I am a retired Dalhousie University professor of biology and environmental studies; now a proud grandparent. I emigrated from the United Kingdom to Nova Scotia in 1974, and stayed because of the beauty of this province. Our natural environment is precious, yet fragile. As my political awareness grew, I realized that fundamental problems in public policy are not being addressed adequately.
My political passions in this regard include electoral and governance reform, environmental and economic sustainability, and social fairness. We must change our electoral system so that all votes count towards electing representatives. We must adopt ecological-economic principles in our provincial budgets and accounting. We must strive to create greater economic fairness through a well-balanced mixed economy, and greater social fairness by creating innovative social enterprises. In my view, the Green Party offers the best hope for changes like these because the party is young and open to new ideas.
