Independent BC's mission is clear: to educate voters about the electoral process and promote independent candidates for election as Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) across BC. Their focus on independent candidates represents a bold step towards revitalizing democracy and giving communities a voice that truly reflects their needs and aspirations.


Founded in response to staggering voter disengagement in the 2020 provincial election, Independent BC is committed to reinvigorating faith in the democratic process. With over 1.5 million voters abstaining from casting their ballots, it's evident that many citizens feel disenfranchised by a system that no longer represents them. Independent BC aims to change that by offering a 'new way to vote' and empowering communities to recruit independent candidates who truly prioritize their interests.


During our Zoom call, Rick Dignard will shed light on Independent BC's initiatives, including their efforts to educate voters, assist communities in selecting independent candidates, and provide valuable guidance to aspiring MLAs. His insights will undoubtedly inspire us to explore alternative avenues for political engagement and consider the vital role of independent voices in shaping our democratic future.


Don't miss this opportunity to learn from Rick Dignard and gain valuable insights into the transformative work of Independent BC. Whether you're a seasoned political activist or someone looking to make a difference in your community, this Zoom call is for you!


Join us on Tuesday, April 9, 2024, at 6:30 pm Winnipeg time, and be part of the conversation that's shaping the future of democracy in British Columbia and beyond.


See you there!



📅 Date: Tuesday, April 9, 2024 🕡 Time: 6:30 PM Central Time 📍 Location: Zoom provided


Let's come together as a community to explore the issues that matter most to us and chart a path forward toward a stronger, more prosperous Canada. See you there!

  8. Wins of the Week (4)

    1. #1 Pick of the week https://thecanadianindependent.substack.com/p/arbitrator-rules-toronto-hospital Arbitrator Jasbir Parmar has ruled that two hospital employees who were terminated by Humber River Hospital in Toronto for refusing to take the COVID-19 vaccine were wrongfully terminated. Parmar outlined in her ruling that the hospital initially implemented a vaccine policy aligned with the provincial mandate, permitting unvaccinated hospital employees to undergo regular COVID testing. However, Humber River Hospital exceeded the provincial mandate by eliminating this option in December 2021. Instead, the hospital opted to permit only fully vaccinated individuals and those with documented medical exemptions to continue working. It was the employees union who stepped in to defend the two part-time clerical employees Stacy Hughes and Marisol Sanchez.

    2. #2 Pick of the week https://thecanadianindependent.substack.com/p/watch-perfectly-healthy-17-year-old  Four days later after Sean's first Pfizer shot his dad says he developed “brown circles around his eyes, a rash, vomiting, an extremely sore shoulder, opposite to his injection shoulder” and was taken to the emergency department. According to Dan the doctor at the emergency department did not do any blood work, a D-dimer or troponin test and says his son was just given a pain reliever for his shoulder and sent home. Thirty-three days after Sean's first Pfizer shot, he was found dead on the floor beside his bed. An autopsy was performed, and the pathologist determined that Sean’s cause of death was "unascertained," meaning an inability to determine a specific cause. Following the VISP denial, Dan sought a second opinion from U.S. pathologist Dr. Ryan Cole, who determined that Sean’s cause of death was from spike protein from the Covid-19 vaccine in his adrenal glands. https://rumble.com/v23nfta-dr.-ryan-cole-this-is-an-absolute-scientific-fraud-of-the-most-astounding-k.html

    3.  #3 Pick of the week https://www.westernstandard.news/alberta/trans-mountain-pipeline-set-to-flow-on-may-1/53583

After years of delays, court challenges and public antipathy, the government-owned Trans Mountain expansion will come into service effective May 1, documents on its website show. Trans Mountain, which was bought by the federal government in 2018, is Canada's only oil outlet to the West Coast. The expansion will improve the line’s capacity by 590,000 barrels per day to a total of 890,000 barrels per day, improving access to export markets for Canadian crude by a corresponding amount. On Wednesday, the company said it had successfully completed the pipe pullback on a section between Hope and Chilliwack BC, representing one of the last completed segments of the 1,200-km line between Edmonton and the Lower Mainland.

What Our Logo Means

The logo for Manitoba Stronger Together incorporates elements that symbolize unity, community, and the strength of the bison.

  1. Bison Icon: Is a silhouette of a stylized representation of a bison, symbolizing strength, resilience, and unity. The bison is depicted in a side stance, representing progress and moving together as a community.

  2. The vertical stripes: represent that the movement includes all people from all walks of life, all beliefs and all political affiliations.

  3. The Horizontal Connecting Lines: across the bison represent the connections and interdependence of community members, emphasizing the concept of being stronger together.

  4. Blue Tones: The blue in the logo design represents growth, harmony, and the natural beauty of Manitoba's landscapes.

  5. Dynamic Font: We choose a strong and modern bold font for the organization's name "Manitoba Stronger Together" to convey a sense of confidence and forward-thinking.



 

Let us continue to unite, ignite our passions, and work towards building a stronger and united Manitoba. Together, we will shape the future we want and deserve.
