Mike Schreiner, leader of the Green Party of Ontario, issued the following statement about the 41st general election:

I’m thrilled that the Green Party earned 5% of the vote across the province, and proud of our strong showings in Guelph, Dufferin–Caledon, and Parry Sound–Muskoka. In Guelph we tripled our results from 2011, and province-wide we doubled our fundraising. In riding after riding, second-time Green candidates saw big gains in their vote totals.

I’m grateful to all the hardworking candidates and their teams. I’m humbled by the amazing support I’ve had in Guelph, and want to thank everyone who contributed to my campaign there.

The Green Party stood up and faced issues that no one else wanted to talk about. We called on the government to fix the school system and stop allowing discrimination and waste. We pushed for home retrofits instead of re-tooled nuclear power. We demanded that the province take action now to protect prime farmland and drinking water at source.

These are not fringe issues or unbaked ideas. They are issues that affect most Ontarians every day. They are questions on which the majority of Ontarians agree with our positions and proposals. But good ideas have a tough time in this electoral system, dominated as it is by fear of what might happen rather than confidence in what could be.     Read more »

Ontario election leaders’ debate 2014

Rachel Power and Mike Schreiner see eye-to-eye

Last night’s debate was missing two things. Mike Schreiner, the Leader of the Green Party of Ontario, and a serious discussion about protecting our environment and natural resources.

Think Big. Expect better. Vote Green.

We are at a crossroads in Ontario. Old line parties squabble over little fixes while the rest of the world marches boldly into the 21st century.

Ontario deserves better — a single publicly funded school system, protecting our environment, and a sane way of doing politics.

Greens are making a difference in Canada and around the world. Vote green for for your kids, your community, your Ontario.

Rachel Power, Toronto-Danforth.  Go Green with Power!
