Thank You!

photoIt was a great honour to be representing the New Democrats in the most beautiful riding in Canada, North Vancouver- Seymour.

A big thank you goes out to everyone who donated, took a sign and especially those who volunteered their time and talents to make this a better BC.

With very low resources we were able to hold the incredible vote gains Jim Hanson made in 2013.

I enjoyed meeting the other candidates and appreciate the hard work they put in to their campaigns.

To our dedicated volunteers, please don’t lose your passion for progress. Take a few days to process the results, clean up and get ready for round two. My experience from the federal minority governments of 2006, 2008 and 2011 is that a minority government will not make it to the next fixed election date in 2021.

The BC Liberals have bucket-loads of corporate cash in the bank. They know we’ve spent everything we’ve got to get here. If the Liberals manage to hold on to power in a minority situation, expect the BC Liberals to engineer their defeat within a year or two, before the other parties can build up reserves. Then watch the Liberals run with fully-funded campaigns across the board as the rest of us scramble.

Save your signs, save your nickels and get ready for round two.
