Dr. Amita Kuttner for Leader of the Green Party of Canada

Please join the party and donate to support Amita.

Justice

As settlers we must take responsibility for our impact on the air, land, and water, and all its inhabitants past, present, and future. We must acknowledge our entire structure of government is colonial including all parties that exist within it. Our goal is clear and common: equity and justice for all people, but the solutions to achieve it can not be prescribed. As Green Party of Canada Leader, Dr Amita Kuttner will prioritize:

  • Decolonization - we must acknowledge and undo systemic violence and inter-generational trauma, changing the structures that exist as we work toward sovereignty for all nations.
  • Social Justice - we must acknowledge and undo systemic inequity, we must govern with compassion as we work toward a society that takes care of all its people because we are all here together.
  • Environmental Justice - we must acknowledge and understand that we are codependent on each other and the world around us, we must put the livability of future generations above the want of today’s privileged, we must stop chasing fantasies of unending economic growth.

Credibility

A truly just, equitable, and sustainable future for all can only be achieved through listening to evidence derived from genuine science. We must start seeing the Earth as a whole and work collectively toward solutions for a world beyond our backyard. As Green Party of Canada Leader, Dr Amita Kuttner will prioritize:

  • Integrity - we must listen to the best available scientific knowledge in everything we do whether it be policy creation or organizational structure.
  • Principled - we must set out our intentions and assumptions, then use evidence to achieve the society we want with policy driven by genuine science and evidence, but founded in clear values.
  • Participatory - we must remain member-driven and grass-roots while capturing the intention and relationship to our shared values, we must be welcoming, safe and inclusive; everybody must always have a say.

Readiness

Our survival demands being prepared for the future to come: the crises and the breakthroughs. We must learn from past trauma if we’re to become resilient to future calamity. We must reject incrementalism and embrace the opportunity of change. As Green Party of Canada Leader, Dr Amita Kuttner will prioritize:

  • Technology - we must ensure technology remains helpful, always used ethically and safely, and must be seen as a tool to be applied wisely, it is not a silver bullet.
  • People - we must ensure our communities are both physically and socially resilient, and that all communities are equipped to support themselves and each other.
  • Planet - we must acknowledge that we are a privileged member of a global community, that the issues we face are much larger than ourselves, and work collectively to prepare for what is inevitable.
