RICHMOND B.C. – The B.C. Green Party is pleased to announce the nomination of its candidate for Richmond South Centre, Greg Powell. Powell worked for several years at the Pembina Institute, where he led an initiative to engage Alberta citizens on climate justice and renewable energy.
“Here in B.C. and around the world, we're seeing that politics as usual isn't working,” said Powell. “We need a fresh approach to solve emerging challenges. We need policies based on clear, sound values if we are to transition our province to a safe, fair future. Only the B.C. Greens offer a fresh approach with crystal clear values like social justice and diversity. I'm excited to represent the people of Richmond South Centre where I see these values prominently in the community.”
Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, welcomed Powell’s nomination.
“Greg is another exceptional candidate who is stepping away from his career to stand up and represent the public’s interest,” said Weaver. “Greg has been a strong voice for Indigenous rights, climate justice and poverty reduction. He is very passionate about ensuring a sustainable, equitable future for our province and I look forward to working with him in the Legislature.”
