Green Party members and leaders join Walk for Reconciliation

photo_(1).JPGNearly 90 Green Party members and leaders from all three party levels - municipal, provincial and federal - were among the estimated 70,000 people who braved the rain in the morning of September 22nd to take part in the Walk for Reconciliation, a walk organised by Reconciliation Canada as part of Reconciliation Week to mark a historic turning point in relations between indigenous and non-indigenous people.

The Green Party walking team included a who's-who of Canadian Green leaders, including Green Party of Canada leader and Member of Parliament Elizabeth May, Vancouver City Councilor Adriane Carr, Green Party of BC MLA Andrew Weaver and interim leader of the Green Party of BC, Adam Olsen, who himself is a member of the Tsartlip First Nation on the Saanich Peninsula.

We were honoured to take part in such a unique and historic event, reaffirming the commitment of all three levels of the Green Party to a brighter future built in full and respectful collaboration between the First Peoples of this land and all others who have made Canada their home.
