This platform has been developed with input from many British Columbians who have come forward with a wide range of ideas, comments, issues and concerns. We have extracted themes and positions from the submissions to help us form the overarching direction of the party. We are truly grateful for their vision, commitment and engagement in the democratic process.
The BC Green Platform demonstrates our distinct perspective. We need to do more than tinker with current ideas. We believe we need a fundamentally different philosophy of government.
In a democratic society, representatives are elected by the people to represent them – not the corporations or the special interest groups. For more than 30 years we have had governments focused on maximizing returns to private corporations rather than the wellbeing of British Columbians. We will change that.
Our platform sets out our philosophy, our vision and the actions we will take to enrich the lives of all British Columbians. We are enthusiastic about an innovative and sustainable private sector and we know the health and wellbeing of British Columbians is inextricably linked to the economy. However, government should ensure that people are not just a factor of production, working for the economy, but that the economy is working for people.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about the BC Greens.
