Scope and content
Records in this subseries relate to the BC NDP’s activities in support of the 2004 Canadian federal election.
The 38th Canadian federal election was held on June 28, 2004, following the dissolution of the previous House of Commons on May 23rd, 2004 by Governor General Adrienne Clarkson, on the advice of Liberal Prime Minister Paul Martin. The federal New Democratic Party, now under the leadership of Jack Layton, ran a full slate of 308 candidates, and managed to secure 19 seats, up from the 14 seats held at the time of dissolution, with 5 of these seats secured in British Columbia. The next federal election was not held until 2006.
Records in this subseries have been made by two different individual creators. Files 424-10 to 424-21 have been created by David Bieber, Director of Communications. Files 425-01 to 425-05 have been created by Russ Neely, Director of Organization.
Files include correspondence, polls, reports, strategy and messaging documents, reports, notes, meeting minutes and agendas, public communications, and other related materials.
Immediate source of acquisition
Files in this subseries were received together in a single box, suggesting they had been set aside in close proximity following the election. Because the rest of the records of the Director of Organization were received as a distinct group (whereas these records seemed to be grouped by activity), the records found here have been kept together as a subseries. File order represents the order received.
