COPE Meeting: 11th March

March 6, 2018

A special COPE General Meeting will be held from 1:00pm, on Sunday 11th March at the Russian Hall, 600 Campbell Avenue.

The first half of the meeting will include speakers from Vancouver Green Party, One City party, Team Jean [Swanson], Vancouver District Labour Council, Vancouver Tenants’ Union, and the Chinatown Action Group.

Members will then be asked to consider the following:

  • Should COPE run a Mayoralty Candidate in this year’s municipal election?
  • What is the right number of candidates for COPE to nominate for Council, School Board and parks Board?
  • Should we endorse candidates not running with COPE?
  • What would need to be the basis of electoral cooperation with another electoral organization in terms of policy and platform?

In other words,  they will be fixing their position regarding a progressive unity slate to face the boisterously optimistic NPA in October’s municipal election.

Unfortunately, this meeting partially clashes with the GWAC AGM.  I hope to spend the first hour at COPE and then wander back to the Drive for the remainder of the GWAC.
