Libby receives Solidarity Award

Vancouver- NDP MP Libby Davies (Vancouver East) was awarded the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) Solidarity Award on Saturday night at the Tri-annual NUPGE Convention in Vancouver.

Presented by the newly re-elected NUPGE president James Clancy, the award was given to Libby for her outstanding work for human rights for housing and homelessness.

The award recognizes Davies’s bill for a national housing strategy, Bill C-304. The bill is currently before the House of Commons and could have a final vote as early as the fall.
