B.C. is presently the only province in Canada that produced a balanced budget for the fiscal year 2015/2016. B.C. is also the only province in Canada with a AAA credit rating.
Alberta also had a AAA credit rating, but was downgraded by Standard and Poor’s to a AA+ credit rating, on Dec. 18. The credit rating was reduced because of the spending polices of the newly elected NDP Alberta provincial government. The residents of B.C. should be proud to live in the province of B.C. regardless of their political preferences.
