Green candidate Adriane Carr will run for Vancouver city council
The Green Party of Vancouver is putting forward four candidates in this fall’s civic election.
The party announced its lineup today (August 9) weeks after it rejected an offer to join an electoral alliance with the city’s ruling Vision Vancouver and the Coalition of Progressive Electors.
Adriane Carr, deputy leader of the Green Party of Canada, will run as candidate for council.
Incumbent park commissioner Stuart Mackinnon will go for another term at the park board.
Louise Boutin, who is active in the arts, environmental advocacy, and her local neighbourhood as board member of the Kensington Community Centre Association, is eyeing a seat at school board.
Scott Andrews, who started his activism with Oxfam Canada and has volunteered with the Wilderness Committee, will go for Electoral District A, which has one member on the board of Metro Vancouver.
“We are thrilled with the calibre of individuals who have shown interest in running as Green candidates in the municipal election,” Drina Read, chairperson of the Green Party of Vancouver’s nominating committee said in a news release. “We are confident that the candidates we are recommending will be very popular with the voters in Vancouver this November.”
The party will hold its nomination meeting on September 12 where the candidacies of the four will be affirmed by members.
