Welcome to the ideas section of my website!
This page will be updated as the campaign progresses and I plan to meet and exchange ideas with thousands of Green Party supporters thought this campaign!
I am proposing these ideas because I think that the Green Party of Canada needs to take a step forward by embracing the youth lead climate movement, the Green New Deal and by championing Social Justice, Anti Racism, Feminism and ecosocialism.
Although some will say that these ideas are “radical”, that they will cost too much or are simply unrealistic the reality is that we simply cannot afford to put off the fight against climate change. We need to completely revolutionize the way we consume, the way we travel and the way we measure social economic progress. The time to act for our environment is now. That is why I am proposing this bold set of policies that if implemented will transform Canada into a model for sustainability around the wold. It will enable us to be on the forefront of this tectonic shift in environmental practices around the world.
There is an increasing consensus in the environmental movement that the struggles for environmental protection and social justice are inharently linked and that we should approach these issues from an intersectional perspective. Although some will say that the Green Party of Canada should remain a one issue party the reality is that if we hope to form government one day people are going to want to know where we stand on all of the issues. If we want to succeed we will have to present the electorate with a comprehensive vision for the future of the country by doing so we can hope to earn the trust of many people. We cannot tell women, minorities, seniors and families that their struggles will have to wait while we work on the climate crisis. All of these struggles must move forward together and as a party we have to be cristal clear as to where we stand and how we will govern if elected.
