The council serves CUPE locals in the geographical region within (but not exclusive to) the lower mainland of British Columbia.
As part of the Ken Davidson Memorial Golf Tournament, CUPE Metro donates annually to Metro area schools with many needs. The school will use the donation to help supplement their technology by purchasing IPads and a power point projector.

How close was it last time? In 2011, Harper won his majority by just 14 seats. And his margin of victory across those 14 seats? Just 6,201 votes, or an average of less than 450 votes per seat. And in that election, across the country more than 9 million eligible voters didn't bother to vote!
It's clear that a majority of Canadians want to defeat Harper--and in B.C., the only way to do that is to elect New Democrats. In 2011, the NDP came second to the Conservatives in 19 of the 21 seats Harper won here, while the Liberals finished second in just two.
In B.C., New Democrats defeat Conservatives.
Report will be presented at the regular Metro Council meeting.
