Message from the Premier and Accountability Statement

Photograph -- Honourable Gordon Campbell.I am pleased to present the third Office of the Premier Annual Service Plan Report, for the 2004/05 fiscal year.

The past four years have been a time of remarkable progress for the Province. We have acted on or completed over 95 per cent of our New Era commitments to British Columbians. Tax relief measures introduced since 2001 return $1.6 billion a year to B.C. businesses and individuals. We have eliminated over 143,000 regulations, surpassing our goal of a one-third reduction. We are investing more in health care and education than ever before and, most importantly, those resources are being used more efficiently and effectively than ever before to meet the needs of British Columbians.

For the first time in nearly two decades, B.C.'s economy is leading Canada again. We have gone from last place to having the fastest growing economy of all provinces in 2004. We are creating jobs faster than any other province, and we're number one in new housing starts and business confidence.

There truly is a golden decade ahead for British Columbians, and we will keep working to ensure B.C. remains the best place to live, to work, to raise a family, and to build a future full of promise and potential.

The 2004/05 Office of the Premier Annual Service Plan Report compares the actual results to the expected results identified in the Office of the Premier's 2004/05 Service Plan. I am accountable for those results as reported.


Honourable Gordon Campbell
