Fredericton South Riding Meeting

Fredericton South Registered District Association (RDA)
Monthly Meeting
November 10, 2015 - 7:30PM at the NB Green Party office (403 Regent Street, Suite 102)

On the agenda for the meeting are plans for a Green Party event on November 29 – screening of the film, This Changes Everything, based on Naomi Klein’s book by the same name.


The local riding association provides a vehicle for Green Party members and supporters to build awareness of and support for the Green vision for a sustainable province in our community. This activity between elections will translate into gains in elections. While the federal election was disappointing in that no new Greens were elected to Parliament, the total Green vote in New Brunswick went up, along with the Liberals, over the 2011 election results. While the Conservatives and NDP vote went down provincially, the Green vote increased by a whopping 40%, from just over 12,000 votes to over 20,000! This is certainly something to celebrate and to build on. In the Fredericton, the results were more impressive. The Greens went from 4.00% of the votes to 12.37%, more than tripling the share of the votes.

So come on out on November 10 and get involved. Change will happen if we work towards it together!

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.
