BC Factbase is a website that examines policy, society and economics in BC through dynamic charts. Launched by MPP 2013 grad Peter Severinson, the goal is to provide British Columbians with a reliable factual background on some of the province's most important public issues.
For instance, just how high is BC’s debt? How much tax do we pay? Where do our tax dollars go? How do we compare with other jurisdictions?
The site is designed to be highly interactive, encouraging readers to comment, make critiques and suggest other data sources. Go to bcfactbase.wordpress.com
