Furstenau excited to resume leadership campaign

VICTORIA, BC – Sonia Furstenau, MLA for Cowichan Valley, welcomed the B.C. Green Party’s announcement that it is re-starting its leadership campaign, following its suspension due to COVID-19. 

“I am excited to continue speaking with members, supporters and newcomers about the future of the B.C. Green Party,” said Furstenau.

“As B.C. moves towards recovery from COVID-19, we need an equitable, sustainable renewal to make our province stronger. We need fresh ideas and the political courage to implement them. The B.C. Greens are changing the political conversation in our province. Because of our leadership, issues like serious climate action, basic income and the development of genuine progress indicators are being worked on in government. 

“I am excited to keep pushing for new big ideas in my campaign, and I will be releasing new policies as part of my leadership platform shortly.”

Furstenau previously released her first platform plank on building a resilient economy, which includes policies such as exploring a 4-day work week, adopting health and wellbeing budgets and increasing investments in child care and mental health, on February 28.
