Gary Mason’s Friday piece in the Globe and Mail has some recommendations for the BC NDP to improve its effectiveness.

When you review the 7 main points in the Think Forward BC NDP consensus document, there is some strong convergence. Read them here, then review some of Mason’s points:

1. Talk about the economy more

2. Pick core economic areas and own them

6. Engage young voters

7. Improve the relationship with working people and unions

10. Engage the disaffected

And what is Think Forward BC NDP all about? Facilitating dialogue to engage members, supporters and the progressive social movement in BC. So, let Think Forward and Mason’s piece be part of the fodder for dialogue.
