BC NDP News – Answering your questions for a #BetterBC

Answering your questions for a #BetterBC

 

Building a #BetterBC
John wants to hear from you
People across our province have had their lives turned upside down by COVID-19. As 2020 draws to a close, Premier John Horgan wants to know how you’re doing – and he wants to answer your questions about his government’s response to the pandemic.

Who’s eligible for the BC Recovery Benefit? How can we better protect seniors? Whatever your question is, John wants to hear it. And early next year, we’ll be sharing some of your questions – and John’s answers – on social media and the BC NDP blog.

Let's reach our goal
Thanks to supporters like you, we won a historic election. But the next four years will be challenging as John Horgan’s government works to build a recovery that truly benefits all British Columbians – not just those at the top.

At the BC NDP, we’ll be doing everything we can to support John’s team. But we need your help. We’re going all out to hit our critical end-of-year fundraising target – and, with less than two weeks left, we still haven’t reached our goal. Chip in today and get up to 75% back at tax time.

Save $400 on your ICBC rates
British Columbians have been paying too much for car insurance. But with the introduction of ICBC’s new coverage plan next spring, drivers will save an average of about $400 – BC’s largest decrease in insurance rates for more than 40 years.

On top of that, we’ll keep pushing for an extra COVID-19 rebate to give money directly to drivers. Add your name today if you support our work to create a more affordable auto insurance system with better care benefits for British Columbians.

BC's vaccine plan
Last week, BC’s COVID-19 vaccine deployment plan was announced – and this week, the first British Columbians were immunized. Doses will continue to arrive in BC over the coming weeks, and a system that will make it easy to register for immunization is in development.

The full timeline for widespread immunization will depend on vaccine approval and availability – with a rigorous safety and efficacy process in place. As the details of the deployment plan continue to develop, please keep following all provincial health orders and advice.

As Premier Horgan said, announcing the plan: “Hope is on the horizon. It won’t be overnight and we must continue to do our part to protect each other, but this is a huge step in our fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.”

BC NDP News – Celebrating safely for a #BetterBC

Celebrating safely for a #BetterBC

 

Building a #BetterBC
Celebrate the holidays safely
As the holidays approach, COVID-19 is still with us. British Columbians have made extraordinary sacrifices during the pandemic – and to protect our loved ones and communities, we will have to keep doing everything we can to help stop the spread through December and into the New Year.

That means we’ll have to find new ways to celebrate the holidays. As Dr. Bonnie Henry said this week: “If you’re used to having multiple family members come over for Christmas and getting together and having those large dinners together – now you need to do it remotely.”

When making your plans, please remember that Dr. Henry’s restrictions on events and social gatherings have been extended until January 8. If we take the rules seriously and plan our holidays around them, we can all hope to have a much happier New Year.

The BC Recovery Benefit
People across the province are feeling extraordinary pressure as the COVID-19 pandemic continues and the holiday season approaches.

That’s why your BC NDP government is coming forward with additional support for people and families. The tax-free BC Recovery Benefit will help 3.7 million British Columbians.

Do you support this initiative to provide direct relief for British Columbians who need it the most? Then add your name today.

Vaccinating those at risk
Mass vaccination will be essential to ending the COVID-19 pandemic. And it’s vital that the first vaccine doses go to those most at risk – including seniors and healthcare workers.

On Tuesday, Premier John Horgan announced that BC is planning to immunize 4,000 at-risk people by the end of next week.

Initially, there will not be enough doses available to have any impact on community transmission – so please continue to follow the latest health orders and advice.

Happy Chanukah
Sundown on Thursday marked the beginning of Chanukah. Like every year, Jewish families across BC and the world are celebrating the miracle at the heart of Chanukah – a single pot of oil that fed the flame in the Holy Temple for eight full days.

Of course, celebrations will look different this year, as people do what they can to keep their families safe. In case you’re looking for a safe way to celebrate, the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver is throwing a virtual Chanukah party at 6:00pm tonight.

Defending human rights

Human rights represent the foundation of a free and fair society. This past Thursday, December 10, marked Human Rights Day – which commemorates the UN’s adoption of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights.

Your BC NDP government is dedicated to defending the fundamental rights enshrined in this declaration, including freedom of expression and the right to an adequate standard of living. That’s why, two years ago, we established the Office of the Human Rights Commissioner.

BC’s Office of the Human Rights Commissioner works to uphold human rights and ensure we fulfil our responsibilities to one another. It addresses the root causes of inequality, discrimination, and injustice in our province – through education, research, and advocacy.

Let's keep BC moving forward

As we head towards the end of 2020, John Horgan’s government is already busy keeping up the fight against COVID-19 and building a recovery that works for all the people of BC.

And at the BC NDP, we are dedicated to supporting our government’s work – and building on the progress we’ve made.

If you want to support our work over the next 12 months, the quickest and easiest way is to help us hit our end-of-year fundraising targets. Donate now and you’ll get up to 75% back at tax time.
