James (Junior) Denny


James Denny is an indigenous man from the Natoaganeg (Eel Ground) First Nation near Miramichi New Brunswick. Eel Ground is a small community with an approximate population of 1000 members.

Mr. Denny has had experience within the political arena although exclusively at the grassroots/community level having served as an elected representative for that community. This entrance into provincial politics is a new and exciting challenge for Mr. Denny and one that he hopes will add valuable experience to his list of accomplishments.

Mr. Denny has held a number of administrative positions over the years including work in the areas of Economic and Human Resource Development, Program Development and Management and Office Management. These experiences have made Mr. Denny a very well rounded and knowledgeable individual who has a passion for helping others to achieve their goals and desires.

Mr. Denny is currently employed with Mi’gmawe’l Tplu’taqnn Incorporated (MTI) as a community liaison. MTI is a political organization consisting of Mi’kmaq chiefs representing all of the Mi’kmaq bands in New Brunswick. This organization is the lead on matters pertaining to all aspects of politics and community development for each of the member bands.

Outside of Mr. Denny’s professional life he enjoys being active in and around the local service district. He has been the past president of the local Toastmasters International club and is also active in the Northumberland Lodge No. 17 F&AM, a member of the Moncton Valley Scottish Rite and Shriners International. All of these organizations serve to help individuals from all walks of life to improve and strengthen themselves.


Our Principles

>Living within Our Ecological Means

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.

> Local Self-Reliance

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.

> Real Democracy

Everyone must have equal access to the necessities of life and be treated with dignity and respect. Treaties with First Nations must be honoured.

> Social Justice and Equality

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.

> Active Citizenship

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.

> A Culture of Peace and Respect

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.
