Premier Christy Clark has again slammed the government’s own MSP system and is again promising that changes are coming.
“It’s an old system, it’s archaic, it’s not really logical.”
Faint praise indeed from the premier today, sounding a lot like she did back in February when she said premiums were not “entirely fair or even logical.”
Today the premier moved slightly closer towards contemplating possible changes, maybe. She commented on her government’s decision to not go ahead with a four per cent rise in the new year.
“So this is a first step, you’re going to see more changes to MSP as we continue in the coming months.”
“You’ll see more of what we’re trying to do to try to fix the, what I think are, real inequities in MSP for middle-class people.”
Earlier today Finance Minister Mike de Jong also revealed in the fiscal update that single parents with one or two children will have their MSP payments reduced to $75 a month.
