BC Progress Board Tenth Annual Report


Progress Board reports show Liberal record barely average
Paul Willcocks, Feb 17, 2011

Two things should stand out. First, on the board’s economy, innovation and education indicators, the province improved in six measures, went backward on seven and stayed the same on three.

It is a middling performance. A little worse than other provinces, but basically simply average…. B.C. went backward on three other social and health measures. It has fallen from the sixth-worst province for poverty to last. Infant health, as measured by low birth weight, has gone from second to fifth place.
