From COVID to the cost of living and the climate crisis, we’re living in a period of great anxiety and unease. Those in power are more concerned with their own self-interest than serving the people. But in the last two months, two extraordinary women have been elected as leaders of their parties, offering a plan to support us through these crises, while building us back stronger than before. Sonia Furstenau, BC Green leader, and Annamie Paul, Canadian Green leader, reflect the strength, compassion and genuine leadership that we need in the world today. Join them for a town hall about the issues that matter most to you. And cheer them on as they both head into elections over the next week.
Sonia Furstenau “is the type of serious-minded, moral person we should want in the legislatures of this country.”
- Gary Mason, Globe & Mail
“There are always certain candidates that surpass the party boundaries, that have a way of looking at things… that help to bring about consensus, and such a person, I believe, is Annamie Paul.”
- Zanana Akande, former Ontario NDP cabinet minister
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
