Partisan Political Action in British Columbia
Welcome to your launching pad for partisan political action in British Columbia! Although ARPA Canada as an organization is officially non-partisan, we encourage you to be active within political parties. Being an active member of a political party allows you to vote in leadership races, nomination contests, and policy conventions. Because far fewer people (are eligible to) vote in these forums, your vote carries far greater weight in these partisan activities than a general election. To better understand why partisan political activity is so important, read our blog post, The Importance of Partisan Political Activity.
