North Vancouver Green Party members have picked veteran broadcast journalist George Orr to lead them into the 2019 federal election.
Local party members voted 57 per cent for Orr at their nomination contest on Saturday.
On policy, Orr said that especially means aggressively targeting the engines of climate change.
“No pipeline,” he said matter-of-factly. “I think we’re coasting towards a climate disaster and anything that can be done to stop that – not slow it down, not address it – but to stop it, has to be done. In big picture terms, we need to get off carbon as fast as we can and we need to move into a sustainable economy.”
