2017 BC Election - We Vote!

No matter who you vote for, your vote is an important expression of you as a citizen.

It is critically important to our democracy that we have engaged citizens, and the best thing we can do is to set a good example by pledging to vote and proudly proclaiming that we are voters.

Then, let your family, your friends, your neighbours know about the election and encourage them to get involved in the democratic process.

We’ve been hearing from BCGEU members from around BC who want to get more informed and involved before they vote on May 9. They want to make sure that their voices are heard, and that the issues important to them are part of the discussion.

As a first step towards helping ensure our members’ voices are heard, we surveyed hundreds of BCGEU activists to find out which election issues were important to them. The results were clear – there are five issues that will determine how BCGEU members will vote on May 9th– and they are:

1.       Health and Seniors’ Care 

2.       Government Accountability 

3.       Affordability 

4.       Environment 

5.       Poverty and Homelessness
