Let’s Make Government Work

“New Democrats are committed to reforming our electoral system and government institutions in the interest of citizens. We are recommitting ourselves to initiatives that would improve how citizens elect their government and how government operates. New Democrats will put the question to British Columbians…”

– Gary Holman, Official Opposition Spokesperson for Democratic Reform

If elected government in 2017, the New Democrats will give British Columbians a vote on election reform so they can decide if they want a proportional representation system in place for the 2021 provincial election. The New Democrats would campaign in favour of the change that is put before the people.

Since 2005 New Democrats have also identified a number of other problems with BC’s democratic process and have offered solutions in the following areas:

  • Fairer Elections
  • Greater Power for Your Representative
  • More Open and Accountable Government and Politicians
  • Citizen Influence

Community town halls:
