Byron John Connors is 52 years old and was raised in Upper Blackville, New Brunswick, where he currently resides. He is the father of six children and a grandfather to four. He started working in the woods at a very young age and then went on to start his own business. He is an outdoorsman, who enjoys fishing and hunting. He makes his living in the forest and on the river. He was actively involved in minor hockey and baseball for several years.

Byron believes in hard work and has built his company from a young age, dedicating hours upon hours, days and nights to help support his family. He provided employment for many people in our rural community, allowing them to stay in their homes with their families and not have to leave our community to find work elsewhere. He has always been passionate about forestry and the environment and is an active member of his community, who attends regular meetings when there is an issue to be discussed in the local areas. He has his own farm in which he raises horses, cows, and chickens, and works endlessly.

He believes in working hard for what you have and he strongly believes that we need to take charge of our future and regrow our forestry as well as provide jobs and opportunities for people not only in cities but in rural communities as well.  Living in a rural community his whole life has made Byron passionate about the welfare and employment of those around him. He has seen many people lose their jobs due to the current mismanagement of our resources.

Byron is passionate about our land and economy and has a strong belief that we are in desperate need of a significant change. He believes we all have a right to healthy air, safe water, and a wholesome food supply, and that everybody has a right to know when these resources are being threatened, whether you live in a rural area, city or whether you are from a wealthy family or poor. Everyone has a right to partake in the decisions that could possibly do harm to our people and our ecosystems.

New Brunswick needs a change.

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.
