Normal conflict of interest statement. I'm @GordBaird_LJDF's volunteer manager in his @BCGreens campaign in the riding next door. But I'll be aiming to be unbiased and fair.
#BCPoli #yyj #metchosin #esquimalt Q1: Ferry to Victoria
RJ: Would very much support ferry service. Would need co-operation between DND, transit, local governments and private interests. Also work with Island Corridor foundation. DND used to run a ferry there.

#BCPoli While Karen is introducing the candidates, my conflict of interest statement....
This election I'm @GordBaird_LJDF's Volunteer Coordinator. So obviously biased. However, for the first section I will be #livetweeting as accurately and fairly as possible.
#BCPoli #AllCandidates #LDJF Q1 Homelessness/Mental Health/addiction
Gord: Deeply intertwined. Homelessness causes alienation from society. Housing has become unattainable. Green party supports a means tested rental support. GLI would provide security so no one is left behind.

#BCPoli #leadership debate well I ran into ISSUES. flat tire and had to walk a bunch and then no power at home. ah well watching now on cellphone wifi. So extremely late start to #livetweeting.
#BCpoli My normal second tweet... conflict of interest statement. But a more serious statement this time... I'm serving as the @BCGreens' @GordBaird_LJDF's Volunteer Co-ordinator. Also as normal, will attempt to be impartial, until judgy time at the end.
#BCPoli Q: Reconcilation and resources.
@SoniaFurstenau : We have to respect first nations and work in a government to government relationship. Words have to be followed with actions that match.

David: We need Greens in the house of commons. Need to hold the government to account. If not we won't get the changes needed.
#merner4leader #GPC #PVC #Mernercommechef
David: Canada used to be respected on a world stage - PM Pearson got a nobel peace price. But we have taken the wrong path. Largest per capita supporter of O&G. Outsized contribution to climate change.
