British Columbia Moderate Democratic Movement
- In 2004, it joined with the British Columbia Democratic Alliance, the Citizens Action Party and Link BC to form the British Columbia Democratic Coalition.
- This coalition merged with the Reform Party of British Columbia and All Nations Party of British Columbia on January 15, 2005 to form a new, centrist political party, the Democratic Reform British Columbia.
Despite this, the BCMDM nominated two candidates in the 2005 BC election: James Solhiem won 123 votes (0.61% of the total) in the riding of Chilliwack-Sumas, and David Michael Anderson won 235 votes (1.20% of the total) in Chilliwack-Kent.
The party was de-registered by Elections BC in July 2008.
