The Board of Directors of the Douglas Coldwell Layton Foundation for Social Democracy is pleased to announce that BC Premier John Horgan will be the Keynote Speaker at its upcoming 50th Anniversary Dinner on November 15, 2022 in Ottawa.

First elected in 2005, John Horgan became leader of the BC NDP in 2014 and in 2017 became Premier. The BC NDP under John Horgan’s leadership was re-elected with a majority government in 2020. 

As Premier, John Horgan and the BC government have made life more affordable by providing lower-cost child care spaces and reducing fees, eliminating Medical Services Plan fees, freezing ferry fares, removing bridge tolls, and building more affordable places to live.

Premier Horgan will reflect on his time as Premier and will be making a very special announcement on behalf of the Foundation regarding its expansion plans for 2023 and beyond.
