Honest. Ethical. Caring. Leadership.
These are unprecedented times.
If the world is to avoid climate breakdown, scientists are warning we must move to a renewable energy economy - starting now and achieved by 2050. At the same time, as Canadians, we have a growing sense of insecurity about the future for ourselves and our children. Yet those in power seem disconnected from scientists’ warnings, unaware of our worries, and uninterested in our dreams.
The decisions to be made by the next government of Canada will shape our future as a nation. Will we hunker down to defend the status quo, leaving Canada behind as the world moves on? Or will we embrace the dual challenge of responding to the climate emergency and strengthening the social contract with all citizens?
The Green Party of Canada chooses the challenge.
To succeed, we need honest, ethical, compassionate leadership.
Leaders who are honest about what we are facing and the changes we need to make.
Leaders who are grounded in principles, not self-interest, and committed to the public good, not driven by power or greed.
Leaders who care about everyone’s ability to live a fulfilling life, including future generations.
Leaders who are prepared to make the decisions needed to transition to a sustainable, caring society.
The Green Party is offering Canadians this leadership. Elizabeth May has proven over and over that she has these qualities. Green candidates from sea to sea to sea are equally committed to ethical leadership and Green Party values:
This is not a one-issue platform. It sets out a deep commitment and action plan to genuine truth, justice and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. The platform speaks to our immediate anxieties about affordability – in housing, prescription drugs and education. It outlines how Canada can function better as a federation through greater cooperation. But underscoring it all is a call to be inspired, to answer the call of species without voices, of children without votes.
With your help, we can be the heroes in our own story.
