FI­NANCE MIN­IS­TER OF B.C. PRE­VI­OUSLY #˜™, –—˜ ´ With her first bud­get in Fe­bru­ary, James pulled o the im­pres­sive feat of both de­liv­er­ing many NDP prom­ises while still bal­anc­ing the prov­ince’s books. Things get trick­ier next year, with tax rev­enues from B.C.’S boom­ing real es­tate and con­struc­tion in­dus­tries ex­pected to de­cline. While James re­mains one of Pre­mier Hor­gan’s top per­form­ers, she has faced the brunt of the back­lash to a pro­posed new tax on real es­tate spec­u­la­tion—one of many things that clouds the prov­ince’s eco­nomic fu­ture.
