Yes We Can
Peter Tam - BC Green Party MLA Candidate for Maple Ridge Mission
The BC government needs improvement in addressing education, act on housing affordability, provide better solution for transportation and address climate change in fiscally responsible and realistic way. As a Green MLA I can meet these community challenges with “out of the box” thinking while highly regarding environmental concerns. Having deep engagement through volunteering in the community coupled with my professional experience in solving complex problems, we can pragmatically take real action to resolve important issues. Green Party policies and culture provides a perfect platform for me as an MLA to transform our community and province to become a more prosperous and harmonious place for all citizens
Misconceptions are prevalent in our society; ideas like all Muslims are terrorists, or The Green Party is full of marijuana smoking left wing socialist environmental activists(…a mouth full). I fully support Green principles and policies because they are based on fairness, facts and future security. The simple reason why environmental issues come first (some people still don’t get it) is when you take away our air, water, land and all the things that sustain life, then nothing matters. It’s quite obvious that decisions made without long term vision are destructive to our community and humanity.
My principles and values that aligne with the BC Green Party:
· I work in engineering solving problems, while embracing both creativity and logic.
· I believe in responsible and ethical free enterprise.
· I support those in need of help but don’t believe in hand-outs or free for all.
Why are educated successful people beginning to lean towards Green? Because they don’t just follow others like sheep, they have the intellectual capacity to ignore media hype, antiquated ideologies and usual political BS.
It’s time to take a stand and do the right thing; demand the truth and don't just go with the politics of pleasing anybody and everybody. It’s time to step off the side-line and sign up to be a member of the BC Green, Donate to help me and other Green MLAs to win seats in the legislature and bring back real leadership to this super green province of our.
