The NDP forced us too ...

It really did happen like this...

Campbell denies expansion of gaming while campaigning in Ft. St. John...

"Generally speaking across the province, we have not seen ... an expansion beyond the commitments that were made, the legal commitments and obligations that were established by the NDP government,'' (Campbell)he said.

Then he says...

"Having said that, I understand why people would be concerned..."

And the Premier concludes...

"I think there was a legal commitment from the government to various agencies for 6,500 slot machines. They weren't all there but that was a commitment. We didn't want to break those agreements.''

Aparently the Liberal promise to stop Gaming expansion could be broken but a vague NDP commitment for 6500 slot machines had to be abided by. Too bad HEU members didnot have slot machines in their hospitals.
