(Scarborough): Voters looking for change can vote Green on September 1 in the Scarborough—Rouge River by-election, and send a message that the political games at Queen’s Park must end. 
 
The Green Party of Ontario offers an honest approach that opposes politics driven by big money and backroom deals. 

“We’ve seen time and time again that this Liberal government is best at delivering scandals, instead of real change,” says GPO leader Mike Schreiner. “The opposition parties have failed to ask the tough questions on issues that matter to people. It’s time for change.”
 
“There are big issues facing us in Ontario - big money buying access to politicians, climate change, and people not able to make ends meet. The GPO is in the best position to deliver change on these issues -- we are the only party not tied to big money. Our goal is to bring honesty, integrity and good public policy to Queen’s Park.”
