VICTORIA – Nicholas Simons was sworn into the Legislature virtually today, as the newly re-elected BC New Democrat MLA for Powell River-Sunshine Coast 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 gratified that people in Powell River-Sunshine Coast have asked me to serve as their representative once again,” said Simons. “I’m pleased to be able to return to the Legislature and take my seat alongside colleagues old and new, and continue our work to make this province a better place.”

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.
