Green Party nominates Art Green as the Chilliwack/Hope candidate for upcoming federal election

Green has been politically active in the riding for the Party since 2014

With the federal election looming in the fall, political parties across the nation are lining up their candidates: Art Green has been again nominated by the Green Party of Canada Electoral District Association as this year’s candidate for the Chilliwack/Hope riding. He was also the Party’s candidate in the 2015 federal election.

“Standing shoulder to shoulder with the Canadian Greens, and Greens from around the world, climate change will be our priority issue,” Green wrote in a press release announcing his nomination.

“Creating a plan to keep global warming under 1.5 degrees is (also a) major concern, not only for Greens, but (for) populations from around the world, (and recent) announcements that unmitigated climate change will result in the extinction of over one million species, is not only alarming, but potentially catastrophic.”

To address these issues, Green says the party—if elected—will be driving innovation and technology platforms in regards to local economic development, such as inviting the motion picture industry to continue using the Eastern Fraser Valley as a backdrop for its many projects.

“With over $3.5 billion of Motion Picture production forecasted for 2019, and growing, this has the potential to increase the GDP of the Eastern Fraser Valley by tens of millions of dollars, and create hundreds of family supporting jobs,” Green said.

“Campaigns are the perfect venues for bringing issues to the forefront, and solving the problems of our constituency and the nation,” which is exactly the opportunity Green says he’s looking for with this election season.

“We currently have an extensive crew of volunteers, and will be out canvassing in your neighbourhood soon: building (grassroots) relationships at front doors will be the strategy of the Chilliwack/Hope Green Party.”
