Making our Message Heard - BC Election 2013: A New Vision for BC

As the election draws near, BCCA has been in discussion with the provincial parties to highlight the role that co-operatives can play in fashioning a new vision for economic and social development in BC.

We believe that now is the time to highlight the contribution that co-ops and credit unions have made to the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities across the province. We want to show how co-operation can reconcile the economic needs of our province with the legitimate environmental and social concerns of British Columbians.

People are looking for a vision that promotes economic development that is socially responsible, and social development that is economically viable.
