It is an honour and a privilege to be the new leader of the Green Party of Alberta and I thank all of the members for their support. I would also like to thank Janet Keeping for her five years stewarding this party and I am pleased to have her join me on my shadow cabinet. I would also like to thank my fellow leadership candidates; Brian Deheer, James Friesen, Grant Neufeld and Marco Reid. Their efforts and ideas for the party will be an important ingredient in our future successes.
One of the biggest strengths that the Green Party of Alberta will be able to bring to bear to the political landscape is our connection with a world of Greens. Our depth of skills and abilities will be our foundation. Our inclusive attitudes and principles will be our momentum. Our desire for a safe, prosperous and sustainable future will be our fuel.
I am looking forward to helping my fellow Albertans get ahead.
