After stating last month that he was considering starting a new municipal political party in Vancouver, former Non-Partisan Association (NPA) mayoral candidate Hector Bremner announced today that idea has now come to fruition.
In a Facebook post, Bremner said that after a meeting last week with “about 50 core supporters,” his new party, the ‘Yes Vancouver Party’, has now established a founding board, constitution, and bylaws.
“These are the initial nine founding board members of our new Yes Vancouver Party,” he wrote.
“The board can appoint three more, but we left these three spots open to welcome people to join us after our official launch.”
Soon, he added, “the board will also be determining who will serve as President, Vice-President, and Secretary and other positions as it may determine.”
Bremner added that the party is expecting to launch its official website next week.
“This is just the beginning,” he added.
