Green Party calls for review of lobster pricing mechanism.

The Green Party is calling for a thorough review of the systems which determine the price which is offered to fishers for lobster on PEI. In the short term the Green Party is calling on the Provincial government to conduct an inquiry into possible price fixing and settle this issue once and for all. In the longer term the Green Party would like to see the Provincial government brand and promote the excellence of our seafood and agricultural products - including arguably the best lobsters in the world - far better than they currently do.

Green Party remains committed to “doing politics differently”

The Green Party has reiterated its concerns about the potential corrupting influence of unchecked corporate donations on the political process.

“There is a deep cynicism about politics today, and part of that stems from the view that there is corporate influence on political decision making. Limiting donations from corporations is the only way to remove this perception,” stated Green Party leader, Peter Bevan-Baker.

Green Party seeks solutions to overall cost of governance rather than political posturing on MLA salaries.

The Green Party of Prince Edward Island is concerned that focusing on MLA salaries obscures the bigger picture - the overall cost of government here on PEI. There has been a lot of posturing from other parties on this issue as they try to endear themselves to voters, but until any of them shows a clear understanding and commitment to dealing with the overall structure and cost of government, their words are largely meaningless.
