Fighting for fair cellphone billing

A cellphone isn’t a luxury. It’s a necessity for life and work today. But billing is too complicated, and people – from students to seniors – are paying too much for this essential service.

That’s why John Horgan has put Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Bob D’Eith in charge of standing up to Ottawa, making sure you know your rights, and getting a better deal for British Columbians.

The time has come to replace confusing contracts and hidden fees with fairer, more-transparent cellphone options. If you agree, please send a message by adding your name today.

More room on the Canada Line

Public transit cuts down on congestion and pollution – and helps you get where you want to be, on time. That’s why we’ve made improving transit infrastructure a major priority.

In 2019, there were over 50 million boardings on the Canada Line. Now, 12 new trains are being added, which will provide more space, frequency, and comfort on this hugely popular service.

Bowinn Ma, Parliamentary Secretary for TransLink: “This service increase is one more example of how our shared goal of reliable and efficient transit is making a difference for people.”

A landmark for housing affordability

Everyone deserves a safe, affordable home. But the BC Liberals all but ignored this most basic human need, creating a housing crisis across BC – and especially in Vancouver.

They left us with a huge challenge, but we’re making progress. A new report shows that the Speculation Tax has contributed to a landmark increase in condos for rent.

We’re further increasing Vancouver’s supply of affordable rentals by building 3,500 new homes, including 102 units for seniors and families on Southwest Marine Drive.

Happy Lunar New Year

This weekend, people across the province are ringing in the Lunar New Year. To all those celebrating, Gong Xi Fa Cai!

We wish you good health and lasting prosperity in the Year of the Rat and invite you to share our Lunar New Year greetings on Facebook.

BC NDP – Fewer fees and more services for a #BetterBC

Fewer fees and more services for a #BetterBC

No more MSP fees

MSP fees added up to an unfair tax, so we eliminated them on New Year’s Day. Now, no British Columbians have to pay any MSP fees, saving families up to $1,800 a year. This is one of the biggest middle-class tax cuts in the history of our province.

Andrew Wilkinson won’t say what he’d do about MSP. But the last time the BC Liberals were in government, fees doubled! Don’t want to go back to paying unfair taxes? Then let the BC Liberals know we can’t move backwards on MSP fees.

Expanding rapid transit

Everybody needs a quick way to get from A to B. And for cleaner air and less-congested roads, our cities need to offer alternatives to driving. That’s why we just announced new and expanded RapidBus services for communities including Maple Ridge and Surrey.

Announcing the new service in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, Selina Robinson, Minister of Municipal Affairs, commented: “We all want affordable, comfortable, and convenient options to get us where we are going. We want to get there quickly and we want to get there on time.”

Improving access to healthcare

Convenient access to high-quality healthcare saves lives. That’s why we’ve built new urgent and primary care centres across the province, serving communities including Kamloops, Vernon, Quesnel, Prince George, and Surrey. And there’s more to come!

This week, at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new facility in Kelowna, Health Minister Adrian Dix noted: ”Thousands of area residents who currently lack a primary care provider will benefit from increased access to same-day appointments for urgent needs and ongoing primary care.”

We couldn't do it without you

In 2017, we formed government with the belief that British Columbians deserve better. Since then, John Horgan’s team has been working tirelessly, already making good on three quarters of our campaign promises.

We’ve accomplished a lot but there’s plenty more to do – which is why we’re so grateful for everyone who chipped in and helped us hit our year-end fundraising target. With your support, we’ll keep working for you.
