After a PowerPoint presentation on The Vancouver Island Party, our VIP Leader, Dr. Robin Richardson, will present important information on:
1. Robin’s campaign to get elected VIP MLA for Nanaimo in a by-election expected in January or February 2019.
This is a unique opportunity. If Robin gets elected, the provincial MLA seat count would be:
a. NDP/Green Coalition = 43 (NDP = 40; Green = 3)
b. BC Liberals = 42
c. VIP = 1
d. Speaker = 1
Robin would not join the NDP/Green Coalition. He would look at every proposed piece of legislation from the point of view whether or not it was good for Vancouver Island. He would not be obstructionist. If the legislation was good for all of British Columbia, including Vancouver Island, he would support it.
With the delicate balance in the legislature, Robin would be able to demand in return for his support a number of important things, including:
1.1. Official Party Status (OPS). The Greens got the NDP to amend the BC Constitution to reduce OPS from 4 to 2. As a regional provincial party, Robin would argue that the VIP’s 1 out of 14 ridings is 3.22 times larger than 2 out of 87 ridings.
OPS would guarantee that Robin gets to ask at least one question during the daily Question Period. Independents seldom get to ask a question.
OPS also guarantees that Robin would be Chair or Vice Chair of a Legislative Committee. Robin would try for the Education Committee.
Finally, OPS guarantees a substantial research budget.
1.2. Removal of the SOGI 123 gender fluidity teaching resource in all of the School Districts in British Columbia.
1.3. Other family values legislation.
1.4. A referendum in October 2019, just on Vancouver Island, with the ballot question being. “Are you in favour of Vancouver Island becoming a province of Canada? Yes or No.”
1.5. Other economic, social, environmental and cultural policies supported by the Vancouver Island Party as described on our website, www.VanIsleParty.com
2. The Campaign which Robin is leading in School District 63 – Saanich to elect a majority of 4 out of 7 School Trustees who are opposed to the gender fluidity Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI 123) teaching resource which is embedded in classes from Kindergarten to Grade 12. It is both unscientific and dangerous.
If anyone is interested in becoming a school trustee, the Nomination Period ends at 4:00 pm on Friday, September 14. Nomination Forms will be available at the meeting.
A Guide for School Trustee Candidates can be found on the website of the British Columbia School Trustees Association at www.bcsta.org.
Being a School Trustee is a 4-year part-time commitment during the school year with 15 to 20 hours a week. There are all-expenses paid training conferences in November 29 to December 1, 2018 and in January 25-26, 2019 in Vancouver. There is a monthly stipend of about $1,800.
There should be no financial obligation for your School Trustee Campaign. The Central Committee should be able to raise the money for you for paid advertising in the Times Colonist.
You do not have to live in the Saanich School District in order to be a Trustee.
Being a School Trustee would be excellent experience and public exposure to being a VIP candidate in the next provincial election, expected in 2021.
