NDP Government Would Focus on Partnership

NDP leader John Horgan told UBCM delegates today that a New Democrat government would focus on partnership with communities and among provincial parties.

Mr. Horgan said that a government under his leadership would ensure that mental health services are consistent across the province. Horgan also committed the NDP to scrapping the Auditor General for Local Government and re-allocating its budgetary commitments to other priorities, such as mental health or funding resource communities. Horgan also acknowledged the need for new solutions to improve housing affordability in B.C., and pledged to make more Crown land available to communities for social housing.

Referencing the high turnover among Ministers for local government that has occurred over the past decade, Horgan also said that an NDP government would provide greater stability for B.C. communities.
