If BC Ferries is a Private Corporation…

it might be prudent to ask why the premier of the province is announcing a reduction in fares. (It’s possible that this Globe & Mail story is factually inaccurate.)

B.C. to accelerate income tax cuts

VANCOUVER — British Columbia will accelerate income tax cuts to cushion the blow from the economic slowdown, Premier Gordon Campbell announced minutes ago in a province-wide televised address.

Income tax cuts slated to take effect this coming January will come into effect immediately - and be retroactive to Jan. 1, 2008 - handing B.C. residents an unexpected windfall as the holiday retail season approaches.

The announcement was part of a 10-point plan announced by Mr. Campbell last night, which also include accelerated tax cuts for businesses and a temporary cut in ferry fares.
