VANCOUVER, B.C. – With the provincial election only ten months away, BC United under the leadership of Kevin Falcon had a record-breaking year of fundraising in 2023.
“After eight years of David Eby and the NDP, everything is worse,” said Kevin Falcon, Leader of BC United. “Whether it’s the cost of housing, sky-high gas prices, rampant crime or a crumbling healthcare system, British Columbians have had enough. Our record-breaking fundraising shows that voters increasingly view BC United as the only party that can defeat the NDP and fix B.C.”
BC United raised $500,000 more in 2023 than in 2022 – and nearly $1.2 million in the final three months of the year − the best quarter ever. This represents an increase of more than 20 per cent year over year. With contributions streaming in from around the province, BC United has the fastest growing donor base of any provincial party.
Meanwhile, the fundraising gap between BC United and the NDP is quickly closing. While BC United fundraising increases year over year, the NDP raised $50,000 less in the first nine months of 2023 than it did in the same period in 2022.
The BC Conservatives continue to struggle in raising money according to its third quarter Elections BC filing. They raised less than $150,000 in the first nine months of 2023 compared to $1,797,000 by BC United in that same period.
“While the NDP’s fundraising stagnates, BC United continues to crush its fundraising goals,” added Falcon. “With thousands of British Columbians contributing to our movement, only Kevin Falcon and BC United have the experience, vision, and resources to mount a winning campaign and defeat the NDP in October.”
