WRGreens 2018 Campaign Office: OPEN HOUSE #ONpoli

Hi Green supporters,

Please come out and join us this Sunday evening, 7pm at our new office!

We’ll have pizza & snacks available, and you can meet with fellow supporters as well as our 5 candidates in Waterloo Region.

Location: 6 Duke St E, Kitchener Map

We’re also looking for a few items to help furnish the space. If you have anything you might be able to contribute, here is our ongoing list of needs:

The campaign is officially underway and there has been a flurry of activity already! Green signs are popping up all over the city, we’ve knocked on hundreds of doors, and a visit from our provincial leader, Mike Schreiner, helped kick off our campaign this past wednesday.

View the video with Mike Schreiner from the launch event on Facebook.

See you soon!

Strong Women in Politics: Stacey Danckert (Kitchener Centre), Hannah Bell (PEI MLA) and Michele Braniff (Cambridge)

These three women give me hope.

It is exciting to that 2/5ths of Waterloo Region’s Green Party Candidates are women.  Stacey Danckert will represent Kitchener Centre and Michele Braniff Cambridge in the Election we are about to have here in Ontario.

The inspirational woman in the middle is Hannah Bell, the newest elected Green in Canada.  In a recent PEI By-Election, Hannah won the second Green seat in the PEI Legislative Assembly.  In PEI the Greens are the Third Party, and they are polling awfully well.  Even though they are only a caucus of two, they have already demonstrated that politics can be done differently.

And oddly enough, citizens like that.

Ontario’s Green Party Candidates are looking for their chance to do the same thing here.   It’s time.

REMINDER for TODAY:
Join the Waterloo Region Greens and Green Party of Ontario Leader Mike Schreiner  for our 2018 provincial election Campaign Launch at Fresh Ground, located at 256 King Street East, Kitchener, N2H 2V6

Come celebrate with us as we kick off the biggest campaign we’ve ever run in Green Party history! We’ll have lots of excitement as the writs are drawn up and the election is officially underway. Make sure to wear Green so we can show Ontario that the Green Wave is here.

When: May 9, 2018 3:30 pm
Where: Fresh Ground (at The Working Centre), 256 King St E, Kitchener

The event is free, but spots are limited so RSVP today.https://gpo.ca/event/campaign-launch-kitchener/

Candidates: Zdravko Gunjevic (Waterloo), David Weber (Kitchener South—Hespeler), Pauline Thornham (Brampton North), Bob Jonkman (Kitchener—Conestoga), Ingrid, Michele Braniff (Cambridge), Abhijeet Manay (Mississaga-Streetsville)

 

Why does CityTV think it is Okay to Censor What Voters Need to Hear?

Macleans Magazine just published its “Ontario election 2018 platform guide: Where the parties stand on everything from hydro bills to taxes to transit” which makes absolutely no mention of the Green Party at all.

And tonight, Mike Schreiner has been excluded from CityTV’s televised Leadership Debate.

If you care about democracy in Ontario, if you can get down to City TV in Toronto tonight, please join the silent protest about the Green Party’s exclusion from the debate.

A contingent of WRGreens has gone down to join the  silent protest.  Signs are welcome.  the Protest begins at 5:00 pm down at City TV News, 33 Dundas Street East in Toronto, and is scheduled to go on at least until the televised debate begins.
The Facebook event information can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1649693598473089/
