The challenges of climate change facing British Columbia were the main focus of the budget Finance Minister Selina Robinson tabled today. The province has earmarked more than two-million-dollars for future climate change threats. Robinson says a three-year climate fund will support ongoing disaster cleanup and rebuilding in southern BC communities hit by last November's floods and mudslides. (She says the budget does not include a total estimate of the recovery costs, prompting the government to add a 1.1 billion-dollar contingency fund in its financial accounting for the 2022-23 fiscal year to cover future costs. --'},)
