Please share widely


Grassroots Power & Political Change on Southern Vancouver Island
Tuesday June 13 @ 7:00 pmPaul Phillips Hall, 1923 Fernwood Rd, Victoria
Join & Share the Event on Facebook
The provincial election results have provided social movements on Southern Vancouver Island (Coast Salish and Nuu-chah-Nulth Territory) with a unique window on political power – investing citizens and community organizations with an opportunity to apply grassroots pressure on the New Democrat and Green legislative caucuses and party structures to achieve unprecedented progress for social and ecological justice.
The purpose of this event is to convene an open discussion to identify demands and priorities and how we can collectively work to achieve them.
We hope you can join us – and help empower citizens and social movements with strategies and tactics that apply maximum leverage and move our communities forward.

What's next for BC?



The results are finally in. Christy Clark has lost her majority, and parties are negotiating right now to decide who will form government.

If we flood social media with support for cooperation between the NDP and the Greens, we can convince them to work together. Will you take a Cooperate for BC selfie now?

Take action now
     

What a nail biter! It was down to the the wire, but after two days of counting absentee ballots, final results confirm that Christy Clark and the BC Liberals have lost their majority government. [1]

Now the BC NDP and the BC Greens have a historic opportunity to work together for progress on key issues from fixing our broken voting system, and stopping the Kinder Morgan pipeline, to putting the brakes on Site C, and getting big money out of our politics. We’ve never been closer to victory on these issues, but we need the Greens and NDP to work together.
