Statement from BC NDP Leader John Horgan on election results

BC NDP Leader John Horgan has issued the following statement on the election results:
“British Columbians have voted overwhelmingly to replace Christy Clark’s Liberals with a new government that works better for families. They voted for better schools, shorter wait times for health services, to defend our coast and to fix our broken political system. The newly elected BC NDP team will be working hard every day to ensure British Columbians get a new government that works for them instead of just the wealthy and well-connected.”

BC NDP launches campaign to reform BC’s broken political system

VANCOUVER— The BC NDP launched a petition campaign Wednesday asking British Columbians to show their support for a proportional voting system and getting big money out of politics.

“On May 9, 60 per cent of British Columbians voted for change,” said MLA-elect Lisa Beare. “People voted overwhelmingly to get big money out of politics, to move toward a proportional voting system and to stop funding partisan government ads with taxpayer money.”

Beare notes that the election results present an unprecedented opportunity to work across party lines to make real changes that put people back at the center of politics in BC.

“Now is our chance to fix this broken system and the BC NDP will be working hard to get it done,” said Beare. “We’re asking British Columbians to send a clear message that it’s time to work together and make real changes to make our political system work better for people.”

The petition can be found at: https://www.bcndp.ca/vote-bc

Airport Privatization

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

As you may have heard the Federal Liberal Government is considering selling off Canadian airports and privatizing them.

The I.A.M. has started an online petition against this and will be seeking to Lobby M.P’s across the country. 

We will be putting together teams to lobby MP’s within the greater Vancouver area.

Currently we are seeking the assistance of members who live within the current Federal ridings;

  • Richmond Center
  • Delta
  • Vancouver South
  • Vancouver Granville

As these are the MPs we will be targeting. Any interested members within these ridings please email eboard@iamaw16.ca as soon as possible.

Political Action Committee

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

There is an upcoming Provincial Election.

We feel that we need a government that will support workers and their families.

For too long we have been over charged; for childcare, MSP, and tolls.

It is time we have a government that will work for you, and your family

On Election Day please support the NDP, a party that will work for us not corporate agendas.

Advance polls will be available on the following

April 29-30, and May 3-6 beat the crowds and vote early!

Thanks for your time,

 

In solidarity,

Your Local Lodge Political Action Committee.
