Beresford – The Green Party of New Brunswick’s annual convention drew a large and diverse crowd from all over New Brunswick to Beresford this weekend. The energy in the convention room at Danny’s Inn was palpable, as members gathered to hear about the work of the Green Caucus in Legislature, build their skills for growing the party in their ridings, and to elect new members to the Green Party’s governing council.
‘’It was exciting to see so many new faces in the crowd,’’ said Green Party leader David Coon. ‘’Our party’s family-centred and community-focussed approach to making life better for everyone in New Brunswick, is clearly giving people hope that green politics is the way forward. And they know we are the real green deal when it comes doing our part to reduce New Brunswick’s impact on the living world and the climate’’, said Coon.
At the convention, the membership elected four new members to the Executive of their government council including retired software developer, Tom McLean as President, former MLA and Deputy Speaker, Carolle de Ste. Croix as francophone Vice-President.
The Green Party’s policy convention was held in early March. The updated policy manual will be available in May.
