Media Advisory - Two entrepreneurs are seeking the nominations for Saint John Harbour

Fredericton - The nomination meeting for the Saint John Harbour riding will take place on September 27th from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Social Enterprise Hub located on 139 Prince Edward Street in Saint-John.  David Coon, leader of the Green Party and MLA for Fredericton South, will be present to support the nominees. 

Seeking nomination for Saint John Harbour are Wayne Dryer and Ryan Lanigan. 

Wayne is an entrepreneur and partner of Thera Ped. He is also a pastor of Germain St. United Baptist Church where he realized that the problems facing individuals in his community could only be resolved by addressing the social and political structural issues that created them. He became involved in poverty reduction strategies, social housing, the opposition to the LNG terminal and in advocating for an alternative to the P3 funding model for Saint John’s water treatment system. In recent years he has been a strong opponent of the unjust tax concessions enjoyed by some large corporations in New Brunswick which are contributing to the financial difficulties the province is experiencing.

Ryan has worked throughout the province of New Brunswick and Atlantic Canada in numerous industries as a business development representative. He has seen firsthand and worked with those who are the backbone of our economy, while also providing innovative solutions for these organizations and their facilities. He has partaken in the successes of productive environmental policies and as a result, he was able to experience the economic growth that comes with it.  Over the past decade, Ryan has been involved with the Saint John Trojans Rugby Football Club and the rugby community in New Brunswick.

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.

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.
