On behalf of the Sudbury Federal Green Party Association and the Green Party of Canada, I'd like to welcome you to the Sudbury Green Party's website, and to this, the Executive Blog. It's an exciting time to be involved in the Green Party federally, with three by-elections having just been called, and with talk of a general federal election taking place this fall. Locally, our Party continues to build upon our successes in the community, as we reach out to like-minded Sudburians.

There's a lot that you can do to help us, of course. With regards to the by-elections, Sudbury Green Party members are currently undertaking phone canvassing, calling into the Guelph and Ville Marie ridings on behalf of the Green candidates there. When the general election is called, of course, we'll be in need of finding volunteers who can give some time to assist with electing a Green candidate here in Sudbury. And if you can't volunteer, there are still ways of helping out: perhaps you can take a lawn sign, or make a contribution to our candidate's campaign.

Or perhaps you'd like to become involved with ogranizational aspects of the Party locally. We're always looking for people who are able to devote time and energy to planning and participating in local events. Or maybe you'd like to chat about policy with others who share your views! There's a lot of ways of getting involved.And since you're reading this online, I'm going to suggest that the best way to start becoming involved is to send us an email. Tell us a little bit about yourself, and what it is that you'd like to become involved in. One of our friendly Executive members will be in touch with you right away!

In the meantime, do check back here every now and then, or join the Green Party - Sudbury group on Facebook to receive notices about upcoming events.If you're not ready to make a committment of any sort at this time, that's fine as well. Just remember to get out and vote on election day, for whatever candidate you wish to support!
