September 29, 2016 | News Releases

VICTORIA – A New Democrat government will build a new relationship with local governments in British Columbia, says B.C. New Democrat leader John Horgan.

“Instead of listening, learning and embracing partnership with local governments, our premier continues to deny, deflect and download costs,” said Horgan.

Horgan made the remarks during a speech at the Union of B.C. Municipalities’ annual convention. He pledged to end the divisive politics of the Christy Clark Liberals, and head a government that works with local leaders to take the province forward.

VICTORIA – After months of pressure the Christy Clark government has finally agreed to end benefit clawback policies that drove families deeper into poverty, says B.C. New Democrat social development spokesperson Michelle Mungall.

“John Horgan and the B.C. New Democrats demanded that the government do the right thing for families by putting an end their cruel policy of taking away parental leave and other Employment Insurance benefits from disabled British Columbians,” said Mungall.
