D-Brief for September 29

Long-time activist and Green Party advocate Bill McCallum endorses Dimitri

J.D. William (Bill) McCallum has been involved with the Green Party for 32 years working to grow the Party nationally and regionally.

"I have been involved with the Green Party of Canada since 1986, doing what I could to grow the Party nationally, in BC and local (in the Kootenays and Nanaimo BC) these many years. I have followed the words and actions of Dimitri Lascaris for more than a decade now and, after careful consideration of all the GPC Leadership candidates, have decided that he is my best choice.

"My activism started with the Peace Movement in the late 1960s in Montreal — No Nukes, End the Vietnam War, Just for the Palestinians. To this I added decades of action on the environment, Social Justice, First Nations recognition / rights / justice, and work within the Labour movement. I find that Dimitri Lascaris respects my principles and proposes policies that meet my goals and aspirations for the Green Party of Canada far better than any of the other leadership candidates. Those attributes combined with his dynamic  personality and excellent presence and speaking skills convince me that he will best lead the GPC into further relevance and influence in Canadian politics and a Green, environmentally better future for my grandkids. I hope that all Green Party members will give Dimitri Lascaris the careful, considered look that he truly deserves."

-- Bill McCallum


Ranked Ballot voting for Dimitri and your preferred candidates

A huge THANK YOU! to everyone who has voted and for everyone who is about to vote. 

If you have not yet received an email from vote@simplyvoting.com with your ballot link and password, it's critical that you contact the GPC ASAP at elections@greenparty.ca

This is a ranked ballot vote. Please rank your choices.

If we all voted for our single, favorite candidate and did not rank all of our other preferred candidates, the result would be the same as in any "First Past The Post" election -- a distortion of the proportion of support each candidate has earned from all voters.

The result of ranked ballots is a "consensus” candidate -- the candidate preferred by most electors. 

If we rank Dimitri as our number 1 -- followed by all other candidates in our order of preference -- we'll ensure a proportionate recognition of our choices. That's how the Green Party of Canada chooses a leader who fully represents a consensus among all voters.

If you need a review of Dimitri's policies, you can read all of our platform statements on our web site. They cover all aspects of our society from health to workers’ rights to the economy, foreign policy, Indigenous rights, justice, equity, our party’s internal governance and, of course, the environment. These documents build on the underlying platform of the Green Party as developed over the last 15 years.

Please vote for Dimitri as your number 1 choice, and carefully rank everyone who has worked so hard to represent you. Once you have voted let us know so that we can focus our volunteer efforts on those who have not yet cast their ballot. Text the word "voted" to 647-360-6602 or email the words "I Voted" to info@teamdimitri.ca.

New video shows Dimitri's willingness to answer tough questions with evidence and clarity.
