It's Our Party, You Can Cry If You Want To, Liberals Tell VO

Election Day Blog by Brandi Cowen

12:27 p.m.

The BC Liberals may claim to be the people’s party, but that doesn’t jive with their move to exclude many people – including yours truly – from their main post-election celebration tonight.

Earlier today, I called the party’s provincial headquarters and asked for information about where and when the big shindig would be. Instead of getting an answer, I was told that only accredited media would be allowed in.

The communications staffer I spoke with, Chad Peterson, was very helpful and offered to put me in touch with other Liberal candidates in Vancouver. I could try to set something up with other candidates ahead of time, he said, but a number of them would probably end up at the main Liberal celebration tonight.

In contrast to the Liberals, the NDP and the Green Party have published details about their respective celebrations on their websites.

The main NDP party in Vancouver will be at the Burnaby Metrotown Hilton from 8:00pm on.

Vancouver’s major party with the Greens will be at Tinseltown’s Kentizen Restaurant from 7:00pm onwards.
