The Green Party understands that the issues facing Kingston specifically, Ontario, Canada, and the world in general, are complex and interwoven. For that reason, the Green Party of Canada articulates nuanced solutions, focused on tangible results for people and the planet.
We will not divide problems into black and white, left and right, good and evil. These approaches only serve to further polarize our society and make consensus and reasoned reflection more difficult — at a time when consensus and reason are most needed.
We understand that progress will not simply arise from a tax cut, or by throwing borrowed money at a given problem. The Green Party of Canada knows that real solutions are found in carefully considered analysis which focuses on social and environmental sustainability. As in all things, our aim is balance for the common good.
Although the Green Party is relatively young (founded in 1983), it has evolved quickly and has attained a level of sophistication that rivals any other established political party. Green Party policy is comprehensive and progressive, with a reasoned and well-researched plan for each specific area of governance, from the economy and social justice to education and the environment.
Our first and guiding principles are the concepts of sustainability and balance. We believe our policies, firmly grounded in ecology, true-cost economic accounting, and social justice, will begin the renewal of ecosystems and reverse the continuing erosion of our quality-of-life and of our democratic participation in the society in which we live.
