Now that we’ve all had some time to decompress after the federal election it’s time to start thinking about next steps. Our next provincial election is less than 18 months away and we’re confident that with your help we can get a lot of new Green MLAs elected!
Over 110 thousand people on Vancouver Island alone voted for the Green Party in the federal election and we need to capture this momentum. Many of you were involved with the federal election in some way and as a result the Green community of experienced campaigners has grown tremendously in the last year.
Now, we need to get together and start planning for 2017.
We would like to invite you to an introductory meeting with the regional BC Green organizers on what needs to happen next so that we’re ready in 2017.
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
