What the Networks Don't Want Canadians to Know

Attention: Assignment Editor, City Editor, Environment Editor, Government/Political Affairs Editor, Transportation Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO, MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - The Green Party released its platform at a press conference in Toronto on Thursday, April 7, 2011. Adriana Mugnatto-Hamu, candidate for Toronto-Danforth, attended the press conference, and joined Green Party candidates and Canadians across the country who watched the unveiling of the platform by live-streaming video on the Internet.

The Green Book contains tax cuts for low income Canadians, green jobs with a bright future, and real measures to clean up the environment and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

"Our platform makes it clear. The Green Party of Canada has a plan for a smart economy, strong communities and true democracy. We have spent our time developing solutions - not engaging in partisan name-calling. We have solutions to help families and young people, to combat climate change, to create a national transportation strategy, strengthen our communities and to fix our democracy. We call it smart economy, strong communities and true democracy," said Green Party Leader ?Elizabeth May.

The platform contains a suite of measures designed to be economically viable, create jobs, address poverty, protect our health care system, increase support for youth and seniors, respond to the climate crisis and clean up the environment. Each measure has been fully costed.

"We will create thousands of jobs investing in renewable energy, expanding passenger rail, modernizing freight and retrofitting thousands of buildings," added Ms. May. "We are also the only party so far in this campaign speaking to international issues and raising trade deals as a concern."

"I encourage all the voters of Toronto-Danforth to have a close look at our platform. It is full of ideas that will have a very positive impact on our community and our families," said Ms. Mugnatto-Hamu. "It addresses the needs of Canadians at the local, national and international level, and represents the change this country needs to sustain us in the years to come."

The Green Party Green Book is available at www.greenparty.ca/platform.
