Come vote for your riding’s Green Party candidate for the 2019 Federal Election!
Whether you’re a GPC member or just considering green, you’re welcome to come along and hear from the candidate nominees and find out about the Green Wave growing in Waterloo Region and across Canada.

Cambridge Nominee

Returning Cambridge Candidate Michele Braniff was unable to attend the WRGreens preNomination meeting so there is no available video.  Instead, you may listen to the tail end of the speech she gave at the Cambridge Greens launch last year.

    • Michele Braniff

As this would be Michele’s 3rd time running for the Green Party, you can check our more of her past election videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ap3lnrg4_SI&list=PLM8NcWI58uu5AaNIMguCVNSvWQZTHjiL4

Kitchener—Conestoga Nominee

    • Stephanie Goertz

Kitchener South—Hespeler Nominees

This would be David’s 4th time running for the Green Party, so you can see more of him in past election debates: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLM8NcWI58uu466PNnvdfbhlRheVekOiwl

    • Ian Graham
    • Archie Henderson

Unfortunately Mr Henderson wasn’t at the prenomination event, so you’ll have to come out to the event to hear from him!

There will still be a contest for districts with only one nominee; the ballot also has a choice for “None Of The Above”.

In order to vote for a candidate your membership must have been activated by 6 March 2019, or if you have an expired membership you can renew it before or at the event.

6:30pm Doors open (hear the music)
7:15pm Official business gets underway: Introductions, hear from the candidate nominees and voting will ensue!
Musical performances will be scattered through the night and we’ll end with an opportunity to socialize. There’ll be light refreshments and additional food and beverage service will be available. Come early for a pre-event dinner!
