Event in detail
Every Vote Counts!
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.
