We don’t know when the nomination vote will be, so it’s important for new members to sign up now. You can join on the BC NDP website. If you don’t have a credit card or cannot afford the $10 fee, use the “printable PDF form” on the top right of the page.
So far two candidates have come forward:
Raj Sihota is the executive director of the BC NDP. She took a leave of absence from the party’s top job to prepare a campaign in Vancouver-Hastings. Sihota ran against Shane Simpson for the nomination in 2004.
Niki Sharma is a climate campaigner with Stand.earth. She’s a lawyer by training and the former chair of the Vancouver park board. Sharma has been endorsed by councillor Christine Boyle, former councillor Andrea Reimer and several sitting MLAs.
