John Sabine

John Sabine is 63 and was born in Perth-Andover where he grew up and completed high school before moving to Saint John having a rewarding 34 year career with the Saint John Police Force.

After retirement John started a small private investigation business which he continues to operate along with his sheep hobby farm in Passekeag.

John has always been an active community volunteer and in 2002 was awarded the Queens Golden Jubilee Medal for community service. John continues volunteering with not for profit organizations, presently vice president of the Hampton Curling Club, vice chairman of the SNB Forest Products Marketing Board, Secretary of the N.B. Federation of woodlot owners and treasurer of the Blue Knights N.B. II law enforcement motorcycle club.

After years of supporting  MLAs who had to vote the party line, whether it was best for New Brunswick or not and seeing the majority of their time spent on preparing to get re-elected and serving their corporate masters, John decided to get involved in politics. He found that the Green Party was the only true Democratic Party that allowed the elected representatives to vote and work for the people.  

To show John’s commitment to the community and being in politics for the right reasons he will donate half his MLS’s salary to charity and not for profit organizations.

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.
