    the added costs that our governments tack onto the price of a home Fees red tape regulatory complexity and unacceptable delays add unnecessary premiums to already expensive housing in Metro Vancouver Governments often claim to be deeply concerned about affordability but study after study confirms they re part of the problem And what s even more troubling is lack of transparency and restrictions on consumer choice Governments are quick to trumpet the benefits of new regulations even if they don t always hold up to scrutiny but rarely have much to say about costs Read more Post navigation The BC Construction Monitor Federal Election Issue BC Government consults construction industry about access to labour Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment Menu ICBA Independent News Media Publications Links Search for Recent Posts 3 Myths About Pipeline Projects In B C The Trans Mountain Expansion Project is a winning proposition for Canada ICBA tells National Energy Board 5 Reasons the Kinder Morgan expansion project is good for BC and BC families B C pipeline decision sends chill through industry Getting to yes It s where British Columbians want to be LATEST NEWS NEWS Group of B C businesses contractors create pro pipeline petition and social media campaign NEWS Trans Mountain Expansion Project is a winning proposition for Canada GROWING THE ECONOMY Responsible development creates thriving communities and a stronger BC Join us in bringing projects to Yes UPCOMING TRAINING COURSES Burnaby Bluebeam Revu 2015 Basics Feb 10 2016 View all upcoming courses WATCH ICBA s latest videos Build your business with the ICBA ADVANTAGE View the history of ICBA in our new ICBA40 anniversary videos The Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of British Columbia 1975 2016 JOIN US JOIN OUR MAILING LIST TO RECEIVE

    also expressed for infrastructure and residential construction The poll also demonstrated a clear understanding among British Columbians of the scope of job creation that resource development brings not only for resource workers themselves but for people in other sectors such as construction and in diverse white collar fields such as accounting finance and sales With our province s reputation for polarized politics it was somewhat surprising to find that support for responsible resource and infrastructure development doesn t breakdown on left right lines Among NDP voters our poll found 60 per cent support Site C 54 per cent support mining expansion 62 per cent support port expansion and 78 per cent support infrastructure and residential construction So with positions like it s taken on Site C the NDP is clearly out of touch even with its own supporters who like all British Columbians want to see responsible resource development and the jobs it creates Strong and consistent support for resource development is also not a new phenomenon A poll commissioned by Resource Works in 2014 found that 72 per cent of British Columbians agree that natural resource development is good for the province And 71 per cent agreed that the green economy can be grown within B C s natural resource sector Similarly a poll conducted as part of the B C Agenda for Shared Prosperity initiative in 2013 found that two thirds of British Columbians agree economic success will depend on northern resources with majorities agreeing on other specifics such as the need for more transportation infrastructure When sensible and responsible proposals for new resource and infrastructure development are brought forward their proponents need to know they will have the support of the majority of British Columbians And regulators and the politicians who create the regulations should be aware of that too In fact with so many advantages abundance of resources skilled workforce leading edge environmental management expertise and a strategic position on global trade routes there should be no better place to undertake major projects than in B C If we can t get them right here where can that happen Unfortunately the majority view on these issues is too often a silent one especially in contrast to the no to everything movement that consistently manages to project its voice louder than its support among British Columbians justifies We can t afford to stay silent Our reputation as a difficult place to do business is dangerously and maybe even increasingly entrenched And it s exactly that kind of reputation that can drive away investment jobs and prosperity The majority in B C needs to make its voice better heard Philip Hochstein is president of the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of B C whose 1 200 members build in every construction sector and are involved in virtually all major capital projects in British Columbia Post navigation NEWS RELEASE CMD Group and ICBA join forces in British Columbia Feedback on BC One Call and other business challenges needed Leave
