The result for a #BetterBC
This election, British Columbians were given the chance to choose who they want to lead them out of the COVID-19 pandemic – and beyond.
On Sunday, the final results came in. Thanks to the work of supporters like you, we’ve won 57 of the legislature’s 87 seats – the best showing for the BC NDP since the 90s.
With your help, we’ve managed to make sure BC will continue to have a government that puts people first and keeps our province moving forward.
Whether you volunteered, donated, or simply voted, we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you, for all your support!
As BC’s Finance Minister and Deputy Premier – and throughout her 30 years of public service – Carole James fought for the people of BC with unwavering compassion and thoughtfulness.
Now, Carole is retiring from public office. We will miss her deeply, but her grace and tenacity will continue to inspire new generations of New Democratic leaders.
Join John Horgan and New Democrats across BC in sending a personal message to Carole, thanking her for everything she has done for our party and our province.
Today, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Jains across BC and around the world celebrate Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas.
Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas bring people together to celebrate the victory of light over darkness. This year, celebrations will look a little different, as British Columbians limit their social interactions.
If you’re celebrating this weekend, be sure to remember Dr. Bonnie Henry’s advice on celebrating only with your immediate household and follow all public health orders.
To enjoy Diwali celebrations in BC from the safety of your own home, head to Diwali Fest’s YouTube channel.
Renters in BC have been struggling with cost increases for years. Now, when managing through this pandemic, no renter should have to face the added pressure of a rent increase.
That’s why we’ve taken action to extend the freeze on rent increases until July next year. After swearing in a new Cabinet, we plan to freeze rents through the end of 2021 and permanently cap future rent increases to the rate of inflation.
If you agree with our action to make sure people can stay in their homes as we all keep working to get BC through the pandemic, add your name today.
On November 11, Remembrance Day, British Columbians honoured Canada’s veterans and paused to reflect on the horrors of war.
In a statement, Premier John Horgan urged British Columbians to consider “lives lost and the sacrifices made by those who returned from battle with injuries, both visible and invisible.”
Premier Horgan: “For generations, Canadians have bravely risked their lives to protect ours. They have sacrificed so much to build a better world.”
A new provincial health order is in effect until November 23 across most of the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. If you’re in an affected area, familiarize yourself with the new restrictions and be prepared to limit your social interactions.
British Columbians continue to show extraordinary resilience as we make the sustained effort needed to get through the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, we can protect the most vulnerable in our communities – as well as the economy that supports us all.
