The party's leader, James Filippelli, stood unsuccessfully as a candidate for election to the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia in the riding of Port Moody-Westwood in the 2005 provincial election. He won 417 votes, or 1.65% of the total.
The party is dedicated to "creating a transparent and accountable government that minimizes waste by being small and effective".
- The provincial budget would be made public, so that the province's residents could see where their tax dollars were going.
- All government actions would be public, including how each MLA (Member of the Legislative Assembly) votes on each issue.
- More information wouild be provided to British Columbians, so that they can be more informed and interested in the government and be able to provide knowledgeable feedback about what they would like the government to do.
- All YPP MLAs would give at least 10% of their take-home salary back to their constituency, and would hold a meeting once every month open to all members of the constituency to inform them about what is happening in the legislature. These meetings will give the people of each constituency a chance to let each MLA know how they feel about what is happening in the legislature and with their tax dollars.
- All government actions and legislation should be sustainable. Everything the government does should be economically sustainable, environmentally sustainable, and socially sustainable.
- Two-way communication between the BC government and the people would be facilitated by having the Premier answer a 1-800 line one day a week for eight hours a day so that citizens could call to give the Premier feedback on the future of BC.
- Questionnaires with pre-paid postage would be made available at all government buildings so that British Columbians can inform government about the things they would like the government to do.
- All of the votes in the BC legislature would be "free votes", i.e., MLAs would not have to vote along party lines, so that MLAs would be able to better represent the people of their constituencies by voting the way the majority of their constituents would like them to vote.
