    Thank you to everyone for all your support and encouragement over the last number of months. I can't begin to tell you how deeply I appreciate it. I didn't make this decision lightly, but did so because I believe it's in the best interests of uniting our party and providing our province with a progressive alternative to the BC Liberals. So while today marks the end of my campaign, it begins our campaign to elect BC NDP government in 2017 with John Horgan as Premier, and I'm proud to stand as a member of the team. Team Horgan

    Great response from folks in Maple Ridge. Signing up lots of new BC NDP members who are excited about our campaign. They believe, like I do, that BC is best together!

    NDP leadership candidate Mike Farnworth said less protection for farmland will leave the province in a “precarious” situation. “People across the province are embracing locally grown food, and B.C. is uniquely positioned to meet that need,” he said. “But instead of capitalizing on the asset we have in protected farmland, the BC Liberals are determined to destroy it.”

    Mike Farnworth says the issue is concerning because people get stuck in a cycle of poverty. “The way it is promoted is that is is an easy way to get quick cash, when in fact it is a very expensive way to get cash and it targets people who are often in reduced economic circumstances,” he argues.

    "Mike knows that we need mining, and he knows he can have an environmentally responsible mining industry with a social license to operate. Our traditional resource sector cannot operate alone if we are to ensure a healthy, resilient economy. That’s why Mike supports a diverse economy that includes things like tourism, high tech, agriculture and the creative Sector. Mike knows that Rural and Urban BC have different needs but the health of both the rural economy and the health of the urban economy are interdependent." Lana Popham - MLA, Saanich South

    "Mike and I share a love for growing our own food and we know that without a strong agricultural sector we will be leaving ourselves vulnerable to the problems we will see as climate change affects food-growing regions around the world. We, as New Democrats, brought in this policy 40 years ago, but we know it’s not just a New Democrat value. Mike knows that the Agricultural Land Reserve is valued by people of every political stripe, all across this province, and we will only save what is left by standing together. We will only save what is left, by winning the next election. And Mike Farnworth can do just that." Lana Popham, MLA Saanich South

    Statement from Mike Farnworth on changes to the ALR March 28, 2014 Victoria, BC – BC NDP leadership candidate Mike Farnworth has released the following statement on Bill 24, the Agricultural Land Commission Amendment Act: "I believe in the tremendous value of the Agricultural Land Reserve, and I will do everything in my power to stand up for the protection of the land that grows our food. Efforts by government, evidenced yesterday by the tabling of Bill 24, the Agricultural Land Commission Amendment Act, to lessen that protection will leave British Columbia in a very precarious position. Without farmland, how will we ensure that we can feed ourselves? People across the province are embracing locally grown food, and BC is uniquely positioned to meet that need. But instead of capitalizing on the asset we have in protected farmland, the BC Liberals are determined to destroy it. This legislation is just one more example of why the BC NDP must choose a leader that can win the next election. If we fail to win in 2017, there will be very little farmland left for us to save."

    "Mike was one of the initiators in the Fair Share Agreement in the Northeast, so he knows that we have to develop resources responsibly but we also have to ensure that the communities and the people living nearby those resources benefit the most from them"

    Excited to have the support of MLAs Lana Popham and Doug Donaldson. Lana is a passionate champion of BC's natural environment and agriculture, and Doug is a strong advocate for rural and northern B.C. Together, we are building a BC NDP that is in tune with folks in every part of our province, and can win an election!

    Public opinion research that measured voter appeal of various potential NDP leadership candidates in the key must-win seats in suburban and interior riding showed Farnworth is the most popular with voters.

    “You know that’s what the Liberals are going to do and you have to fight fire with fire,” Farnworth said. “If I’m leader, we will never fight an election campaign with one hand tied behind our backs.”
