The New Brunswick Green Party represents a new way of thinking and a new politics. We believe that we have to redesign our economy to serve our communities, and to protect and restore our environment. Too often communities and the environment are made to serve the economy, often with terrible consequences for our people and our planet. We think it should be the other way around - the economy should be organized to serve communities and enhance, not destroy the environment.
New Party – New Beginning
It is a cruel fraud to pretend that expanding the economy will cure our social ills. We believe we must tackle poverty, inequality and injustice directly, head-on and wilfully. The current system is responsible for many of these problems and we won't solve them using the same thinking that created them in the first place.
We believe in a new politics built on public engagement and participation. Our electoral system needs to be redesigned so that citizens can engage in the democratic process in a meaningful way. And democratic decision-making needs to reach into our communities and our regions.
We will never have a healthy democracy as long as our newspapers are owned by the largest group of business interests in the province. The Green Party firmly believes that we must have alternatives to the Irving-owned media if we are to build a healthy democracy in New Brunswick.
The Green Party of New Brunswick is guided by its principles. Imagine, a political party with principles. The old politics is just about winning the next election. The Green Party is about the next generation. This is a new beginning for politics in our province.
