Public Record - 2009 British Columbia Budget

Finance Minister Colin Hansen delivers the Liberal government's 2009 budget entitled "Building Stability, Confidence For The Future," Victoria, B.C., February 17, 2009.

Mr. Hansen forecasts a return to good times in three years, propelled primarily by a $10-billion economic impact of the 2010 Winter Olympics. However, British Columbians can expect two years of rough economic times that include a $495-million deficit for the fiscal year 2009, and $245 million for 2010.
