David Eby kicks off 2017 election campaign

Last night I attended David Eby’s nomination meeting at Kits House, which was effectively his kickoff for the 2017 election.

It was a packed house, with maybe 150-200 people turning out for the relatively routine event – every constituency association needs to hold a nomination meeting and those meetings are essentially rubber stamps when you have a sitting MLA running for re-election.

Eby was introduced by BC NDP leader John Horgan and Vancouver Mount Pleasant MLA Melanie Mark. All three set out some of their plans for the BC NDP’s 2017 election platform.

David Evy is officially the BC NDP candidate for Vancouver Point Grey. #bcpoli #bcelxn2017

I took some audio from the event so you can listen in on the major announcements.

Welcome to PolitiCoast

With a BC election a little over 6 months away, it seems like the perfect time to launch a politics podcast with a distinctly BC focus. There are few others really investigating the topic, so look forward to weekly updates as Scott & I delve into what’s going on.

Stay tuned for our first episode landing on Friday and weekly after that.

In the meantime, things are still getting settled. We’ll be available on all the places you’d probably want to listen to us (or not) soon but for now there’s probably some broken links. Instead, make sure to check out our social media pages for everything that’s going on.
