When I was still a political science student at university I knew that I wanted to get involved in politics. At the time I felt like I should simply join with one of the largest parties - after all, that would be the likeliest path to "success." And so I did. But it never felt right. In fact, I grew quite disillusioned with the entire process. Politics seemed to be full of hypocrisy - mostly full of people chasing selfish agendas and trying to sell this as "good for everyone."

It wasn't until I started to get involved with the B.C. Green Party (many years later) that I felt I'd found what I'd felt politics should be - people actually working for the greater good. The B.C. Green Party looks at the big picture. It thinks about the long term. And it tries to find the "right" thing to do, even if it isn't personally profitable.
