    Bad forest management and practices affect us

    That's why last fall Green Party leader David Coon, MLA for Fredericton South, pushed forward the principles of a new Forest Sustainability Act in the Legislative Assembly. These principles would benefit not just a few but all New Brunswickers, and would respect our treaty relationships with indigenous peoples.  

    A diverse forest can keep water clean and wildlife plentiful, create forest-related jobs and best cope with consequences from a changing climate. Current unscientific and unsustainable harvesting practices cannot continue, David says. We are massively subsidizing the forest industry, and getting little in return. 

    Greens want to:  

    • Restore the status of private woodlots as the primary source of wood supply to mills.

    • Replace the Crown Lands and Forests Act with a Crown Land and Forest Sustainability Act. The Act would create a new management structure that respects our treaty relationship with First Nations.

    • Work with forest-based communities, linking access to forest resources to local regions while protecting water, fish, and wildlife. 

    • Implement a plan to protect and restore Acadian forest biodiversity, ending logging in any remaining old growth forest. 

    • Provide for the creation of community Forest licenses, as has been done in BC, adjacent to and within municipalities and First nations.

    • Stop tax-payer funded glyphosate spraying on NB crown land forests ($2.2M/year), and a return to employing silviculture workers to do the thinning on soft-wood plantations.

    ARE YOU READY TO ELECT MORE GREEN MLAs?

    SUPPORT US THIS EARTH DAY!  

    The Green Party of New Brunswick is kicking off our spring fundraiser, running until April 22nd at 12:00 am.

    For Earth Day, we are having a Match Your Donation Event. Our biggest donors have offered to match donations of up to $5,000. So that would total $10,000. Please help us unlock 5K.

    Be part of the team! We have a solid team in place that's excited to work with David Coon in our Legislature. We have a real shot this year at electing more green MLAs. Please consider bringing on board a new donor. If each donor donated $25, we'd be well over our $5,000 target, which is crucial for this election year.

    What's more, your donation is tax deductible, yielding a tax credit of up to 75%—so every dollar you give has 4 times the impact

    Small but mighty, every dollar helps Green Party 


    ÊTES-VOUS PRÊTS À ÉLIRE PLUS DE DÉPUTÉS VERTS? 

    MONTRER VOTRE APPUIE POUR LE JOUR DE LA TERRE!

    Le Parti vert du Nouveau-Brunswick lance sa de campagne de levée de fonds qui prendra fin le 22 avril à 12:00 am.  

    Doublez la mise pour le Jour de la Terre. Nos plus grands donateurs ont offert de doubler la somme des donations reçu allant jusqu'à 5 000 $. Notre objectif est de 5 000 $. Donc, cela totaliserait un montant de 10 000 $. 

    Nous avons une équipe solide de candidats (es) qui seront en mesure de bien travailler avec David Coon dans notre Assemblée législative. Cette année, nous avons une réelle opportunité d'élire plus de députés verts. S'il vous plaît aidez nous à trouver un nouvel donateur. Si chacun de vous donne 25$, nous pouvons atteindre notre cible de 5 000$. De plus, recevez un reçu déductible d'impôts. Récupérez jusqu'à 75% de votre donation, chaque dollar à 4 fois plus d'impact et nous aidera à attenindre notre objectif. 

    Petit mais puissant, chaque dollar aide le Parti Vert!
