Green Party of Ontario leader Mike Schreiner issued the following statement regarding the election of David Coon as New Brunswick’s first Green MLA:
Congratulations to New Brunswick Green Party leader David Coon on a well-run campaign and for winning the first Green seat east of British Columbia. Your success is an inspiration for Greens across Canada.
David’s vision for a sustainable future and more democratic politics has engaged voters who are seeking change. He will bring civility, integrity and a focus on good public policy to the New Brunswick legislature.
The New Brunswick Green Party’s clear opposition to shale gas fracking and support for practical solutions to climate change are timely. His election sends an important message to all Canadians.
I look forward to the positive changes that David will bring to New Brunswick and Canadian politics.
