VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — It’s another day on the campaign trail for B.C. party leaders.

Andrew Wilkinson of the BC Liberals is in Downtown Vancouver Monday morning at 10 a.m. to make an announcement about infrastructure. He’ll be flanked by fellow candidates Jas Johal, Alexa Loo, and Jet Sunner.

The BC Green’s Sonia Furstenau is on Vancouver Island for two events. First, she will be in the Cowichan Valley to talk about mental health, and then she will meet with stakeholders in Victoria.

NDP Leader John Horgan is holding a virtual town hall at 5 p.m.

Over the weekend, the BC Liberals promised to pause Surrey’s transition to a municipal police force. However, that has been met with mixed reactions from some surrey residents and academics.

Both the BC NDP and Liberals offered plans to ensure more seniors can live in their own homes, closer to their loved ones, for as long as possible.

The NDP also promised to return profits generated by ICBC during the COVID-19 pandemic to drivers in the form of a rebate cheque.

A $500-million program for low to moderate-income earners who spend more than 30 per cent of their income on rent is coming from the BC Greens.
