Darryl Schmidt Asks:
What are your plans to stimulate high paying jobs specifically in the Kamloops area?
The building of a cancer diagnosis and treatment centre--along with the NDP's commitment to hire 7,000 new health care employees province-wide--will mean that high paying jobs will be available in our community and that will help encourage people to settle in Kamloops. The NDP's support of Community Benefit Agreements, with their preference for local workers and local procurement, will also mean high paying, family supporting, union protecting jobs. Investments by the Horgan government in post-secondary education means that TRU will continue to add faculty and staff jobs.
