Second Deputy Leader of Green Party of Canada

2 12 2014

Green Party of Canada

Today, I am thrilled to share some exciting news. The Green Party is welcoming a second Deputy Leader to the team!

Daniel Green is a pioneer in environmental research and activism. He has been a leader in the movement to protect our land and water for more than 30 years.

I have known Daniel for decades — through his time at the helm of the Société pour Vaincre la Pollution in his home province of Quebec and his work as a scientific advisor to organizations like the Sierra Club of Canada.

Daniel understands that all citizens have the right to breathe clean air and drink unpolluted water and he has devoted his life to defending these rights.

He has made a profound difference on the issue of environmental contamination — successfully taking legal actions before the Supreme Court of Canada. Daniel was instrumental in causing the corporations involved in the tragedy at Lac-Mégantic to decontaminate the site in 2013 and 2014.

I am deeply grateful to Daniel for his commitment to Green values. He will join Bruce Hyer as our second Deputy Leader.

Take a moment now to join Bruce and I in welcoming Daniel to the Green Party:

Shaun, with incredible team members like Daniel being recruited across the country, I know we are headed for a breakthrough in next year’s election.

Thanks for being with us during this exciting time,


Elizabeth May, O.C.
MP, Saanich-Gulf Islands
Leader, Green Party of Canada

Liz May Needs Support for Her Green 2015 Campaign

Greens have made history in New Brunswick!

Last night, Green Party of New Brunswick Leader David Coon was elected as the province’s first ever Green MLA.

David won his seat in the riding of Fredericton South, defeating Conservative incumbent Craig Leonard, the province’s pro-fracking Minister of Energy.

With David’s historic win, we now have Green MLAs on both coasts and Green MPs in Ottawa.

Shaun, our party’s growth is now beyond a doubt — this election showed that voting Green is not a protest vote, voting Green is a vote for something you want.

We’ve entered an era of electing Greens, but if we are to continue our success in next years election I will need your support.

Please make a contribution to our 2015 election fund today to mark this historic victory.

Thank you for all of your support Shaun,


Elizabeth May O.C.
MP, Saanich-Gulf Islands
Leader, Green Party of Canada

Dear Members and Supporters,

We are on the path to victory — the race in Fredericton South is very close and all over New Brunswick, our candidates and volunteers have put in a tremendous effort.

A strong, meaningful push in the last ten days of our 2014 election campaign will mean all the difference in the world.

Imagine that, as a result of our collective effort, we succeed in winning the first seat ever for a Green Party candidate in Eastern Canada.

We need to send a clear, direct message to undecided voters in our Capital City about the values and the principles we Greens share with them. The value of direct participation in democracy. The value of planning for the just transition to a green economy that creates long term, sustainable jobs. The value of protecting people’s drinking water against risks posed by fracking.

Please send one more donation, one more cheque, to help us get this messages on the airwaves and in the voters’ mailboxes. Your support will give us the push we need to win.

Together, I am confident we can make history on September 22nd.

David Coon

Chers membres et amis,

Nous sommes sur le chemin vers une victoire ; la course dans la circonscription de Fredericton-Sud est très serrée, et partout au Nouveau-Brunswick, nos candidats et nos bénévoles y mettent un effort énorme.

Une forte poussée dans ces derniers 10 jours de notre campagne 2014 fera toute la différence.
Imaginez que, suite à notre effort collectif, nous gagnons le premier siège pour un candidat Vert dans l’Est du Canada.

Envoyons un message clair et direct aux électeurs indécis de Fredericton au sujet des valeurs et des principes que le Parti vert partage avec eux : la participation directe à la démocratie, l’importance de la transition vers une économie verte qui crée des emplois durables à long terme, la protection de l’eau potable contre les risques de la fracturation.

Je vous demande de faire un autre don afin de nous aider à faire parvenir ce message sur les ondes et les boîtes aux lettres des électeurs. Votre appui nous donnera l’élan qu’il nous faut pour gagner.

Ensemble, je suis confiant que nous pouvons entrer dans l’histoire le 22 septembre.

Bien à vous,
David Coon

Green Rally

9 09 2014
The building momentum of the Green Party in the New Brunswick provincial election has caught the attention of federal party leader Elizabeth May, who will join provincial leader David Coon and candidates from throughout the province for a Go Green Rally and corn boil in Fredericton on Sunday afternoon.

Ms. May will be in town to bring her support to the campaign and meet members of the public during her one-day visit to the capital city.

Rally organizers say it will give people the opportunity to meet one of the most dynamic politicians in Canada today as she brings her particular brand of energy and enthusiasm to the campaign. They are hoping people of all political stripes will take advantage of the opportunity to meet and mingle with the two party leaders.

The Go Green Rally will take place at the iRock, 339 King Street, Fredericton, Sunday, Sept. 14 from 1–3 p.m. A bus will be at the SUB parking lot at 12:30 p.m. to bring students down to the afternoon event that will feature fun, food and lots of music.

Le dynamisme du Parti vert du Nouveau-Brunswick au cours de l’élection provinciale a attiré l’attention de la chef du parti vert fédéral Elizabeth May et elle se joindra au chef des Verts de la province David Coon et aux autres candidats Verts de la province lors d’un rassemblement pour le Virage vert et d’une épluchette de blé d’Inde à Fredericton dimanche

Madame May sera en ville pour accorder son appui à la campagne et pour des membres de la population durant sa visite d’une journée dans la capitale.

Les organisateurs du rassemblement savent très bien que ce sera une occasion pour la population de rencontrer une des plus dynamiques politiciennes du Canada qui sait instiller son type particulier d’énergie et d’enthousiasme dans une campagne électorale.  Ils espèrent que des gens de toutes les allégeances politiques tireront avantage de cette occasion pour rencontrer et discuter avec les deux chefs de parti.

Le rassemblement du Virage vert aura lieu au i Rock situé au 339, rue King à Fredericton, dimanche 14 septembre de 13 à 15 heures.  Un autobus sera au stationnement du SUB à midi et demi pour conduire les étudiantes et les étudiants à l’évènement de l’après-midi où vous pourrez vous amuser, manger et entendre de la musique.

Green Party Has Greatest Growth in Donations/Donors

7 08 2014

Financial reports released by Elections Canada over the weekend show that the Green Party has the strongest fundraising growth of any Canadian political party. The GPC raised $531,404 in the second quarter of 2014, representing a 67% increase over the same period in 2013. The party also saw significant growth in the number of donors contributing, with 7,546 donating to the party in second quarter of 2014 – an increase of 66% over the same period in 2013. The Green Party’s robust fundraising gains come at the same time as both the Liberals and Conservatives saw their revenues decline relative to the second quarter of 2013. The 2014 fundraising numbers follow a very strong 2013 fundraising year, in which the Green Party of Canada saw revenue growth of 30%, and donor base growth of 52% compared to 2012.
