B.C. posts $1.68B bud­get sur­plus

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - BUSINESS -

VIC­TO­RIA — Bri­tish Columbia's fi­nance min­is­ter says a higher-than-ex­pected bud­get sur­plus leaves room for mod­est fam­ily ini­tia­tives but he's wary of es­ca­lat­ing for­est-fire costs and signs of eco­nomic down­turns in Canada and in­ter­na­tion­ally. The province's bud­get sur­plus hit $1.68 bil­lion, sig­nif­i­cantly higher than the orig­i­nal forecast of $184 mil­lion, Mike de Jong said Wed­nes­day.
