International Volunteer Day

Friend,

Today is International Volunteer Day and we want to take this opportunity to let you know how important you are! 

Volunteering matters. Your contributions to the BC Greens are helping us grow so that we can tackle the big issues in British Columbia, get more MLAs elected and build better communities, towns, cities, province and beyond.

After the 1972 election, Dave Stupich became BC’s Agriculture Minister, and under his leadership the ALR was established. The BCNDP deserve full credit for the legislation, but very few know the full story.
