Premier’s speech to the Coalition of Businesses says not to be complacent

B.C.’s economy may be booming now, but Premier Gordon Campbell is warning the business community not to be complacent.

In a year-in-review style speech to the Coalition of B.C. Businesses, the Premier says, while 2005 has been a great one for the province, challenges lie ahead.

Gordon Campbell says change is inevitable and no one should sit back and assume anything. “One of the things that’s really important for you to look at in 2006 is where do you want to be,” said Campbell. “What do you want the province to be like?”

The Premier also had a warning about the NDP opposition who he says are out in communities every day working hard against the interests of the business community.
