Art Green of Hope has been acclaimed as Green Party of Canada candidate for the new federal riding of Mission/Matsqui/Fraser Canyon.

He actively pursued the nomination over the last few months and has been instrumental in developing the electoral district association.

“It’s a great honour to stand with Elizabeth May and the Green Party of Canada to fight for a climate action plan, instead of exporting all our jobs outside of Canada,” said Green. “We feel our fight for renewable energy will be the greatest economic catalyst that the world will ever see, while at the same time cleansing the planet instead of destroying it with carbon based fuels. We look forward to accomplishing this with all your participation.”

In addition to a climate action plan, Green’s main objectives in the upcoming election will be electoral reform and a national mental health strategy.
