Thank You from Mike Farnworth

The past few months have been an incredible time for both myself and the BC NDP. We have all been through a leadership campaign that has seen thousands of new members from across the province join or rejoin the BC NDP, and many more people become active and energized with hope about the future of the party.

While I hoped to win, I would like to extend a warm Congratulations to Adrian Dix, who was elected as the new leader of the BC NDP on April 17th. Both he and all the other candidates worked incredibly hard to put on a campaign that was both exciting and collegial. I know that we will be able to move forward as a united caucus and party.

Most importantly, I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to each and very volunteer and supporter on the campaign, across the province, and particularly in Port Coquitlam. I was simply amazed by the encouragement, dedication and incredible amount of hardwork that the grassroots volunteers gave to the campaign each and every day. This was not just my campaign, it was ours. So from the bottom of my heart, Thank You.

I encourage all the volunteers and supporters to stay involved in politics and to keep working to make BC the progressive province its residents deserve. I hope I'm able see each and every one of you in the near future so that I can thank you in person for the help you gave myself. As cliche as it sounds, it was a truly inspiring process because of the support from yourselves.

Thank you very much,

Mike Farnworth
