VICTORIA – Andrew Mercier and Megan Dykeman were sworn into the Legislature virtually today as the new BC New Democrat MLAs for Langley and Langley East following an historic election.
The 57 new BC NDP members were sworn in as part of part of British Columbia’s 42nd Parliament, all focused on supporting people through the COVID-19 pandemic and delivering on their commitments to British Columbians.
“People in Langley deserve strong representation in our provincial legislature, and people here can be confident that your new NDP MLAs will be bringing the voices of our community forward as we work to create a province that works for everybody,” said Mercier, MLA for Langley. “John Horgan and your New Democrat government have your back.”
“It is such an honour and privilege to be able to serve the people of Langley East as their MLA,” said Dykeman, MLA for Langley East. “There is no challenge I’d rather be taking on than making life better for people in Langley as a member of our new New Democrat government at such a crucial time, I look forward immensely to what we’ll be able to accomplish over the coming years on the issues that matter to people here.”
The election of this New Democrat caucus features a number of notable milestones, including:
- First majority-women governing caucus in Canadian history
- Largest BC NDP caucus in history
- Highest number of IBPOC MLAs ever in a caucus in BC
British Columbians put their trust in New Democrats to lead the province’s pandemic recovery, and this diverse team will ensure no one gets left behind as we move forward.
