Dogwood Initiative: Getting out the vote for MPs who will build a better BC

This election, the Dogwood Initiative going all out to get their network of more than 250,000 supporters out to vote for MPs who will stand up for our province, defend our coast from oil tankers and help rebuild our democracy.

The Dogwood Initiative is  not endorsing candidates and is  not supporting any one political party. However you can find information about where the candidates stand on the key issues listed above, how the race is shaping up and who has the best chances so far, by riding. Then pledge to vote in this pivotal election, and join Dogwood's teams to canvass and get out the vote in your riding.  British Columbia electoral races could decide this election, so get involved.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
