From the Publisher

With an election looming, but as yet unnanounced, Mark Milke's book offers keen insight into modern BC politics. Fast ferries, the fudge-it budget, Glen Clark, higher taxes, declining incomes, the Nisga'a treaty, big government and the Nanaimo bingo scandal - the NDP's disasterous decade in power -are all examined here. Milke details the scandals, the ideological attacks, and the abuse of power that became all too familiar to British Columbians since 1991. He also outlines his vision for the future and argues that reforms to BC's government must take place regardless of who is in power. The choice for British Columbians is between Sweden and Switzerland and Milke argues BC's greatest days lay ahead - if we choose wisely.
