Member's Statement ~ election day in BC and in New Westminster and Burnaby

Mr. Peter Julian (New Westminster—Burnaby, NDP): Mr. Speaker, Saturday was election day in British Columbia for municipalities right across the province and in New Westminster we are happy to see the re-election of our social democratic mayor, Jonathan Coté, to note the important diversity we see following the election to council of Nadine Nakagawa and Chinu Das and New Westminster's school board, where 85% of the elected representatives are now women.

In Burnaby, we congratulate my long-time friend Mike Hurley, who is now elected mayor. He will do a great job. I would be remiss in not mentioning the election of former NDP MP Kennedy Stewart as mayor of the city of Vancouver, the largest city in the province. He will be terrific.

Let us join together to thank all of those candidates for running for elected office. This is the very foundation of our democracy. Thanks to all candidates for putting their names forward and for working to make our communities better.
