Yvon Durelle

Yvon Durelle is the son of a former boxer, forest ranger Yvon Durelle Sr. and Theresa Durelle. He was raised as a fisherman and farmer in Baie St. Anne, New Brunswick.
In 1973 Yvon moved to Bathurst to take a welding course which he completed. As well, he is licensed to teach welding. He traveled throughout Saint John (working on the Nuclear Reactor) and Canada working with his welding trade.
In 1975 Yvon married his wife Paulette and had one daughter, Erica who is a retired civil RCMP. They moved to Fredericton in 1975 where they still live. In 1978 he trained in Judo. In 1985 to 1987 he worked with the Mentally Challenged teaching them how to get into the workforce.
Throughout his career, he worked in the design of a 50ft. CC approved elevator.
In 1984 Yvon represented Canada in the sport of Professional Canoeing.
Yvon remained working in his welding trade as a Supervisor in Nackawic until he retired in 2006.
Yvon is against Fracking and Racism, as well he is tired of the hidden agendas of the former Governments. He feels the Greens as a new party will help shake things up and bring work to our local communities. We need to bring about change, and Yvon would like to be a part of this change.
After visiting Baie St. Anne recently he was informed by local fisherman of the challenges they face regarding the sighting of whales and porpuses near the Point Escuminac Warf. The threat of closure of the fishing in that area will greatly affect New Brunswick’s economy and put us in the same position as Newfoundland. For this reason, Yvon chose to run in Caraquet and fight to keep the fishermen of New Brunswick employed.

Our Principles

>Living within Our Ecological Means

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.

> Local Self-Reliance

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.

> Real Democracy

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

> Social Justice and Equality

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.

> Active Citizenship

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.

> A Culture of Peace and Respect

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.
