Dear Paov --

We've been busy! Over the last four months, we've organized an Accountability Assembly to hold the BC government accountable to their seniors' care mandate, fought for a winning decision at the BC Court of Appeal on the Cambie case, and held a drug policy dialogue with the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition. Our work for this year isn't even done yet.

At the same time, we know that deep systemic change takes time, consistent public advocacy, and ongoing action. The best way to support our ongoing work for deep systemic change in public health care is to become a sustaining monthly donor of the BC Health Coalition.

Will you become a sustaining monthly donor via credit card by clicking on the button below? Be sure to select "Monthly" in the amount section at the top of the page so your donation occurs monthly.

Did you see Minister Dix's response?

NationBuilder r1

Paov --

On the evening of October 11, members of the BC Health Coalition, allied organizations, seniors, workers, and families from all over BC came together at our Accountability Assembly to host Minister of Health Adrian Dix. Five storytellers representing seniors, families, and workers shared their Home Support and Long-Term Care stories and each asked a question to the Minister. You can watch the event and read our report back HERE.

Storytellers asked the Minister questions on his mandate

The Assembly was the culmination of months of work by the BCHC Accountability Assembly Project Team, with representatives from seniors organizations, labour unions, Family Councils and other labour and community groups.

Over 150 organizational participants representing tens of thousands of individual members and 400 individual participants made it clear to Minister Dix that we need to improve and expand publicly funded home care and end for-profit long-term care!

Thank you for speaking up for democracy and healthy debate

The BC NDP is about to decide whether to disqualify Anjali Appadurai from their leadership race. They should welcome the groundswell of new members that Anjali’s campaign has brought to the party -- and welcome the critical discourse that Anjali brings to this leadership race.

Join me in having your say about the importance of democracy and healthy debate. Here’s a tool to do that: https://nwmd.io/s/email/ZxQ6ATXEHPPhQWijLbA=/r

Furstenau: Appadurai's disqualification is a sad day for democracy

For immediate release
October 19, 2022

VICTORIA B.C. - Sonia Furstenau, Leader of the BC Green Party and Adam Olsen, MLA for Saanich North and the Islands, released the following statement on the disqualification of Anjali Appadurai from the BC NDP leadership contest:
"This is a sad day for democracy," said Furstenau. "Ms. Appadurai's campaign spoke honestly about the overlapping health care, climate, and affordability crisis that British Columbians are facing and this government's failure to make progress on them. It's no surprise that so many people were inspired by her message. To those who joined Anjali's campaign with so much hope: please don't give up on politics. The stakes are too high. It's important that your voice is heard and we are listening."
Olsen added, "The BC NDP's message to climate voters has been clear: you are not welcome in the BC NDP. The fact that they have treated these voters with such hostility and suspicion has shown us all exactly where their priorities lie. This is the same party that voted with the BC Liberals to expand fossil fuel subsidies in 2018 - there was no way they were ever going to let a climate activist lead their party."
"The governing...
