1986 provincial election records

Prior to the election, the BC New Democratic Party held 22 seats in the Legislature; under the leadership of Bob Skelly, the Party fielded a full 69 candidates for the 1986 general election, emerging yet again with 22 seats, and approximately 42.6% of the popular vote. The incumbent Social Credit party, now under the leadership of Bill Vander Zalm, took the remaining 47 seats and returned to power. The next general election in British Columbia was not held until 1991.

Records in this subseries include candidate biographical statements and photographs, campaign literature and public communications, correspondence, drafts, memos, media and campaign strategy documents, committee reports and minutes, and other related materials. These records appear to have been predominantly created by Gerry Scott, Provincial secretary, or in some cases, Soren Bech, Director of Communications.

1988 federal election records

These records relate to Provincial NDP activities in support of the November 21, 1988 Federal Election. During this election, the Federal NDP party secured 43 seats, 19 of which were in British Columbia. Records in this subseries appear to have been created by the Provincial Secretary, Hans Brown, and were kept at the central office of the NDP.

Records in this subseries include party strategic documents such as the Spring Campaign and Fall Campaigns for membership, fundraising, and political support; committee minutes and communications such as the Revenue Sharing Task Force and the Revenue Generating Task Force; correspondence and public communications; surveys; notes and drafts; and other related materials.

1990 Accession subseries

All drawings pertain to building projects completed at UBC, with only a couple of exceptions at the end of this section. Most of the drawings in this accession are working drawings, with some preliminary and perspective drawings appearing in the files. In addition, there are some working drawings for several unbuilt UBC projects. The same building sub-contractors were used consistently throughout TBP&P's corporate life: D.W. Thomson, Mechanical Engineering; Simpson & MacGregor, Electrical Engineering; O. Safir, Structural engineering. In the 1970s, this group became the "Partners" when the corporate title changed for the last time [see: Administrative History in the full file list]. Some projects between 1923 and 1974 were commissioned by the federal or provincial government rather than the university.

1991 provincial election records

British Columbia's 35th General Election was held on October 17th, 1991. Prior to the election the NDP held 22 seats in the legislature, and they emerged from the 1991 election with 51, taking power with Mike Harcourt as the newly elected Premier of British Columbia. Though the Social Credit party had previously been in power since 1975, a series of scandals and shifts in social policy negatively affected the party's public standing, culminating in the conflict of interest scandal surrounding Premier Bill Vander Zalm's sale of his Fantasy Gardens flower garden and theme park, which led to his resignation as premier. These events opened a window of opportunity for the BC ND, who campaigned strongly on the theme of "It's time for a change." The next general election was not held in British Columbia until 1996.

Records in this series have been created by two distinct creators:

  • Files 400-02 to 404-11 created by Hans Brown, Provincial Secretary
  • Files 404-12 to 407-03 created by Ron Johnson, Director of Communications
    Records include correspondence, drafts, notes, campaign literature and public communications, media clippings, budgetary documents, candidate biographies, strategy documents, minutes and agendas, polls, and other related materials.

1993 federal election records

Records in this series relate to the British Columbia NDP's activities in support of the 1993 federal election.

The 35th Canadian federal general election was held on October 25, 1993. During this time, the BC NDP Central Office became an organizing hub for regional campaigns, with BC candidates running for 32 federal seats in the election. However, the Federal NDP party, under the leadership of Audrey McLaughlin, fared poorly in the 1993 election, securing only 9 seats. This was reflected in British Columbia, where all but two of the Federal NDP MP's lost their seats. The next federal election did not occur until 1997.

Records in this series have been predominantly created by Jim Kirk, Director of Communications (files 407-04 to 408-10). Files 408-11 to 409-05 were located in the Executive Secretary's office at the time of appraisal, though their creator is uncertain; file 409-05 appears to have been created by Sherry Hyde, Director of Administration.

Records include correspondence, memos, policy and strategy documents, public communications, campaign advertisements and media scripts, clippings, pamphlets, polls, minutes, meeting agendas, and other related materials.

1996 provincial election

Records in this subseries relate to the BC NDP's activities leading up to and following the 1996 Provincial General Election. The 36th Provincial General Election was called on April 30, 1996, and held on May 28, 1996. The BC NDP, under the leadership of Glen Clark, ran a full 75 candidates in the election. Heading into the election the NDP held a 51 seat majority, but Mike Harcourt's resignation surrounding the "Bingogate Scandal" (see: the "Nanaimo Commonwealth Holding Society" subseries in the "Legal proceedings, investigations, and inquiries" series of this fonds) affected the party's public perception, at a time when the BC Liberal party was gaining popularity. Ultimately, the BC NDP secured a narrow majority government, with 39 seats, while the Liberals, previously holding only 17 seats, retained the Official Opposition with 33 seats.

Records in this subseries have been created by the following individuals:

  • Files 409-06 to 410-16, the majority of the files in this subseries, have been created by Jim Kirk, Director of Communications
  • File 410-17 appears to have been created by Hans Brown, former Provincial Secretary and Campaign Manager for the 1996 election
  • Files 410-18 to 411-04 created by Sherry Hyde, Director of Administration
  • File 411-05 appears to have been created by Brian Gardiner, Provincial Secretary

Files include polls, correspondence, memos, drafts and notes, public communications, clippings, financial documents, and other materials related to the 1996 election. File 411-04 contains correspondence around the implementation of recent changes to the Election Act, as well as challenges to the revised Election Act. File 411-05 includes court documents and legal correspondence about a judicial recount in the Okanagan-Boundary electoral district following the election.

1997 federal election records

Records in this series relate to provincial NDP activities in support of the 1997 Federal Election, called on April 26, 1997, and held on June 2, 1997. The federal NDP, under the leadership of Alexa McDonough, managed to regain official party status (lost after securing only 9 seats in the 1993 federal election) by winning 21 seats. The next federal election was not held until 2000.

In British Columbia, former Provincial Secretary Gerry Scott was engaged as the BC Campaign Manager, and current Provincial Secretary Brian Gardiner joined the Communications Working Group of the Elections Planning Committee (EPC). These records appear to have been created by Brian Gardiner, Provincial Secretary, and include public communications, memoranda, messaging documents, newsletters, candidate biographies, correspondence, reports, polls, and other related materials.

2000 federal election records

Records in this series relate to the British Columbia NDP's activities in support of the 2000 federal election.

Held on November 27, 2000, the 37th general election was called early by Liberal Party Prime Minister Jean Chretien. The federal NDP, under the leadership of Alexa McDonough, succeeded in securing 13 seats in Parliament, a loss of 8 seats from the previous election in 1997. The BC NDP also did not fare well in the federal election, possibly due to the resignation of Premier Glen Clark in August of 1999 surrounding allegations that he had accepted favours in return for approving a casino application. The next federal election was not held until 2004.

Records in this series have been made by multiple creators. Files 412-01 to 412-04 were created by Ed Lavalle, Provincial Secretary. The creator of files 412-05 to 412-15 is uncertain, but appear to be the Director of Communications. Similarly, the creator of files 412-16 to 412-21 is uncertain, but appears to be Ron Stipp, Director of Organization.

Files include correspondence, memos, public communications, polls, candidate biographies, clippings, draft advertisements and promotional materials, agendas and minutes, and other related materials.

2001 provincial election records

Records in this subseries relate to BC NDP activity surrounding the 37th provincial general election in BC, held on May 16, 2001. Though the Party ran a full slate of 79 candidates in the 2001 election, the BC NDP’s public perception was still suffering as a result of the media-dubbed “Bingogate scandal” which had led to Glen Clark’s resignation as Premier in August of 1999. Under the leadership of Ujjal Dosanjh, the former Attorney General of BC who had successfully won the NDP leadership race in February of 2000, the New Democratic Party succeeded in retaining only 2 of their previous 39 seats in the provincial legislature, those of incumbents Joy McPhail (Vancouver-Hastings) and Jenny Kwan (Vancouver-Mount Pleasant). The BC Liberals, under the leadership of former Vancouver mayor Gordon Campbell, won the remaining 77 seats. The next provincial election was not held until 2005.

The records in this series were received by RBSC in one box; though their contents suggest multiple individual creators, it is difficult to determine at a file-by-file level which files were created by whom. Based on an examination of the contents of the files and notes supplied by the appraising archivist, the likely creators of these files are Ed Lavalle, Provincial Secretary and Acting Campaign Manager for the 2001 election, and either the Director of Communications or David Bieber, Communications Officer for the BC NDP.

Materials in this subseries include correspondence, polls, candidate nomination materials, public communications, campaign literature, media clippings, notes, meeting agendas and minutes, candidate biographies and photographs, financial documents, and other related materials. Certain items not directly related to the election were intermingled with loose materials discovered in the box; they have been left in their received order and can be found in file 415-01.

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.
