However, the Liberal party said a study by the government found the program created 1,140 jobs between 2004 and 2007.
Horgan also spent some time attempting to appeal to "disaffected Liberal voters", and signs of red and green appeared in the rally promoting a similar message.
Speaking at a shut-down sawmill in Merritt on Tuesday, Horgan said action against US coal shipments brought up by train to B.C.'s coal port in Delta "is in the range of options" B.C. should consider.

The leader of British Columbia's New Democrats is campaigning in the Liberal heartland in the Okanagan, making five stops Saturday in three ridings which are all held by Liberals. "We can't risk another four years of Christy Clark".
"Wherever I bring up the issues that people are talking about, that people want to focus on, the B.C.

Horgan said the NDP would consider adjustments to rates down the road, but is more concerned about getting a fair deal in the softwood lumber dispute.
But some experts say it's the Green party the other candidates should be watching out for. And while both mainstream parties pay lip service to aboriginal issues, neither the Liberals nor the NDP have taken meaningful steps to right historical wrongs or to ensure equal opportunity for a prosperous future for the peoples whose historical land we occupy. "I think the B.C. Greens offer them vision, but we are not going to tell them".
