British Columbia This Week

What to Expect

The Cullen Commission report on money laundering has been released, prompting Liberal leader Kevin Falcon to apologize for the previous Liberal government’s failure to address the issue. While the NDP government will continue to use the money laundering issue to frame its Liberal opponent, health care issues, especially staff shortages causing emergency room closures, will continue to dominate the news this week.
