Louise Comeau

Louise is running in the 2020 provincial election because Green values are conserving values: living within our ecological means, local self-reliance, real democracy, self-determination and active citizenship, and social justice and equality.

Louise is an environmental consultant specializing in climate change policy and communications, and an honorary research associate and instructor at the University of New Brunswick (UNB). She has received two Queen’s citizenship medals for her work in international climate negotiations and creation of the Green Municipal Fund and other programming at the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. She has a PhD in environmental management from UNB.

Her father was born in Neguac, but like so many New Brunswickers, left home to work. Louise grew up in Toronto, before moving to Ottawa-Gatineau where she launched her career in environmental protection. At aged 50, she decided it was time to head west to complete her master’s in environmental education and communication and then to NB to do a PhD in environmental ethics. She chose NB, and Carleton-York, as the place she wanted to live with Tom Beckley in Keswick Ridge and to seed a new life.

She is running in the 2020 provincial election because Green values are conserving values: living within our ecological means, local self-reliance, real democracy, self-determination and active citizenship, and social justice and equality.

We can live our values, while ensuring everyone is free to enjoy pure air, water and soil, build a less wasteful economy, make citizens the drivers of a renewed democracy, and give people a hand up.

Louise wants to use her decades of political, policy and program experience to bring Green conserving and sensible values and ideas to the provincial Legislature that benefit Carleton-York, but also New Brunswick, Canada and the Earth. Louise believes we can do that by building on our proud traditions for a future that works for people and the planet.
