My name is Iain Currie, your Green Party candidate for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo.
I have always cared deeply about our community, our democracy, and our environment. But until very recently, I did not see myself running for politics. Like so many of us, I got busy raising my kids and pursuing my career as a Crown prosecutor, standing on the sidelines of the greatest challenges of our time. I continued to do little things to try to make things better, even though I knew it wasn't quite enough.
Lately, as I watch my kids strike their own ways into the world, I've found myself wondering what kind of future they, and eventually my grandchildren, are inheriting.
I can no longer stand on the sidelines. I owe it to my children - and all children - to step up and be part of the leadership this country so desperately needs.
I believe that, together, we can:
Create Sustainable Jobs
A Green economy means stable, long-term employment in our communities. We will create opportunities for all generations to thrive now and in the future.
Act on the Climate Crisis
We are facing an emergency and must act like it. The Green Party has the only credible plan to do what is necessary.
Make Change in Ottawa
Politics as usual leads to broken promises and short-term thinking. We believe in working together with other parties to get the right things done for Canadians.
Will you join me?
