Our shared priorities for North Vancouver – Seymour

  • New Democrats invented our Health Care system. We are the Party you can trust to ensure medical care will not be taken away.
  • 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).
