Elizabeth May endorses Sonia Furstenau for B.C. Greens leader

VICTORIA, BC – Elizabeth May, former leader of the Green Party of Canada, is endorsing Sonia Furstenau, MLA for Cowichan Valley, in her candidacy to be the next leader of the BC Greens. 

“Sonia is a proven leader. She’s extremely articulate, eloquent, brilliant, sharp – also courageous. She is someone who stands up and speaks out on behalf of our natural world. She’s a champion for water. And I know that with Sonia at the helm of the Green Party of British Columbia, we’ll elect more and more talented Greens to our Legislature in Victoria,” said May. 

“I am honoured to receive Elizabeth’s endorsement,” said Furstenau. 

“Her leadership enabled the Greens to break through in Canadian politics. Since she was first elected in 2011, we now have dozens of Greens elected at all three levels of government across the country. She has modelled a different style of politics and kept vital issues like climate change and income inequality at the top of the Canadian political agenda.

“People are ready for change that will tackle systemic racism and inequality and build a truly clean economy. My campaign is about providing common sense solutions that will make our province more equitable, sustainable and resilient. I am delighted to have Elizabeth’s support as I move forward with building the next generation of the B.C. Green Party.”
