GREEN PARTY LEADER TO TOUR LOW CARBON BUILDINGS IN MONCTON

Fredericton – On Friday, January 13th, David Coon, leader of the Green Party of New Brunswick and MLA for Fredericton South will travel to Moncton to visit buildings that have been constructed to have small carbon footprints.

“Both the provincial and federal governments have new strategies to drive the transition to a low carbon economy by attacking energy waste and adopting renewable technologies. We have very talented people in New Brunswick working in these rapidly growing sectors of our economy. I’m familiar with the Fredericton-based companies, so I am excited to visit and tour some of the buildings that Moncton firms have designed and built.”

Coon will also tour the New Brunswick Community College’s Alternate Energy Systems Lab while in Moncton.

The tours will occur at the following times and locations:
– 10:30 – Residential, 9 Generation Ave
– 3:00 – NBCC Moncton Alternate Energy Systems Lab, 1234 Mountain Rd

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.
