Building a #BetterBC
Join us for a Virtual Day of Action

Talking to people in the community is one of the most important parts of our work engaging with voters across the province. Want to help? Sign up to join our Virtual Day of Action on July 25.

Volunteers from across the province will hit the phones to talk with friends, family, and neighbours – while doing their part to keep BC’s curve flat.

Can’t make it on July 25? Don’t worry! There are plenty of other opportunities to get involved. Sign up now and we’ll connect you with an upcoming campaign.

Expanding healthcare plans

The COVID-19 crisis has made clear the importance of building healthcare capacity for the long term. Your BC NDP government is committed to ensuring that BC’s growing communities have the capacity they need.

That’s why, in March 2018, we approved plans for a new acute-care tower in Richmond. Last week, Premier John Horgan and Health Minister Adrian Dix announced that these plans have been significantly expanded.

Minister Dix: “The renewed and expanded concept plan reflects our government’s ongoing commitment to the people who live and work here, ensuring that timely, quality public healthcare will be there for them, now and into the future.”

More online fun

To stay in touch with supporters like you while maintaining physical distancing, we’re continuing our popular series of virtual fundraising events.

Coming up, we’ve got a trivia night with Surrey-Whalley MLA Bruce Ralston, an episode of NDP Cribs with Minister Anne Kang, and a birthday party for North Vancouver-Lonsdale’s Bowinn Ma.

And on July 25, we’ll be holding our New Democrats Got Talent showcase, with performers from across the province and an all-star panel of judges.

A fairer BC

Everyone deserves to be treated fairly. But over the years, many Black, Indigenous, and other people of colour in BC haven’t received the fair treatment they deserve.

One way we’re addressing this is by working to ensure the police are held to the highest possible standards of accountability and unbiased conduct.

BC’s Police Act is 45 years old and – frankly – out of date. So, our BC NDP government is reforming it to address the realities of systemic racism and urgent priorities for mental health and harm reduction. If you support this move, please share the news on Facebook.
