Liberal Leader Christy Clark started Saturday in Cache Creek in B.C.'s Interior to examine flood damage before resuming her campaign in Port Moody later in the day.

NDP Leader John Horgan steps off a plane after arriving in Nanaimo, B.C., on Friday May 5, 2017, for campaign stops on Vancouver Island.

"Some of the polls are suggesting we're looking at a statistical tie between the Liberals and NDP in terms of decided voters", said Prince.

Weaver says Horgan can't be trusted to bring in electoral reform any more than Liberal leader Christy Clark can.

Over a third of British Columbians believe that the BC New Democratic Party (NDP) would fare worse than the BC Liberals when it comes to job creation, according to a recent survey by Insights West.

Today Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, issued a statement regarding the ongoing negative ad campaigns that both the B.C. NDP and B.C. Liberals have launched in the final days of this election.

He has been practicing lightly over the last few days, but is not willing to risk further damage by playing through the injury. Jimmy Butler and Robin Lopez added 14 points apiece for the Bulls, who were without point guard Rajon Rondo (broken thumb).

Clark spent the first part of day defending a little-known tax rebate program meant to attract global business to British Columbia that allowed TD Bank to claim a $2.8-million refund. The Court of Appeal ruled last month that B.C. must reconsider the bank's request for a time extension to claim the refund. "The evidence tells us that it's been a good investment".

"We are going to stand strong to make sure we support jobs in British Columbia", says Clark.

"They say, "We don't want your lumber" and they're upset we don't want to ship their coal?"

- The NDP says people deserve answers about the worldwide business activity program because it allows unnamed corporations to receive an unknown amount of taxpayer money with no discernible benefits for B.C. The program gives away millions in taxpayer dollars to unnamed corporations with no discernible benefits for British Columbians. A careful look at their policies will show that they also support progressive social initiatives and true free enterprise which encourages small and medium business, where most new jobs are created, rather than big business in the form of global corporations. "We've asked the auditor general to get to the bottom of this".

"We can't risk that for our school system, we can't risk that for our health-care system, we can't risk that for seniors", Horgan said of electing Clark to an electric crowd at the Craft Corner Kitchen on Main Street in Penticton.
