Blog Entry 30 Election Campaign 2013

When it comes to political candidates taking the pledge, what rhymes with NDP orange?

More political party candidates are taking the pledge to support the “You Hold the Key” election campaign. The latest wave had a distinctly green tinge to it with just a hint of Tory blue and BC Liberal red.

  • The Green Party of B.C.’s Mayo McDonough (Nanaimo-North Cowichan) signed up just this morning – just before fellow Green Terry Teather (New Westminster) took the pledge. Pins will be going out to them.
  • Manuel Pratas, B.C. Conservative candidate in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows, took the pledge on Wednesday, returning his form via email. I suppose we could try to send him a virtual pin...
  • BC Liberal Fatima Siddiqui (Vancouver-Hastings) took the pledge last weekend.

That means CHF BC has support from candidates from the BC Liberals, BC Conservatives and BC Greens (including Green Party Leader Jane Sterk).

Now: what about those New Democrats? Well, funny you should mention that...
