Diversifying the economy is key

Conner Borle

Green Party of Canada

The Green Party of Canada is delighted to announce Conner Borle, a teacher and small business owner from Red Deer, is the party’s candidate for the 2019 federal election in the Red Deer-Mountain View riding.

Borle, who is a co-owner in a local contracting company, is looking for ways to diversify the economy and bring more jobs to our local municipalities and counties.

He believes money in the hands of Canadians is the best way to stimulate and sustain our economy.

“I am honoured to be given the opportunity to work for the people of Alberta; we have the hardest working people I know.

“Albertans should benefit from that work, benefit by having secure, sustainable jobs and economic policies that protect their future.

“When an industry downturn puts 30,000 Albertans out of work, it is time to use the same Prairie tenacity and know-how that got oil out of sand, to find a new way forward,” said Borle during a campaign team meeting.

In addition to running a small business, Borle is also a local teacher. He earned his bachelor of education at the University of Alberta, and won the division nomination for best new teacher in 2017.

A resident of Red Deer since 1999, Borle believes having a representative with the courage and commitment to create change in Canada’s economic and political system will help generate optimism for the future of this incredible nation.
