The BC Green Party is kicking off their campaign with a St. Patrick’s Day launch on Friday, March 17.
Green Candidate for Kelowna-Lake Country, Dr. Alison Shaw, will proudly be wearing green and speaking about Green Party policies and platform at the Naked Cafe, located on Lawrence Avenue, from 4 to 7 p.m.
“The support we are seeing for the BC Greens in this election is elevated and exciting,” said Shaw.
“Our message is getting out that we are passionate about ordinary things that affect peoples lives, like housing, jobs and services for our aging population. We are no longer just the party for the environment. Very strong green candidates from across the province are standing up to protect what we value in BC. In this election, promoting responsible government, boosting meaningful employment and ensuring affordable housing exists for all are some of the key issues that people of Kelowna-Lake Country will be voting for. We invite and encourage residents to come to the Friday evening launch. We want to demonstrate why and how the BC Greens are the genuine alternative in this election.”
Alison Shaw is a local business owner with a PhD in sustainability and passion for our community.
According to the BC Greens policy document, the party is driven by five main themes: health, safety, standard of living, ecological balance, and responsible government.
“We want as many people to hear what we have to offer in this election,” said Shaw. “Rather than identifying with right or left, we emphasize smart, evidence-based policy that makes sense for BC communities and for the future of the province. As far as we can tell, there are no other parties with the same goal.”
Shaw and her team encourage anyone interested to attend the official launch on Friday, March 17 from 4 – 7 p.m. There are three ways to learn more about provincial and local BC Green Party policies join the Alison Shaw Kelowna-Lake Country Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages, call 250.860.3004 or visit the Green Party office located at No. 9-Powick Rd (just off Harvey and Hwy 33).
