The Vancouver Island Party’s Policy On Early Childhood Education

by Rob
The most important period of development for any person is early childhood. The careful nurturing, educating, and caring of young children sets them up for a productive and healthy life. Conversely, abuse and neglect, all too often seen in our society and around the world, lessen the young person's long term chances at success. It increases the likelihood of future disorders, exacerbates those that are already present, and often results in homelessness and crime, burdens, which the province and the country as a whole have to bear. Our best option for countering this is prevention in the first place; and [...]

Vancouver Island is Short-Changed $766.8 million by the BC Liberals

by Robin Richardson
Victoria, BC, April 12, 2017. For Immediate Release. "The BC Liberals 'first time ever' Vancouver Island platform continues the pattern of provincial governments largely ignoring Vancouver Island since BC joined Confederation in 1871," says Dr. Robin Richardson, Leader of The Vancouver Island Party. "Unfortunately, we still remain a neglected 'fringe region' within British Columbia." "With Vancouver Island representing 16.3% of the population of British Columbia, Vancouver Island is only being promised $66.8 million, or 0.15% of the $5.217 billion of infrastructure, transit and post-secondary capital spending promised for BC over the next three years to 2020." observed Dr. Richardson, a [...]

Jin Yang-Riley VIP Candidate Oak Bay Gordon Head Offers Helpful Suggestions

by Robin Richardson
The following was sent to me from Jin Yang-Riley, our VIP Candidate Oak Bay-Gordon Head: To All VIP Candidates From my signature-collecting experience, I learned that most people I talked to did not really care about whether Vancouver Island becomes a province. Therefore, I came up with a suggestion, in terms of our strategies on how to attract people and get their support: 1. At this current stage, instead of emphasizing on “making Vancouver Island the 11th province” we should emphasize that The VIP is the only party who will strive for more direct benefits and attention for the residents [...]
