Burnaby-Douglas and Burnaby-New Westminster NDP
associations are ready for their Quebec City policy conference next month. Between the two ridings held by MPs Bill Siksay and Peter Julian the associations have a plethora of policy proposals.
From NAFTA to undocumented workers, from disabilities to support for the transgendered, from Olympics to autism funding, the NDP has plenty of Burnaby-based policy to vote on at convention. Airline crew numbers is put forward in one resolution, while the elimination of citizenship fees appears in another. Balanced budgets get covered by the Burnaby crowd as well. (Maybe the federal NDP are different than the Glen Clark crowd.) Refugee protection and omnibus motions on prosperity and democratic reform issues also come out of Burnaby NDP associations.
The Ottawa Vanier NDP association cites Julian's M-42 10-percent ethanol bill in one of their policies.
