The environment is an important part of every decision that John Horgan and the BC NDP makes. We must fight climate change and protect both our water and land. Clean water is a basic human right.

Wildlife habitat must be protected. Christy Clark and her Liberal government have failed in every respect; trophy hunting bears, failing to protect the drinking water of Hullcar residents, allowing mining and forestry companies to self regulate then not holding them responsible for the damage they cause.

John Horgan and the BC NDP have a multi-pronged approach to create jobs and improve our economy while protecting our environment.

Transit and infrastructure improvements are two areas we know will create sustainable jobs that pay a living wage and protect our environment at the same time. Jobs in technology and the green energy sector are long term, family supporting jobs in our own communities. John Horgan and the BC NDP have a comprehensive plan to bring real jobs back to our communities, not just part time work in the Lower Mainland.
