Black on provincial budget

School of Communication and Culture Assoc. Prof. David Black was interviewed by the Canadian Press in an article featured in the Vancouver Sun and 120 other publications regarding the upcoming provincial budget in British Columbia.

Here is an excerpt:

Black said the B.C. New Democrats led by Premier John Horgan are on a social building agenda that he labelled ‘radical pragmatism.’

Rather focusing attention on one issue — the environment, economy, education — the New Democrats are touching numerous social concerns that are building large-scale changes, he said.

‘It is a much more humble, circumspect, careful, but nonetheless ambitious program of change,’ said Black. ‘It’s not legislation by thunderbolt. It’s a kind of radical pragmatism.’

This story was first reported by the Canadian Press in the Vancouver Sun.
