The BC NDP held its party convention over the weekend, with “a renewed commitment to building a future worth fighting for.”

Premier David Eby told party members he’s proud of the progress his government has made so far, but he’s nowhere near satisfied.

Over three days, more than 700 delegates from all corners of the province participated in development sessions and resolution debates as the party plans for the 2024 election, passing resolution to expand the speculation and vacancy tax, condemn rising transphobic and homophobic hate, and increase food production while combating rising grocery prices, among other things.

Members also overwhelmingly endorsed Eby’s leadership with 93.1% voting in support.

The B.C. election is scheduled for fall 2024.
