The BC Liberal Government continues to lead Canada not only in its handling of the economy but also in creating a more accessible and affordable post secondary education, British Columbia will now offer students free textbooks online. This one practical step reduces the financial burden borne by students when purchasing textbooks. These changes to the way students can access textbooks is a change for the better and will allow more students to attain a post secondary education without having to worry about how they’re going to come up with the money to pay for their textbooks or their education.
So, while the NDP keep waffling with their plans for education in British Columbia. The BC Liberals have created and begun to enact their Families First Agenda. Unlike the NDP, the BC Liberals do not just talk about making change and helping students they make change happen through action. Providing students with open access to the most used textbooks is one of the actions that have led to students having a quality education in British Columbia. The BC Liberals however are not only committed to providing quality education for the students of British Columbia but also in putting money back in their pockets
The upcoming election is a pivotal moment for British Columbians across this province. The next election will decide whether British Columbia continues to develop a stronger economy so that we can have a stronger and more prosperous society or whether we fall into an economic abyss lead by the NDP. This election is especially important to youth. FIRST, an NDP government would lead to a weakened economy, which would result in fewer jobs for youth in BC. Secondly, a repeat of the NDP’s experiments with post secondary tuition from the 90’s would lead to a crippling of post secondary education in this province. However, I am confident that when youth are presented with the facts about what an NDP government has done and would do, we will have their support because no person young or old would vote to darken their and this provinces future. The BC Young Liberals are here and we are ready to fight for our future, to ensure that British Columbia continues to be a strong and prosperous society and to make sure that the NDP remain in opposition where they belong.

The little girl who answered the door was very cute, but when I asked to see her mom or dad, her mother came up to the door and, without a word, slammed it hard in my face. You see, mom was a teacher. Things didn't always go so well on the doorstep during the campaign because of the teachers' dispute. Understanding that tempers are running high, I still wondered what kind of an example she was setting for her daughter.
I found that people are passionate about their politics, whether it be teachers, environmentalists concerned about oil pipelines or the land reserve, those angry about the HST or the woman who believes that the elites are preparing to survive in underground cities while the world burns (true story)!
The BC Liberal Party has put forward great candidates in both of these ridings. In Chilliwack-Hope Laurie Throness has been working hard to become elected to ensure that families have a secure and stable future with a good quality of life. In Port Moody-Coquitlam Dennis Marsden is running to ensure continued economic growth that will provide jobs for today and opportunities for tomorrow. These great candidates can't get elected alone and will need your help!
To win these campaigns we need volunteers to enter data, scrutineer, go door-knocking, and make phone calls. You can also help simply by talking to your friends and sharing information on social media.
Please volunteer tomorrow, April 19th in one of these two ridings to help elect a BC Liberal candidate. It will be a rewarding, exhilarating and fun experience where you can make friendships that will last for a lifetime.
Come find out about how to get involved in the BCYL at the University of the Fraser Valley. Laurie Throness the candidate in Chilliwack-Hope will be joining us for part of the day to speak with interested students as well. This is a great way to get involved as we launch our campus club at UFV.
Most political events are pretty straightforward: the VIP makes a speech, answers a few questions, and then attempts to leave for their next event through a throng of people looking for a quick picture and a handshake.
However, this isn’t always the case.More…
