Madeleine Berrevoets seeks Green Party Nomination in Fredericton North

10 FEBRUARY 2014

Madeleine Berrevoets has announced that she will seek the Green Party nomination in the riding of Fredericton North. She is the coordinator of the St. Mary's Community garden and works as an automotive technician's apprentice.

Ms. Berrevoets lives in Devon on Fredericton's northside with her daughter Audrey.

 

Since early adulthood, Madeleine has used her skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to contribute to her community.  Soon after her daughter was born, Madeleine became a volunteer, working at a midwives' office, where she shared her passion for a strong and healthy start for infants by teaching parenting classes.

She is very involved in promoting community gardens and food sustainability.  In addition to coordinating the St. Mary's community garden, Madeleine is a community food mentor. It is her interest in local food security and environmental practices which sustain healthy communities that led her to seek the nomination as the candidate for the Green Party in Fredericton North.

"I live a very active life and am committed to working for a healthy and sustainable community, so pursuing the nomination for the Green Party in Fredericton North is a natural extension of the life I have chosen," said Ms. Berrevoets.

The nomination meeting will be held at the St. Mary's Cultural Centre, 150 Cliffe Street on Tuesday February 11th at 7 pm. Green Party Leader David Coon will be the special guest. All are welcome.

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.
