A STATEMENT FROM THE GREEN PARTY LEADER REGARDING RESIGNATION OF NDP LEADER

Fredericton – David Coon, Leader of the Green Party of New Brunswick and MLA for Fredericton South issued the following statement in recognition of the resignation of Dominic Cardy, leader of the New Brunswick NDP:

“I want to wish Dominic Cardy the very best, following his resignation as the leader of the New Brunswick NDP. Our archaic first-past-the-post electoral system continues to leave too much political talent on the sidelines, all too often betraying voters who are looking for an alternative to a Legislature overwhelmingly dominated by the two old parties. I have no doubt that Dominic will continue to pursue his convictions, in the articulate and intelligent manner to which New Brunswickers have become accustomed – in whatever future endeavor he chooses.”

Our Principles

> Non-Violence

A culture of cooperation, caring and understanding is essential to ending violence in our society. Rehabilitation rather than vengeance must be the goal of our justice system.

We must have the opportunity and the responsibility as citizens to contribute to the common good, which requires that all have the capacity to participate in community life.

> Social Justice and Equality

Everyone must have equal access to the necessities of life and be treated with dignity and respect. Treaties with First Nations must be honoured.

> Participatory Democracy

We must be able to participate in decisions that affect our lives and be guaranteed that our votes are reflected in the make-up of the Legislative Assembly.

> Local Self-Reliance

Our communities should be in control of their own destinies, supported by strong local economies, and sustained by local sources of food and renewable energy.

> Living within Our Ecological Means

We must live within the ecological limits of the Earth, while meeting our needs without threatening our children's future or the survival of other species.
