NDP supporters gathered their signs and waved to passersby on Harvey Avenue.
The goal was to raise awareness about platform issues leading up to the election, said the president of the NDP Kelowna/Lake Country riding Mike Nuyens.
NDP candidates have not been chosen yet for the Kelowna ridings.
They plan to select officials in the beginning of March.
So far in each riding, there has been one candidate, “which isn’t bad.” said the president of the Kelowna West riding Karen Abramsen.
Medicare Premiums are an issue the NDP is taking on, as well as making daycare affordable by lowering the cost to $10, said Abramsen.
The BCNDP wants to abolish the premiums and roll it into provincial taxes.
They also want to raise the minimum wage to $15.
“Affordability in the Kelowna area is a huge issue,” said Nuyens.
But, Abramsen said it isn’t likely the NDP will win the Kelowna ridings.
“This is not the socialist hotbed here. Let’s face it. It’s not that likely, but things could always change,” she said.
The Burma Shave was held, Feb. 18.
The next provincial election is scheduled for May 9.
