Values of the BCDP

Democrats stand for:


  • The Bill of Rights: free expression, freedom to dissent, personal freedom;
  • The right to privacy;
  • Fair business practices and labor relations;
  • Fair and progressive taxation;
  • Equal access to education, health care and jobs that pay a living wage;
  • Open, responsive government;
  • Environmental stewardship;
  • Good global citizenship.

We believe that government can and should help people live better lives.

We stand for government that is as good as the people.
