The Green Party of Nova Scotia officially launched our campaign on Thursday, July 22 live on Facebook. Leader, Jessica Alexander and Deputy Leader, Jenn Kang shared an overview of what to expect from the GPNS in this election. You can watch the replay on our Facebook page here
In discussions with other greens, I have collected thoughts on the state of our society and why I think it is time for a new era of politics.
This collection of essays argues why I think politics needs revitalization, and how I think this can be done.
These are not the official policies of the Green Party of Nova Scotia, but this is meant to show my deeper thinking about the problems we face and the opportunities I see.
