Why You Should Vote Green in Charlottetown

This federal general election I’m proudly and enthusiastically voting Green, for Darcie Lanthier in Charlottetown.

I think you should vote Green too.

Here’s why.

Darcie Lanthier is the kind of person you want as a Member of Parliament: she’s smart, capable, deeply engaged with the issues of the day–housing, climate, reconciliation, education, democratic reform. She’s worked as a community organizer, she’s started and run businesses, she’s raised a family, she knows how to wield a hammer.

My esteem for Darcie has only grown in the 2 years since I first suggested you vote for her: she’s used her time well, both building housing, and strenuously advocating for the rights of tenants, while at the same time leading a burgeoning solar energy business. 

Darcie has an intuitive sense of social justice, and is, at her core, a compassionate person; she is running for Parliament not as a act of hubris, but because she feels an urgency to shine light on things that often escape attention on the calcified merry-go-round of status quo politics. And she does this with profound optimism, free from cynicism or rancour. 

Darcie is, quite simply, the most qualified candidate on the ballot.

And that’s why you should vote for her.

I agree 100 per cent. She has two votes at our house.

You sum it up well - and we agree. We need more politicians like Darcie who are in it for the rights reasons.

I acted on your advice, Peter, but not enough others joined us. You clearly stated the reasons to vote for Darcie. I was hoping she would be our MP.
