British Columbia Moderate Democratic Movement

The British Columbia Moderate Democratic Movement was a minor political party in the Province of British Columbia, Canada.

  • In 2004, it joined with the British Columbia Democratic Alliance, the Citizens Action Party and Link BC to form the British Columbia Democratic Coalition.
  • This coalition merged with the Reform Party of British Columbia and All Nations Party of British Columbia on January 15, 2005 to form a new, centrist political party, the Democratic Reform British Columbia.

Despite this, the BCMDM nominated two candidates in the 2005 BC election: James Solhiem won 123 votes (0.61% of the total) in the riding of Chilliwack-Sumas, and David Michael Anderson won 235 votes (1.20% of the total) in Chilliwack-Kent.

The party was de-registered by Elections BC in July 2008.

Famous quotes containing the words movement, democratic, british, columbia and/or moderate:

    What stunned me was the regular assertion that feminists were “anti-family.” . . . It was motherhood that got me into the movement in the first place. I became an activist after recognizing how excruciatingly personal the political was to me and my sons. It was the women’s movement that put self-esteem back into “just a housewife,” rescuing our intelligence from the junk pile of “instinct” and making it human, deliberate, powerful.
    Mary Kay Blakely (20th century)

    It shone on everyone, whether they had a contract or not. The most democratic thing I’d ever seen, that California sunshine.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    Quite frankly, if you bed people of belowstairs class, they go to the papers.
    Jane Clark, British millionaire politician’s wife. As quoted in Newsweek magazine, p. 15 (June 13, 1994)

    The young women, what can they not learn, what can they not achieve, with Columbia University annex thrown open to them? In this great outlook for women’s broader intellectual development I see the great sunburst of the future.
    M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)

    I am thankful for small mercies. I compared notes with one of my friends who expects everything of the universe, and is disappointed when anything is less than best, and I found that I begin at the other extreme, expecting nothing, and am always full of thanks for moderate goods.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
