Delta: On Tuesday in North Delta, just a week after his mayoral campaign launch in Tsawwassen, George Harvie announced further details regarding his platform and his plan to continue Achieving for Delta.
Boasting yet another crowded venue, Harvie introduced his energetic slate, and unveiled plans for North Delta at New Era Banquet Hall. Hosting two, packed, back-to-back events, Harvie and Achieving for Delta are showing strong signs of building tangible momentum across all of Delta.
Harvie addressed the well-known disconnect between North and South Delta. “Fundamentally, it is about respect for over 60% of Delta’s population”, Harvie said, referring to the larger portion of the City’s population hailing from the North. “I commit that as Mayor and with the support of my Council candidates we will have an equal number of Regular Council meetings in South Delta and North Delta.”
“We will use the new Performing Arts Centre to have a regular Council presence in North Delta. We want to provide the opportunity for residents of North Delta to attend and provide input to Council without having to travel to Ladner”. Harvie proclaimed “It’s about respect, and it’s about fairness, for all of Delta.”
Harvie reminded us that Achieving for Delta is excited to begin knocking on doors and engaging with the community in the lead up to the municipal election. Election Day is October 20, 2018.
