Don't be surprised if you get a knock on the door on February 26. Because, according to an email sent to New Democrat campaign volunteers in Victoria-Hillside, that's when the party will be mounting a province-wide canvassing blitz to "talk to average British Columbians about why they should support the NDP in the upcoming election." The email also notes the local riding association will be using the British Columbia Government Employees' building on Douglas Street as their "organizing headquarters." Nice to know the New Democrats have somewhere they can call home. The following is a complete copy of that email.
