"As I made the decision to run for leader of the BC NDP, I was humbled and honored by the support I received in my community, in my caucus, and from people throughout the province of British Columbia. In the coming weeks, I will be introducing you to many of my supporters. LIke you, they are proud members of their communities who give their time and energy to improving their communities and our province. Some are MLA's, some former MLA's. Some environmental activists, some business people, some both. All are hard working British Columbians, ready for a change from a BC Liberal government that doesn't represent them." - John
