Green Teams to celebrate writ drop April 16

Green candidates and supporters will be out celebrating the dropping of the writ April 16.

"We are looking forward to a positive, exciting campaign that is focused on the issues," said Leader Jane Sterk. "BC is at a cross roads, and our candidates and supporters will be out on the cross roads reminding voters how important it is to get involved, find out what the parties are saying about the issues, and vote."

To mark the official start of campaigning for the May 14 election South Island candidates and supporters will participate in a 'Green Wave', greeting motorists and pedestrians at key intersections. Between 7:30 and 9 a.m. Green teams will be at 

  • Pat Bay Highway and Beacon
  • Pat Bay Highway and Island Highway
  • Spectrum Overpass
  • Royal Oak and Pat Bay overpass
  • McKenzie and Shelbourne
  • Fort and Foul Bay Road
  • Pandora and Cook
  • Blanshard and Pandora

All the candidates and supporters will converge at the Hillside, Douglas and Government Street intersection between 8:30 and 9 a.m.

"It's a fun way to launch our official campaign," Sterk said. "But this election is serious business. Electoral Reform, Sustainable Development, Fiscal Responsibility, Health Care, Effective Social Programs - the list of priorities the Green Party wants to present to voters contains important initiatives in almost every aspect of government."
