Ensuring government, and companies, work for people
David’s background in equality and justice means that he is keenly focussed on fairness. In 2017 he introduced a law banning union and corporate donations to political parties, and limiting individual political donations, getting the big money out of politics and ensuring politicians work for people, not big money donors. David also expanded protections for whistleblowers in the public sector, so that concerned public servants can safely share information about corruption, waste, or mismanagement without being punished. David delivered BC’s first Anti-SLAPP law, designed to safeguard freedom of expression and protect advocates, activists and journalists from being targeted with frivolous lawsuits. David also led a national class action lawsuit, joined in by every province and territory, against pharmaceutical companies that were alleged to have used deceptive advertising to sell opioids while downplaying addiction risks, recently resulting in a first-of-its-kind $150 million settlement with Purdue Pharma.
David’s support has always come from small, individual donors, like you. Your donation will ensure Team Eby has the resources it needs to reach British Columbians across the province with a positive vision about our shared future.
