A new website is coming! In the meantime you can check out YCL updates on our blog at http://ycl-ljc.blogspot.com/
The old website will remain online with occasional updates until the new one is up and running.
3. Election time
Federal, Provincial and Civic elections are coming up over the next year and Communists in B.C. and around the country are getting ready. We have an opportunity to rid ourselves of three anti-worker governments: the Harper Tories, Campbell Liberals and Sullivan's NPA. If you are interested in running as a candidate or helping out with an election campaign please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

A public forum titled "Vote for People's Needs, not Corporate Greed!" is being held on Sunday, October 5th with Communist Party leader Miguel Figureoa. It will be at the Centre for Socialist Education, 706 Clark Dr. All YCLers are strongly encouraged to attend!
