Refresher: What was in the B.C. budget tabled in February? Add to ...

When Finance Minister Mike de Jong tables the B.C. budget bill Thursday in the Legislature, it will resemble closely the bill presented on Feb. 19, when a provincial election was imminent and the bill served as a sort of platform document for a governing B.C. Liberal Party seeking re-election.

Much has happened in B.C. politics since then but the budget legislation, it is expected, will be left largely intact. As The Canadian Press reports, De Jong says some of the numbers have been updated to reflect slightly lower than expected revenues, but he’s still calling for a modest surplus of around $200-million.

He says the month-long legislative session will focus on debating and passing the budget.

The following is a summary of our February budget coverage, a refresher for those wondering what to look for from Thursday’s budget bill.
