LEADING BC’S COMEBACK 

Now is the time to be bold and brave.

Andrew Wilkinson’s Comeback Plan for BC includes calling on the government to provide much needed tax relief and financial supports for the safe reopening of small businesses.

BC IS BACK PLAN

BC is Back Plan

Andrew Wilkinson’s BC IS BACK PLAN provides British Columbians with much-needed tax relief and financial supports as we begin to rebuild BC’s economy. This includes:

  • 60-90 day holiday on PST, Hotel Tax, and Employer Health Tax
  • Short-term commercial rent relief with a no-eviction backstop
  • Increase our tourism marketing budget to attract visitors when safe
  • A rural BC-specific strategy to ensure prosperity in all regions
  • A moratorium on red tape that would add costs for businesses

SAFE REOPENING

Andrew Wilkinson is calling on the government to provide financial support for small businesses to get the PPE and other safety equipment they need to keep workers and customers safe, which includes:

  • Greater clarity on rules for reopening businesses
  • Single source for reopening information
  • Central hub for small business PPE resources
  • Refunds to help employers purchase PPE
  • Rebates or credits on WorkSafeBC premiums and payroll taxes applied to wages under CEWS

SUPPORTING RESTAURANTS

Supporting restaurants

Andrew Wilkinson is calling on the government to provide expedited licensing, grants, and tax deductions so that restaurants can reopen safely and serve British Columbians once again:

  • Liquor licenses for increased patio or outdoor space
  • Double the tax deduction for business related meals to 100%
  • Expedite permits of patio and outdoor spaces for food and liquor
  • Permanently allow delivery of liquor
  • Create a small business hardship grant
  • Allow restaurants and bars to purchase liquor at wholesale prices from any liquor store

ACTION AGAINST HATE CRIMES

Action against racism

Andrew Wilkinson is calling on the government to take immediate action against the rise in hate crimes and racist incidents in BC:

  • A hotline to report racist incidents
  • Funding for multiculturalism and anti-racism programs
  • More education tools for K-12 curriculum
  • Resources for police forces to combat hate crimes
  • Prioritize prosecutions of racist incidents
