Who to believe?

Re. School to be expanded (Castanet, May 27)

Whose facts are the true?

(In the article,) B.C. NDP MLA Ravi Parmar says every 37 days, 10,000 people move to B.C., and many settle in the Central Okanagan.

StatsCan estimates the number (who have moved out of BC) to be 37,650 in 2023 alone.

“For the first time since 2012, B.C. lost more people than it gained, and almost all of those who moved in the final quarter of 2023 flowed to Alberta—a break from a trend where people in the prairie province sought out the West Coast as a place to live after retirement.”

Who can you believe these days?
