The federal election campaign has begun, to prepare for the October 21st election. This isn’t the first time Kate Storey has run in an election.

“I’m feeling excited to start this campaign as the Green Party candidate. The Green Party’s been really coming up in the polls, we’re being noticed by more and more Canadians. It feels different this time around.”

Storey is a local farmer who runs a cow-calf operation and produces organic grain. She adds that she’s a grandma and a researcher.

She focuses in on a few issues she’d like to address.

“Here in Dauphin-Swan River-Neepawa, I’m committed to the wellbeing of rural families, rural communities, and the advancement of agriculture. I take a balanced approach and think about economic, environmental, and social consideration. I’m a good listener, and I want to work towards represent people’s views and improve things here in this riding.”

Storey says the greens have an innovative platform to support small and medium businesses, support municipalities, students, and farm families, improve healthcare, end the oppression of the indigenous communities, reduce poverty and protect our water and health.
