Laura Sanderson

Laura Sanderson is a manager with Starbucks Coffee Canada and has been involved in collaborative-leadership roles in non-for-profits as well. She has participated in grassroots campaigns to raise awareness and action on poverty, economy, and environmental issues. Laura ran for the Green Party of Canada during the 2015 Federal Election.

Laura spent her early 20s living in Winnipeg, Manitoba where she witnessed economic and social divides as part of a standard culture. In her mid-20s she moved to Toronto, where she got to experience multiculturalism that was thriving. In Toronto, she met her husband - who was from Moncton - and they moved back to the Maritimes in 2016.

Laura, her husband Louis Vautour, and their dog Bailey live in the Jones Lake area in the Moncton South riding where she is a candidate for the Green Party of New Brunswick

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.
