And, once again, it's not flattering to the sketchy premier or her corrupt government.
The last time Crusty was featured in The Grey Lady, the venerable paper labeled her government, "The Wild West of Canadian Political Cash."
In today's New York Times Clark is roasted for her government's secretive tax break initiative to attract new businesses to LotusLand.
Here's the long and the short of it. The long is the 140-million dollars doled out by the government. The short of it is the result.
At one point, the tax breaks were projected to create more than 13,000 jobs in British Columbia. According to ministry figures, though, fewer than 300 have been created as a result of the program, and possibly as few as 122.
At the high estimate that's about half a million per job. At the low estimate it's well more than a million tax dollars per job created. Naturally, being a Clark Liberal government initiative it's buried in secrecy.
The incentives operate under a cloak of secrecy that is unusual for similar efforts in Canada and the United States, critics say. The province will not name the companies that get the breaks. The only information available about them is on the website of a nonprofit that promotes the program.
Wouldn't it be nice to know the names of those well-larded corporations and see how much each chipped in to Christy's campaign fund?
