The Kitchener South - Hespeler Association of the Green Party of Ontario is currently seeking good members of our community wishing to put themselves forward as our prospective MPP candidate. Representing our community and promoting our values of social justice and equity, moving to a strong green economy while living in harmony with our planet that sustains life, is an undertaking which is challenging, but is noble and satisfying.
