VICTORIA – Nathan Cullen was sworn into the Legislature virtually today, as the new BC New Democrat MLA for Stikine following an historic election.

The 57 new BC NDP members were sworn in as part of part of British Columbia’s 42nd Parliament, all focused on supporting people through the COVID-19 pandemic and delivering on their commitments to British Columbians.

“I’m very excited to be taking on the new challenge of serving the people of Stikine in the Provincial Legislature,” said Cullen. “I look forward to everything our caucus will achieve together. As we face the challenges and embrace the opportunities ahead I am committed to working hard for the positive change that a strong, stable New Democrat government will achieve for people in the North, and all around B.C.”

The election of this New Democrat caucus features a number of notable milestones, including:

  • First majority-women governing caucus in Canadian history
  • Largest BC NDP caucus in history
  • Highest number of IBPOC MLAs ever in a caucus in BC

British Columbians put their trust in New Democrats to lead the province’s pandemic recovery, and this diverse team will ensure no one gets left behind as we move forward.
