Go Green

In response to Mr. Ryder’s letter to the editor, I encourage Mr. Ryder to look to the Green Party.

In response to Mr. Ryder’s letter to the editor (March 22, 2013) titled Better Representatives wanted in Government, I encourage Mr. Ryder to look to the Green Party.

The Green Party has no party whip. This means that elected Greens are not bound by strict party discipline. Unlike other parties, Greens are free to vote for what is best for their constituents.

An MLA’s first responsibility is to the people of their riding, as such, if elected, my vote in the legislature will reflect the interests of Saanich North and the Islands first.

The Greens provide an exciting opportunity for voters to embrace real change. Through greater cooperation and by working together, Greens are in the best position to support good ideas no matter who puts them forward.

Adam Olsen, Green Party Candidate

Saanich North and the Islands
