Federal Green Party leader Elizabeth May to speak to delegates
Green Party faithful from across the province are gathering on Vancouver Island this weekend for their annual convention.
As well as participating in the annual general meeting, BC leader Andrew Weaver says delegates will hear from federal leader Elizabeth May, and environmentalist David Suzuki.
Weaver says they’ll look to develop a new policy document that will make the green party a legitimate option for voters in next spring’s election.
“Our membership has basically doubled in the last eight months or so.
We’ve got a sold out event happening here at Cadboro Bay Commons.
Up at UVic people from across B.C. are descending here as we get ready for 2017 so there will be some exciting things happening.”
Weaver will speak to delegates tonight, but says he wants to spend the weekend listening and learning from the members in order to develop a shared vision for the party.
