VICTORIA – Josie Osborne was sworn into the Legislature virtually today, as the new BC New Democrat MLA for Mid Island-Pacific Rim following an historic election.
The 57 new BC NDP members were sworn in as part of part of British Columbia’s 42nd Parliament, all focused on supporting people through the COVID-19 pandemic and delivering on their commitments to British Columbians.
“I was proud to work alongside the BC NDP during my time as the Mayor of Tofino on the shared issues of transportation, housing and reconciliation. As MLA I will continue to champion these important issues and I’m honoured to represent people from across our beautiful region in the Legislature.”
The election of this New Democrat caucus features a number of notable milestones, including:
- First majority-women governing caucus in Canadian history
- Largest BC NDP caucus in history
- Highest number of IBPOC MLAs ever in a caucus in BC
British Columbians put their trust in New Democrats to lead the province’s pandemic recovery, and this diverse team will ensure no one gets left behind as we move forward.
