Political Capital - BC budget, minister pay, overdose crisis, new ministers

More $ in ministerial cheques, and just straight up more ministers.

The BC budget has landed, what's good, bad and meh in the new fiscal plan for the province? Cabinet ministers are getting a 10 per cent salary boost after government drops a holdback that would have docked their pay during deficit budgets, what's behind this change? And the panel talks about a new land stewardship ministry, oil and gas revenue declines, the overdose crisis and more.

Host Rob Shaw is joined by Jillian Oliver, Maclean Kay and Katy Merrifield.
