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