As you know, we set ambitious goals for 2013. Our second provincial election in less than 1 ½ years is a virtual certainty this spring, and we are working to send Mike Schreiner to Queen’s Park.
We reached out to you – our members and supporters – and asked for your help to follow in Elizabeth May’s footsteps and elect our first Green MPP by renewing your membership.
With the strong support from thousands of Ontarians, we not only met our targets, we shattered them!
Thanks to your generous support last year, we were able to raise over $373,000 in 2012, making this our best non-election fundraising year ever. This by far exceeded our previous non-election year of 2010 by nearly 60 percent!
This is huge. Due to our collective fundraising efforts, we were able to start Mike Schreiner’s campaign in Guelph with a bang. We can continue to push for issues you care about to the front of the agenda, like pushing for a modern, sensible approach to energy in the province, protecting our prime agricultural land and saving our old-growth red pine forests. And, we can capitalize on improving poll numbers (10.1 percent provincially, and 9.5 percent nationally according to EKOS), continue our build up and be ready to fight the next provincial election in a few months time, and by pulling together, we can elect Green MPPs to Queen’s Park.
There is still much to be done.
Your past support of both money and time has been critical to our organization’s strength. Today, I’m asking for your ongoing support in putting our best foot forward as we head towards a possible spring election and by-elections in at least London West and Windsor-Tecumseh. Let your voice continue to be heard loud and clear at Queen’s Park and across your province.

Renew your GPO membership today, and work with me to elect our first Green MPP to Queen’s Park.
Thank you so much for your continued support of our party.
