But left unsaid is the pressing reality for leaders of the three major parties - Mr. Horgan, BC Liberal Leader Christy Clark and Andrew Weaver of the BC Green Party.

Horgan said his campaign made stops in Clark's riding earlier in the campaign.

In Vernon, Horgan told a roomful of supporters he wants to meet as many voters as possible in the campaign's final days.

To the Greens, in particular, he said the New Democrats were on the same page.

The B.C. Liberal leader, who is campaigning ahead of Tuesday's provincial election, says they also share a desire to reduce global reliance on dirty thermal coal as a source of electricity.

Clark spent the first part of day defending a little-known tax rebate program meant to attract global business to British Columbia that allowed TD Bank to claim a $2.8-million refund. The Court of Appeal ruled last month that B.C. must reconsider the bank's request for a time extension to claim the money.

Clark said on Friday the International Business Activity Act, first launched under a Social Credit government in 1988, has created more revenue than it has cost and it's aimed at luring companies to B.C.

"There may be jobs happening at the coast but the jobs are not happening in our community", said Dorval. "We need to grow those programs. that are aimed at attracting head offices from around the world to Vancouver". He said the problem has become worse despite the Liberal government's declaration of a public health crisis a year ago and that the Liberals haven't yet spent $10 million from the federal government to deal with the opioid issue.

- The NDP says people deserve answers about the worldwide business activity program because it allows unnamed corporations to receive an unknown amount of taxpayer money with no discernible benefits for B.C.

BC NDP candidate David Eby is calling for the Auditor-General to investigate a shady corporate giveaway scheme spotlighted by a New York Times investigation this week.

"The other tax measures we are looking at is rolling back the tax cuts that Christy Clark gave to the wealthiest people in B.C.", he said. "I would say, though, that Albertans are less familiar with our legislation than I am and we've been working on this for several months", she said.
