David Eby is an award-winning human rights lawyer who was first elected in 2013 in Vancouver Point Grey when he defeated Christy Clark. He has a law degree from Dalhousie University, and an Honours English Degree from the University of Waterloo.
David has worked as a lawyer with the Federal Department of Justice, and with non-profit organizations Pivot Legal Society and the BC Civil Liberties Association. He has appeared at all levels of court in British Columbia.
This year, David was recognized for his work on the out of control real-estate market in Metro Vancouver by being listed as number four on Vancouver Magazine’s Power 50 list in 2016.
David, his wife, and their two year old son live in Wesbrook Village at UBC.
In the four years since his historic defeat of Premier Christy Clark in Vancouver Point Grey, David Eby has become a leading voice in British Columbia’s legislature.
“Eby in his rookie term in the legislature has emerged as one of the most effective critics in the House. He’s one of the busiest too.”
– Vaughn Palmer, Vancouver Sun, April 2016
David meets regularly with local business owners, community leaders, and neighbours from across the UBC neighbourhoods, the University Endowment Lands, Point Grey and Kits, to ensure community interests are well represented in the legislature through his legal training and effective advocacy.
Supported by people of all political backgrounds in the community for his integrity and commitment to fairness for all BC families, David has been described as “leading the charge” for affordable housing (Globe and Mail, March 2016), and as the NDP’s “pit bull” demanding accountability for an out-of-control government (Vancouver Sun, June 2016).
You may have seen David parked with his “mobile office” on a local street corner talking to neighbours, or on the news championing affordable housing for British Columbians, supporting rapid transit solutions to growing gridlock, insisting on high quality public education for our children, and calling for effective carbon pollution reduction policies to defend our climate.
David needs your help to win the next provincial election.
