Richmond NDP MLAs sworn into Legislature

VICTORIA – Three Richmond New Democrat MLAs were sworn into the Legislature virtually today following an historic election. Kelly Greene, Aman Singh, and Henry Yao joined the largest BC New Democrat caucus ever elected.

The 57 new BC NDP members were sworn in as 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.

“As an MLA for Richmond I am looking forward to getting down to work for the people in my community,” said Kelly Greene, MLA for Richmond-Steveston. “We are going through some challenging times, but our New Democrat team is prepared to tackle them head on.”

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.

Quotes:

Aman Singh, MLA for Richmond-Queensborough

“Challenging times like these require us all to pull together and take care of each other. As an MLA I am looking forward to working with this incredibly talented New Democrat team to make sure people in Richmond and across the province are healthy, safe, and able to thrive.”

Henry Yao, MLA for Richmond South Centre

“It’s an honour to be able to serve the people of Richmond and I am eager to get started on the important work of keeping our community and our province safe and healthy throughout the pandemic and into the future.”
