BC Greens candidate Françoise Raunet: We need strong, healthy, sustainable communities
BYELECTION 2011: Candidate says that being "neither left nor right" has its appeal.
While much of the media's attention has been focused on the face-off between B.C. New Democratic Party's David Eby and Premier Christy Clark, the B.C. Greens' Françoise Raunet presents herself as a candidate who transcends the usual vicissitudes of right and left.
As an eco-minded minded mother with experience living in Asia, Raunet's ideas will likely strike a chord with many voters in the Vancouver-Point Grey by-election May 11.
Raunet shared her views with VO about the economy, the environment and how her days as a newcomer in a foreign country helped her understand the situation of new Canadians in her riding.
