Statement from Mayor Robertson on the Provincial Election

May 14, 2013 | Engaged City

"My congratulations to Premier Christy Clark on her successful re-election campaign and the formation of a new government, with which I look forward to continuing a positive working relationship. As Mayor, I'm committed to working with the Premier on building the partnerships we need to deliver on Vancouver’s priorities, including strengthening our local economy, ending street homelessness, making housing more affordable, and investing in urgently-needed transit improvements.

“I would also like to thank Adrian Dix for his ongoing service and contributions to British Columbia and our democratic process. Vancouver owes its gratitude to candidates of all backgrounds for advancing their ideas on how best to keep improving our great city and province.”

“On behalf of City Council, I would also like to offer the City’s congratulations to all of Vancouver’s 11 elected or re-elected Members of the Legislative Assembly on their successful campaigns, and I look forward to working with them all as they strive to provide the best possible representation for Vancouver.”
