DELTA B.C. – The B.C. Green Party is excited to announce the nomination of its candidate for Delta South, Larry Colero. Colero taught corporate ethics at both UBC’s Sauder School of Business and SFU’s Beedie School of Business. He also created the first Strategic Alliances seminars for UBC, and was Moderator for the first two years of their Summer Institute in Sustainability. Colero is currently on retainer as Policy Advisor to the Institute of Advanced Financial Planners for assignments in regulatory affairs, trademark issues and professional ethics.
“Three elections ago in Delta South, the B.C. Green Party candidate came in second, and third the election before,” said Colero. “In the last election, our party deferred to Vicki Huntington. Now we’re back. Other party candidates may say they will represent constituents. But as MLAs, they are expected to vote as a block to satisfy campaign donors instead of their constituents (like approving unnecessary, reckless megaprojects to be paid for by untold future generations). A founding principle shared by Green parties worldwide guarantees me the right, if elected, to vote with my conscience and always in the best interests of my constituents.”
Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, welcomed Colero’s nomination.
“I am absolutely thrilled that Larry is running for the B.C. Greens in Delta South,” said Weaver. “His expertise on ethics is much-needed in the B.C. Legislature and could not come at a better time. Larry’s integrity and ability to collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders are second-to-none and the community of Delta South would be well-served with him as their MLA.”
