Vous êtes invités à la TOURNÉE BC avec les concurrents de leadership!

(En anglais seulement)

All the contestants for the position of leader of the Green Party of Canada (GPC) are coming to BC! Well, they’re coming virtually in this case. You may recall the GPC did a BC regional town hall with them all. There was a lot of interest, and over 180 questions submitted. Sadly, because there were nine contestants on the stage, they only answered a few out of the 180.

 

So, we are bringing the contestants back, one by one, for one-hour Zoom sessions.

Who are we? Five BC EDAs have collaborated on this project, and three EDAs are each hosting three of the contestants. (See the schedule and registration links below). Kelowna-Lake Country (KLC), North Island-Powell River (NIPR), and Saanich-Gulf Islands (SGI) are the hosts. 

We interrupt this content with a public service announcement: YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF GPC BY SEPTEMBER 3 IN ORDER TO VOTE FOR THE NEW LEADER. To check on your membership status, you can email support@greenparty.ca

Points about the ballot and why it’s important to rank all your choices: 

With ranked choice voting (RCV), voters can honestly rank candidates in order of choice.

 

And, with RCV,  voters know that if their first choice doesn’t win, their vote automatically counts for their next choice instead. This frees voters from worrying about how others will vote and which candidates are more or less likely to win. This method avoids the tendency of some voters to vote strategically.

 

The ballot is required to contain a NOTA (None of the Above) entry which can also be ranked. If there is a contestant you definitely DON’T WANT you can either not rank them at all, or rank them below NOTA.


No matter who wins, the ranked ballot provides very valuable information to the new leader and party membership about the party membership values beyond the first choice preferences. This gives the leader an idea of what kind of support there is for certain messages and approaches when they unite the party and reach out to different camps after the election. 

We hope to see you at some - or all - of these Zoom events. This is a year of big change for the Green Party, and our new leader will be a big part of that change. Vote. Don’t miss out on having your say.
