Green Party Leader Enthusiastic About By-Election and Candidate Andrew Clark

04 SEPTEMBER 2015

Fredericton – David Coon, MLA for Fredericton South and Leader of the Green Party of New Brunswick expressed his enthusiasm over the announcement for a provincial by-election in the Carleton riding on Monday, October 5th.

“I am excited to have Andrew Clark as our candidate,” said Coon. “Andrew gives voters in Carleton the opportunity to elect a good neighbour and active member of their community.”

The people of Carleton have been without representation in the Legislature since MLA David Alward stepped down on May 22.

“The people of Carleton County couldn’t ask for a better representative than Andrew,” said Coon. “Working together in the legislature, Andrew and I will be able to get a lot done for the people of Carleton and New Brunswick."

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.
