Many things have happened since we last worked together here in Kelowna: an energizing BC Green Party convention in Kamloops, the anniversary of the confidence and supply agreement with the NDP, and the launch of the campaign for electoral reform.
However, issues such as Site C and LNG remind us of the incredible need for proportional representation and additional BC Green MLAs. It's up to us to make this change possible. Here is how you can help locally:
Join us for the formation meeting of the Kelowna Greens Riding Association!
In order to officially form, the Riding Association will need to elect people to the following roles: President, Financial Coordinator, Communications Coordinator, and Data Coordinator. If interest is high, other important roles can be opened for nomination, including Membership, Fundraising, Event, and Media Coordinators, and Members-at-large. If you are interested in running or nominating someone else for election, contact [email protected] for more information on the roles.
Our goal is to represent each of the Kelowna ridings: Kelowna West, Kelowna-Mission and Kelowna-Lake Country. As such, our executive will need to have at least one representative from each of these ridings.
Anyone can attend, but you must live in one of the Kelowna ridings and be a member in good standing to run, nominate, or vote for the executive members. Renew your membership here with a minimum $10 donation. Encourage your friends to get involved.
Please RSVP to receive the meeting agenda closer to the meeting.
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.
