A Few Kind Words
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
We have an exciting group of GPC leadership candidates. As leader of the Green Party of Nova Scotia (GPNS), I am looking forward to work with any of them very closely to advance our green agenda.
While I cannot endorse a single candidate, I would like to offer some words for Judy N. Green as she lives in Nova Scotia, was a running mate in the last federal election in our adjacent ridings, and is a member of the GPNS executive.
Judy has impressed us in Nova Scotia in many ways. I think what makes Judy most valuable for the GPC leadership now is that she is not a traditional politician but enshrines our values of cooperation and respect with a natural and professional working style that brings people together.
Judy has a very rich background as computer scientist, social entrepreneur, business consultant, and community volunteer. Judy found, in a very short time, a connection to Greens across Canada with whom I share a vision of grassroots democracy that empowers our EDAs. Judy would very much embody our vision of doing politics honestly, smart, and with decency.
I hope that we can demonstrate doing politics differently by showing my excitement about Judy’s leadership bid while not seeing this as a single endorsement. I am very much looking forward to the candidate debates which I hope will form a new chapter in Canadian politics.
