FURSTENAU -- I’m saddened that the BC NDP are so intent on the pursuit of power that they would sacrifice the health and safety of British Columbians
NOTE ... the following was released yesterday afternoon, following the election call of Premier John Horgan
triggered an early election today in the middle of a global pandemic.
This doesn’t come as a surprise but it’s still extremely disappointing.
I’m saddened that the BC NDP are so intent on the pursuit of power that they would sacrifice the health and safety of British Columbians.
The last thing we need right now is an election.
We need a stable government that puts people before politics – a government that puts its ministers to work bettering the lives of British Columbians, rather than hitting the campaign trail for their re-election.
We are all scared right now. We’re worried about our health, our families, the cost of living and the stability of our economy. COVID-19 cases are still rising in our province every day and our children are starting school with no assurances of safety.
I’m ready to fight for our province. BC Greens are the only party with a vision for a truly equitable, sustainable, just recovery. We need to put people first by investing in services like childcare, education, and affordable housing because happy, healthy people are the foundation of a healthy economy.
We’re going to need your help leading up to voting day on October 24. This election is going to look a lot different than 2017 but we still need all hands on deck. Right now, we're working on getting our candidates and campaigns ready across the province.
We must turn our fears, worries, and anger into motivation to run our best campaign yet. BC needs our party more than ever and it’s time we show this province we’re ready to lead.
Thank you and I’ll talk to you soon,
Leader, BC Green Party
MLA, Cowichan riding
