Our shared priorities for North Vancouver – Seymour

New Democrats invented our Health Care system. We are the Party you can trust to ensure proper medical care is always available.

New Democrats will create a $10-a-day child care system to make life more affordable for all families.

New Democrats congratulate our Public School Teachers and their historic Supreme Court of Canada ruling restoring class size and composition (which Christy Clark removed as Education Minister in 2002).

New Democrats celebrate and support Arts, Culture and Film. After all, we invented BC’s Labour Input Tax Credit (PDF).
