“I want to be part of a group that is working to build a society that is more just, more healthy, and more in harmony with the environment.” Georges Laraque
said Georges Laraque. “I believe that the world becomes a better place one person at a time and that every single individual should do their part to make a difference.  Canada has a serious problem with inactivity and obesity that deserves attention.  I look forward to working with the Green Party on making Canada the world's healthiest and most sustainable country,” continued Mr. Laraque.

“As Deputy Leader, Georges will help us realize our goal of promoting active, healthy, sustainable lifestyles as part of the Green agenda,” said Elizabeth May, Leader of the Canadian Greens. “The Green Party would implement a broad-based national program of active living to both lower health care costs and improve the overall health of Canadians. We would also introduce a national standard of daily, quality participation in physical activity for our youth to combat the epidemic of obesity.”

“Of course, the reason I was drawn to the Green Party is that it has excellent policies on a wide range of issues. From standing for social justice to strong fiscal policies, from supporting youth and the arts to eliminating poverty, I strongly believe that Green values and policies are the best for this great country of ours,” said Mr. Laraque." As a spokesperson for TERRASPHERE,which is the world leader in vertical farming and the truest form of self sustaining economic development on the planet, I will also support green technology to help our country."
