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.”

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.
