5 Reasons to Attend Our NS NDP Convention 2016

May 30, 2016

Convention 2016 is fast approaching! Here are some reasons I’m hoping you will join us on June 25th


It’s democracy in action! NDP associations across our province have submitted policy resolutions to be debated and voted on at Convention 2016. It’s a chance for Party Members to help shape our Party’s positions on poverty, the environment, healthcare, economic development, education, gender equity, and much more. Plus, we’ll be electing Officers, Executive, and Council positions.

Election? Say what? Yes, a general election is just around the corner, and it’s never too early to start having conversations about how to strengthen our Party and our platform. Hear what people are doing locally and provincially to get ready, and feel the excitement as we move toward our next opportunity at the polls.

It’s a great networking opportunity. New Democrats from across Nova Scotia are attending Convention 2016; what better way to connect and share with like-minded people? Come get introduced to our NDP MLAs, Party and community activists, and our newly elected leader. Speaking of which…

We’ll hear from Gary. Have you heard our leader Gary Burrill speak lately? He is becoming known across our province for his barn-burning speeches, and getting folks all fired up about social, economic and environmental justice. Come hear for yourself what all the buzz is about!

Get inspired. There’s nothing like our Party convention to spark or re-ignite your passion for political action. It could be a conversation, a speech, a policy debate, or just the energy in the room. What really gets you engaged? We want you to bring it!

Get in on an incredible discounted Early Bird rate before it ends on June 17!
