Paula Shaw lives in Juniper with her husband of 36 years. She is a mother of two children and a grandmother to three grandchildren. She helped with the lunch program at the elementary school in Juniper and has helped with outdoor activities for the children. She is also taking care of the lawns and cemetery at the Catholic Church. 

Paula is an active member of several different organizations. She became a member of the Miramichi Headwaters Salmon Federation with her husband. She is also a member of Council of Canadians and went to protests against fracking. She is a member of the Green Party, and has organizated meetings to promote the party. She is also an active member of Stop Spraying New Brunswick (SSNB). She organized meetings for SSNB and has worked the booths at Trade Shows to get the information out to the people in Moncton and Sussex. 

Her motivation for getting involved in politics in New Brunswick is the lack of jobs as well as the decline of health care, education, and infrastructure. She wants to be a strong voice for the people and to help bring back the young families that have moved away to find work.

Paula is looking forward to talking with the people and listening to their concerns. To have a better tomorrow for our children, our grandchildren, and their children. For many, many generations to come.

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.

> Self-Determination and Citizenship

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.
