Green Leader tables bill to amend the Crown Lands and Forests Act

Fredericton – On November 20, 2019 Green Party Leader David Coon tabled a bill to amend the Crown Lands and Forests Act to ensure that New Brunswick mills purchase more wood from private woodlots and that the private woodlot owners are fairly compensated for the wood they produce. This bill also bans the spraying of herbicides on Crown forests.

“Successive governments have failed to implement the Auditor General’s 2015 recommendations to ensure private woodlot owners have fair access to the wood market as required by the Crown Lands and Forests Act; this bill will remedy that by requiring private wood to be purchased through the wood marketing boards and ensuring that private wood makes up a third of the wood consumed by the mills,” says David Coon.

1 year !

 

It is said that good things come in threes. We couldn’t agree more. 

Today, September 24th, 2019 marks the one-year anniversary of voters sending THREE Green Party of New Brunswick candidates to the Legislature. What a huge leap forward for our party and our province.

We want to thank everyone who voted Green, who put up a lawn sign, donated or volunteered for last year’s campaigns. If you sent us good energy or spoke favourably about a Green candidate with a neighbour or friend, it was all deeply felt.  Your actions resonated—and forever changed—this province!

David, Megan, and Kevin want to thank you personally, and share with your some of the highlights from this past year with this short video.  

Our Green MLAs are working for you, for the climate and our collective future. Thank you for all your support our first year – it certainly has been exhilarating.

Sincerely,

Marco Morency,
Executive Director

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.
