Vote for a BC NDP candidate to keep us moving forward, Horgan urges

Horgan joins candidates in Lower Mainland battlegrounds on the eve of election day

NEW WESTMINSTER — On the eve of election day, John Horgan joined BC NDP candidates in Lower Mainland battleground ridings—outlining his plan to get people through the pandemic and beyond with better health care, help for families, and more opportunities for everyone.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has turned our world upside down,” said Horgan. “But if we keep working together and keep taking care of each other, I know that our best days are still ahead of us. That’s what our plan is all about and that’s my commitment to British Columbians.”

Horgan said only a vote for a BC NDP candidate is a vote to ensure people get the health and seniors care they need. Andrew Wilkinson is planning tax breaks for millionaires, while the Green Party is only planning to invest half what the BC NDP will in health care initiatives. Horgan says these are the wrong priorities.

“Tomorrow, our votes will decide if we help the rich get richer or we help families and seniors with better health care. The stakes couldn’t be higher,” said Horgan. “We’ve accomplished too much together to go backwards now. I’m for moving forward, not just for those at the top, but for everyone.”

John Horgan’s plan to help people through the pandemic – and beyond:

  • Improve health and seniors care by hiring 7,000 new frontline workers for long-term care and launching a ten-year cancer plan.
  • Make life easier for families with a new $1,000 recovery benefit and more quality, affordable $10 a day childcare.
  • Create 18,000 jobs a year building schools, hospitals and public transit, as well as creating new opportunities as we fight climate change.
