Policy working Group Meeting - March 2nd 2019 in New Maryland

A Special Meeting of Members (SMM) will be held for policy resolutions on Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 10am to 4pm at the Community Centre in New Maryland (754 New Maryland Hwy, New Maryland, NB E3C 2A9). All policy resolutions that have been developed for the 2019 Policy Manual will be put to the vote at this special meeting - the Annual Convention in April has a full agenda and will not include voting on policy resolutions.

If you are thinking about joining us on March 2, or have the intention to, please register your interest here: survey for March 2nd

Knowing how many are considering attending will help us plan. On the survey you can also indicate if you need or can share a ride.

There is no cost to register your interest however a $20 fee will be collected at the door to cover facility and translation costs. A potluck lunch will be shared. 

Thank you!

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.
