Why do you want to run in the 2011 Manitoba election?
I have always admired the earth, and all the diversity she has provided, and I am appalled at the destruction human activity has caused. For years my partner and I have tried to talk the talk and walk the walk. My next dream is to light little fires in the hearts and minds of kids and adults to energize them to discover what they want to contribute to the earth.
What experience will you bring to compliment your role as MLA?
I have lived in the Interlake for 30 years, operating an organic fruit farm. Dealing with the ups and downs of Mother Nature has given me perspective on what is really important. Being a resident in the constituency has given me a clear understanding of the important election issues here.
Is there anything in particular you would like to change in our province? In your electoral division?
We need to work toward provincial food security and develop provincial water and energy policies. We need to be prepared for the challenges that we will face with the coming changes in climate.
Do you have any other comments about your candidacy?
Give me a try -- be the first province in Canada to elect a Green MLA!
What is your favourite location in the electoral division in which you are running?
My home -- Plum Ridge Farm. I have lived and worked here for 30 years, and have worked hard to make it a beautiful place to spend time in.
