BC First Party Principles
- BC First recognizes the concerns of the citizens of British Columbia surrounding special interests financial lobbying for favourable legislation. With our party, MLA’s will be responsible for their constituents in their riding and the Province as a whole. This reduces the influence of the ‘pay to play’ system in place. Simply put, the good of BC comes first.
- End “electing a dictatorship” by making the Executive branch (premier and cabinet) accountable to the Legislative Assembly through an open committee process.
Major proposals (such as Site C) or policy change as well as budgets and budget amendments must go before an open legislative committee for consideration and approval. Legislative decisions of a predetermined dollar value/environmental impact must have input from the people most impacted.
- Limit election funding to “individuals” and to no more than $1,000 per donation.
