BC First Party Platform
Direct Democracy – A NEW Beginning
BC First has a goal of creating a province that puts your interests first. In fact, it’s right in the name. We are not the ‘old guard’ stifling change or offering lip service only to turn around once elected and keep the same old same old in place. We feel the status quo has gone long enough and is precisely why virtually all our systems in place are in bad shape. Far too often the word ‘change’ is used and yet we see none of it transpire.
BC First believes that democracy is not one day every 4 years to pick from 2 choices with minimal differences beyond party colours and slogans. For democracy and choice to be real, it should not end at the ballot box and start with the party donors. We are ‘Your Voice, Your Choice’ We know that day to day operations are what you need us to take care of. We also know that decisions that impact your life, wallet, land, property need your voice.
BC First will move to create systems and checks on us and future governments to make sure voices are heard and used to create fair policy for all. One means to do this is allowing votes similar to what happens in other countries already to ensure that policies and decision go through the proper channels and when they do, those recommendations are adhered to, not ignored. We see what you do, the fact that legislation is designed to ensure the gravy train of donations for economic favour are what is driving this Province.
Everything has its beginning, all good things with big first steps by leaders willing to make a stand. Change begins with all of us and that time is now!
