What to Expect
The race to become the next leader of the NDP – and Premier – is becoming more competitive than many thought, with Anjali Appadurai’s campaign outspending David Eby’s on social media ad-buys. Appadurai’s focus on environmental issues has drawn attention to her campaign and an ability to sign up new members for whom climate change is the number one issue. However, the campaign is facing allegations of buying memberships for potential voters and is currently under investigation by the party for a potential breach of the B.C. Elections Act.
The Week That Was
Through a Memorandum of Understanding, the provincial government and the Northwest B.C. Resource Benefits Alliance are working together to support economic growth in that part of the province.
With a $62 million investment from the B.C. government, the City of Abbotsford will be able to build a new well and water-treatment system.
Thirty-six communities across the province will be recipients of almost $1.9 million in funding from the Community Emergency Preparedness fund to help mitigate the effects of extreme weather conditions.
