Momentum is building in Paul Dewar's bid to lead Canada's NDP Official Opposition. He's travelling the country: connecting with people and building progressive, grassroots support for his campaign. And it's working. It's why this month has been full of many big endorsements...as people at all levels of our party - and even some outside of it - are gravitating towards his leadership team.
Now, he's coming back to BC. In hopes of meeting with more of you.
We've packed his schedule full, trying to give as many people as possible the chance to feel, first hand, his ability to connect and inspire, to give you a chance to ask your questions and to hear what he has to say on the issues that matter to all of us. And he sure has some interesting and innovative ideas about how to beat Stephen Harper and make Canada a stronger, more caring country. Hopefully you can make it to one of the events:

And, if these times and dates don't work for you, there will be other opportunities and locations in his next rounds. So stay tuned.
All the best,
The BC team for Paul Dewar
