Elizabeth May Cameron - River Heights
Why did you decide to run in the 2011 Manitoba election?
I was inspired by the vision that the Green Party of Manitoba has for our province. I don’t see much of a difference between the other party platforms, whereas the Greens have put forth innovative solutions. Judicious management of our finite resources seems like a no-brainer to me, yet no one else is coming from that standpoint. Also admire the fact that the Greens will implement a good idea regardless of it source whereas others seem so entrenched in their party lines that progress is stifled. Manitobans are sick of parliamentary bickering. The greens in Europe came up with the slogan: neither Right, nor Left – but Forward. Love it.
Is there anything in particular you would like to change in our province? In your electoral division?
I would like to see more support for our local economy, and River Heights has a large number of small businesses that keep this community a great place to live. It deeply concerns me that, for example, our governments do nothing when local businesses are in trouble, yet they give millions of incentives to IKEA.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
We’re a ground swell of 32 candidates this year, half of which are women, and all representing a gamut of age groups, ethnicity, and backgrounds. We all share an idea of a government with vision, integrity, and a sustainable plan in place that goes beyond the next election. Greens are ahead of the curve when it comes to long term sustainable thinking, and I’m proud of that.
