Green Party leader launches 2020 election platform

Party Leader David Coon released the Green Party’s 2020 election platform today in Fredericton. 

“We have two priorities: to keep New Brunswickers safe and secure in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to chart a path to recovery from COVID-19 that puts the well-being of people, and communities at the heart of government decision-making, while protecting the natural environment on which we utterly depend,” said Coon.

The Green Party platform is divided into three themes:

  • Rebuilding Good Government and Public Services
  • Building the Green Economy
  • Building a Green Society

"Our platform outlines how the Greens will implement the necessary supports for people and small businesses to get through the pandemic now, so they can thrive when we come out the other end of this,” said Coon. “And it provides the details on how we will assure, we not only recover from the pandemic as a society and economy, but how we will flourish in the future.”

“A Green government will spend money where it matters, not where it doesn’t. The purpose of government is to service the public good,” said Coon. “We are offering New Brunswickers the real green deal for our province, where the government works for the well-being of all with compassion and respect.”
