Sophie Vaillancourt

Sophie Vaillancourt lives in Lake Baker, one of the most beautiful lakes in New Brunswick. She is very involved in her community.  In 2016, she was elected city councilor for Lake Baker Village. Sophie is part of several committees including; the Lake Environment Committee (LEC), the Committee for the Health and Well-Being of Upper Madawaska (CSBEHM), the New Brunswick Feminist Reunion, the Drug Free Zone Committee, the Zone Committee without energy drink, the Acadia Lands and Forests Committee, the Lac Baker Frontier Park Committee and the Lac Baker Beautification Committee.

In terms of her academic background, Sophie is currently a student at the Université de Moncton Edmundston Campus. She is studying addiction, sociology, and philosophy. Sophie also holds certifications in computer science, accounting, and security. She worked as a security agent in Quebec for three years.

Sophie is a lover of nature and animals. She is against clear cutting without reforestation and against shale gas. She supports the right to clean air, clean water, and foods that are not full of chemicals. It promotes environmental rights and wants to enforce them.

She wants women to become more involved in politics because they have a strong will and determination. It is for the well-being of seniors and children. Public health and social services should also be a priority. With that, she hopes she can count on your support in the upcoming 2018 provincial election in Edmundston, Madawaska Center. She would like to work with you and for you.

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.
