- What are the different candidates’ positions on forming a confidence and supply agreement (“CASA”) in the future with one of the other parties?
- What will happen to the BC Green Party's agreement with the NDP when the new leader is elected?
- How can I volunteer or get involved with one of the campaigns?
- Will leadership candidates visit all parts of BC? How can we encourage them to visit our region?
What are the different candidates’ positions on forming a confidence and supply agreement (“CASA”) in the future with one of the other parties?
This is a great question.
We encourage you to reach out to the candidates to ask them questions like this. This question will also likely come up in one of the debates.
In short, nothing. The agreement (called a confidence and supply agreement, or "CASA" for short) will remain in place.
If new leader is a current BC Green MLA, then they have already signed CASA and agreed to keep it in place until the next scheduled election in October 2021.
A BC Green Party leader (whether they have a seat in the legislature or not) cannot force members of caucus who have already signed CASA to break the agreement.
Thanks for your interest in getting involved! Leadership candidates will be grateful for your support.
Candidates will likely have their own campaign websites where you can sign up quickly to volunteer.
As candidates register with the party, we will also post their contact information on our website.
All leadership campaigns are obligated to follow the directives of the Provincial Health Officer. While gatherings of less than 50 people are currently permitted, all attendees must be part of one another's expanded bubble. With this in mind, we believe it is unlikely that candidates will be traveling significant distances because of provincial health directives to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Most events will be held online, which makes them accessible to British Columbians, no matter where they live.
