Green Party Announces Louise Comeau as candidate for Carleton-York

This morning in Mactaquac, Green Party Leader David Coon announced that Louise Comeau will be running for the Green Party in the upcoming election in the riding of Carleton-York.

“I am thrilled that Louise has chosen to run in Carleton-York,” said Coon. “She has many years of experience as a leading climate change expert and advisor to Elizabeth May and I know she will make a great MLA.”

Comeau is an environmental consultant specializing in climate change policy and communications. She also is an honorary research associate and instructor at the University of New Brunswick.

“I’m running for three reasons: First, because of my enormous respect for David as leader and as a person of character; second, to spark conversations in our community about the importance of Green values to a thriving rural life, and third because we need new provincial policies to stimulate the transition to a non-polluting economy,” said Comeau. “The last two years have shown that we need more Green MLAs in the Legislature and I’m excited to get to work on environmental solutions for rural New Brunswickers, including the residents of Carleton-York.”

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.
