40 month Challenge
Hello Greens Supporters!
2015 is well behind us and we are already getting excited for the road ahead! Preparation doesn’t start on the day the Prime Minister drops the writ, it starts the day after the last votes have been counted. If we begin investing today for the October 21 2019 election we will be in a most favourable position, and the earlier we start the easier it will be. How? With just $5/month for the next 40 months!
If every member signed up today for just $5/month, we will have enough funds by October 2019 ! Additionally, if each of us found just one more supporter to become a member and do the same, our funds can even match that of the Conservative Party of Canada. But even more important than that, we will be in a position to fund initiatives that improve our community; things like improving and maintaining nature trails, transferring unsold foods from local organic farms to the schools and soup kitchens that can really use it, or much needed medical equipment for our hospitals, and other issues that are important to us Greens.That’s why I am taking the 40 month pledge.
I’ll be honest, my bills are pretty tight right now and my wife and I are doing everything we can to better our situation, and we are just starting to see the light shine in front of us. However, the general political discourse I see is too much talking and not enough doing. I want to take action and see results today. If we take action today, we don’t need to wait 4 years to make promises, we have the power to improve our community immediately. And as a party with our roots in activism it should be a natural and fun!
In reality, I know that I won’t notice the $5 when I’m paying my bills. Life will pass by all the same. But I will notice the trails that are being maintained and knowing that I lent a helping hand. The teachers will notice an improvement in in their students’ attitudes. The doctors and nurses will notice having sufficient equipment at their hands, and the patients will appreciate the faster service as a result. And on top of all that, I probably will notice the $45 that I’ll get back every year at tax time.I don’t want to wait until 2019 to make more promises, I want to take action today to strengthen our community, and I hope you feel the same!

PS. Just in the 10 minutes it took me to write this, I found that I believe in it so much that I decided to double up to $10/month. The benefits of our contributions are just too important to pass up!

|Greens had great candidates in the 2015 federal election. Nationally we increased the number of our votes from the 2011 election, which is something to celebrate.Liberals received 11X the number of votes of the Green Party but 184X the number of seats. Is this fair representation?
Liberals received 39.5% of the popular vote, got 55% of the seats and scooped the majority of power in parliament. That’s what happens with Canada’s unfair “First Past The Post” electoral system.If you would like to see a strong green presence in the next election, please support proportional representation, and volunteer to help us or donate to the North Okanagan-Shuswap Green Party of Canada.
