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.”
