Biographical history

The Vancouver Area Council of the New Democratic Party was established in 1968 by the six provincial constituencies in Vancouver to involve the NDP directly in municipal politics. The VAC ran civic candidates in 1970, 1972, 1974. In the mid-1970s the VAC was, at times, in conflict with the Provincial Executive of the NDP as to civic election policy. The Vancouver Area Council was dissolved in 1976.
