In March, the government changed the tax to exempt several thousand global residents on provincial work permits and agreed to provide refunds to some people who had already paid the tax.

Initial estimates by CKNW indicate the plan could cost $54.5-million a year to cover the City of Vancouver alone.

- Horgan says he's already having meetings about how to distribute legal marijuana, including talks with liquor outlets, craft brewers, pharmacies and dispensaries. "This approach has the option of being nice to immigrants but also making sure we can draw people to Vancouver to live and work here, because it's not too expensive". "We're going to make different choices - choices that help families and make their lives better".

"If you're buying property, and you're benefiting from all the public services, and your property is going up in value, because of the good schools and hospitals and services here - that's fundamentally unfair", Mr. Eby said.

"This is a powerful island team to take the government of British Columbia and give it back to the people of the provinces, it's exciting for me and it's exciting for us", Horgan told supporters.

Roy is also behind a new strategy outlined by the BC Rental Housing Coalition, which calls for a significant increase in rental and affordable housing development, adding he'd like to see the New Democrats and other parties support it.

The New Democrat's announcement came just after the Liberals said they would cap bridge tolls to $500 per year for drivers in a bid to attract drivers in the Surrey and Delta ridings.

In a statement, Liberal candidate Mike de Jong says there's no way for the NDP to balance the budget, which he describes as reckless.

The NDP expects to finance its campaign commitments by reversing a Liberal tax cut to people who earn more than $150,000 a year, hiking the corporate tax rate and putting a price on housing speculation.

He says it would cost $4-billion per year if brought in, and again raising the spectre of B.C. losing its AAA credit rating.
