Jagmeet Singh speaks with British Columbia Premier John Horgan

Today, the Leader of Canada’s NDP Jagmeet Singh and British Columbia Premier John Horgan discussed their shared values on a vaccination plan, paid sick days, reforming the Police Act and decriminalization.

Premier Horgan spoke about the work his government is doing in B.C. to keep people healthy and safe and Singh spoke about ways to help that work in Ottawa.

Singh and Premier Horgan agreed to continue working closely together on these priorities at the federal level in the months ahead.

Quote from British Columbia Premier John Horgan

"In a year that has turned Canadians' lives upside down, we need to keep working to keep people safe, healthy and secure. Jagmeet Singh has always been in it for people and New Democrats have been leading the way in delivering help to those who need it most through the pandemic and beyond. I look forward to continuing our work together to build a recovery that includes everyone."

Quote from the Leader of Canada’s NDP Jagmeet Singh

“Premier Horgan and his government are working for British Columbians to get through this pandemic and I will continue to help him at the federal level to get more help to more people. Whether it’s help to get through the pandemic, to fight systemic racism or to treat addiction as a mental health issue instead of a criminal issue, Premier Horgan’s government and British Columbians can count on us to work with them on these priorities.”
