“The Green Party’s representatives and constituents are “Protectors of the Land” as well, and have the know-how and ability to commence a vibrant green economy that will even make Mother Earth smile; therefore, I am honored to run as a candidate for the New Brunswick Green Party’s Bathurst East-Nepisiguit-Saint-Isidore riding.”

All 3 levels of government know that Indigenous people (Indian, Inuit, and Métis) have a unique relationship with the land; they are well known as the “Protectors of the Land”; furthermore, it is not hard to see that the Green Party respects and recognizes the Peace and Friendship Treaty; in addition to the United Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.
