Toronto – Joined by candidates and supporters at Queen’s Park , Mike Schreiner, Leader of the Green Party of Ontario, kicked off the largest campaign in the party’s history.

“We are in fantastic shape for this campaign,” said Mike Schreiner GPO Leader. “As I’ve talked to people in communities across the province, it’s clear to me that politics as usual is not working. We have Green candidates in each of the 107 ridings across the province ready to give Ontarians a choice for change at Queen’s Park in this election.”

The Green Party’s Five point plan tackles the big issues of our time: the loss of good local jobs, rising energy prices and climate change, and the sustainability of our health care system.

The Green Party is the only party with a plan that:

  • Creates jobs while responsibly managing taxpayers’ money
  • Tackles rising energy prices and puts a stop to subsidizing the wasteful use of energy
  • Focuses on a comprehensive health promotion strategy

“A vote for the other parties will only result in more of the same,” concluded Schreiner. “If you think that fairness, integrity and respect for our communities belongs at Queen’s Park, we think just like you do.”

The Green Party was the first provincial party to launch their platform on May 25, offering a bold vision for building a financially, socially and environmentally sustainable Ontario. Since that time the party has polled in contention in tight races across the province.

Capitalizing on the momentum from electing the first Green MP in Canadian history, the Green Party of Ontario is looking forward to an exciting election campaign.
