2017 BC Liberal election plank promise from Christy Clark is that she will personally cut the MSP, in half.   Mind you the value of the 2018 dollar compared to 2001 .......

Graph wise it looks impressive.

The first hick, up, came from Finance Minister Gary Collins in 2002, with the blessing of his Premier ... Gordon Muir Campbell of which Deputy Premier Christy Clark was cheering the loudest at the Cabinet table.  Those minute details are now accessible via an FOI.

 Where is Gary Collins?   Who Cares!

Where is Kevin Falcon?   North Shore of Burrard Inlet, but then again .. Who Cares!

1987 to 2018

BC Liberals Bitter Pills: Misleading Graphs leads to Graft


In less than ONE year of our Personal Income Taxes being cut by 25% the BC Liberals' Finance Gary Collins felt that he was obligated to Raise MSP Premiums by 50%!  What a Bitter Pill that was.
1987 to 2013 (the day after the Election)

If you are thinking who is going to make up the 50% difference .... look no further than privateer Dr. Brian Day's court battle that the BC Government is fighting off with a wet noodle.

In 2017, the couple rate increased to $150.00 per month.

Effective Jan. 1, 2017
There are no premiums for children under the age of 19.
MSP premium rates will be determined by the number of adults on an MSP account (the MSP account holder and, if applicable, a spouse.)
