Building Bridges and Making Connections - March 2023

This past month has been a very busy one. Since our SGP executive's last meeting, I attended a major union gathering in Saskatoon. There I conducted a series of small group meetings with folks interested in talking about the Green Party. Predictably, most people I met with are NDP supporters, but it was a chance to build bridges and put away old assumptions. We need to flaunt our pro-labour stance and counter the propaganda to the contrary.

World Water Day 2023

Today, March 22, is World Water Day.



We should, however, be mindful every day of our impact on water. This vital resource is shared among all people and wildlife, so we have a shared responsibility to protect it! There are many ways we can all help to keep our waterways clean. Limit plastic waste, dispose of garbage properly, keep a rain barrel or rain garden to prevent polluted runoff from entering our water sources, and if you own riparian land, don't clear too close to the bank! A barrier of trees and shrubs helps to filter garbage and prevent sediment from releasing into the water; this and the shade they provide also support fish health!  Please do your part whenever possible.

New Year - New Entheusiasm - January 2023

We are starting this New Year with a new website, a new format to our newsletter The Weaver, and a growing team of aspiring MLA candidates about to seek nomination for the 2024 election. 

We are better prepared ahead of an election than ever before. Fully one-third of our constituencies are spoken for. At this point, between elections, seemed like the perfect time to improve our communications systems, and to confirm and train candidates. I’ve spoken numerous times of my “Ten Year Vision” plan I had when I became leader, and today I see much of this plan rolling out faster than the ten years I had originally accounted for.
