It was the commodity prices

BC Liberals can take credit for a few things, like broken promises, selling BC Rail, raising tuitions, closed hospitals, overcrowded emergency rooms, bigger class sizes, more homeless, and a rise in German ship building but they can not take credit for the economy.

This says it as well as anyone can...

Mr. Summerville, who joined the party for the first time last fall, said centre-left administrations such as that of Bill Clinton in the United States, Britain's Tony Blair and Manitoba's Gary Doer succeed because they don't just look at tax cuts. "Believe me, I took a lot of shots at the NDP during its second administration," he said. "I don't want to get into a pissing contest with other economists, but when you look at the basic structure of the B.C. economy, much of it has been driven by a massive boom in commodity prices." ~ Paul Summerville, a former chief economist for TD Securities, is a first-time NDP strategist, April 26, 2005 Globe and Mail
Take that Michael Campbell!
