WHICH DIRECTION FOR THE BC GREEN PARTY?
May 21, 2017
The 2017 BC election results are still up in the air. As citizens await the final vote count, a desperate round of negotiations is going on. As BC Green leader Andrew Weaver says, other parties are “crawling over themselves” to offer deals to the Greens. The Liberal Party is especially intent on keeping power and has a lot of cards to play.
Today the Green Party has a unique opportunity to advance the popular demand for change that was clearly expressed in the election. Yet it faces considerable danger in the rough-and-tumble political game the Liberals play with such calculation.
At this critical moment, the Social Environmental Alliance welcomes Oak Bay-Gordon Head residents, and others from throughout the Lower Island, to join a public discussion about the way forward for the Green Party.
TUESDAY MAY 23 @ 7:00 PM
CAMOSUN COLLEGE, YOUNG BUILDING, ROOM 215
