I was forwarded some really great information this morning from the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board that I'd love to share with you, my readers.
The article that struck me the most was in regards to the recent BC election that took place mid-May. Here are some portions of it, and here is the link to the full article.
Many familiar faces elected in the Valley
"Were you surprised and shocked to watch the BC Liberals secure a majority in the recent provincial election? At least a few Fraser Valley REALTORS® were. After all, most of the polls leading up to the election were predicting the New Democrats would be forming the next BC government. As well, it appeared to be a foregone conclusion that the BC Liberals would be losing seats across the province.
However, the BC Liberals actually gained a few seats in the election, especially in the Fraser Valley. Fortunately, most of the new MLAs are already familiar to the Board's Government Relations (GR) committee. They've met them at Board-sponsored all-candidates' meetings and at other past events."
Whether or not you like politics is somewhat irrelevant, politics touches every part of our lives and affects everyone, so I really hope you did your duty and voted. It is important to have your voice heard; a privilege, not a right, so don't misuse or take advantage of it.
