British Columbians will head to the polls on October 24. As with every BC election, CBABC will bring forward justice issues to the parties and candidates, while maintaining a non-partisan position overall.
We will carefully review the party platforms and respond on points of agreement or concern, as necessary. We will reach out to party leaders and MLA candidates who are lawyers, to ensure justice issues are front and centre, particularly as it relates to Enhanced Care, Indigenous Justice, and operation of the courts during the pandemic. And we will continue to collaborate with our partners throughout the BC justice system.
Work is underway on An Agenda for Justice 2021. This document will be our guiding platform for advocacy with the BC Government over the next several years, regardless of the outcome of this election.
If you have an issue you want CBABC to raise in our election discussions and beyond, please be in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
