Born in Tracadie New Brunswick, Alain Rousselle started his organic farm in 2010 when he moved south of the province to Saint-Maurice.  Along with his partner and mother of their 3 children,  Eva Patricia Rehak.

Alain is a pioneer in organics and Community Supported Agriculture in New Brunswick. Starting a farm from scratch and using no synthetic products and barely any fossil fuels to produce local-organic food, has been Alain's proudest achievement in his professional career. Effort and innovation have been Alain's way since starting his business and he plans to bring these two assets to the Green Party of New Brunswick and to the Legislative Assembly.

Alain has been on the Really Local Harvest Coop board for the past 6 years. He has been President, VP and is currently Secretary of the cooperative. Alain has also been a board member and the Youth Representative in the National Farmers Unions in New Brunswick and continues to be a member to this day.  In 2015, Alain and Eva won the Agricultural Alliance's New Entrant award in 2015.

Within the Green Party of New Brunswick Alain wants to offer the people of Kent-South an alternative voice to the traditional parties and begin moving towards real change within the beautiful province of 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.
