LETTER: Green Party is a viable alternative

While we agree wholeheartedly that electing another Conservative government is the worst possible outcome, we do not agree with voting NDP.

Re: “Electing Wilks would be worst possible outcome”

While we agree wholeheartedly with Cameron Carter’s concern that electing David Wilks and another Conservative government is the worst possible outcome, we do not agree with his solution of voting NDP.

The Green Party is a viable alternative to any of the historic parties. Our leader, Elizabeth May, has shown herself to be an exemplary parliamentarian, winning Parliamentarian of the Year once and Hardest Working Parliamentarian twice, both awards voted by her fellow MPS.

The Green Party has a six part policy (greenparty.ca/en/vision-green) to address greening the economy, acting on climate change, restoring the environment, helping people and communities to thrive, re-establishing Canada as a leader in peace-making, and improving our democracy including a change to proportional representation.

Here in Kootenay-Columbia, we have an excellent candidate in Bill Green. Bill has worked for over 30 years as a consultant in economic development, an aquatic biologist, and manager of the Canadian Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fisheries Commission. He is known as a good listener and mentor, and is well respected by First Nations. Bill is passionate about creating a thriving economy in a healthy environment in Kootenay-Columbia.

Local residents can meet Bill at the Green Party booth at MarketFest Friday and at an open house at the Green Party office (306B Victoria St.) on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.

Take time to get to know our riding candidates, attend debates, follow the polls, and then decide closer to election day which candidate is best positioned to defeat Wilks.

Lisa Bramson and Julia Roberts, North Shore
