The Green Party of Saskatchewan is the only party where the election platform is developed and formally approved by the full membership of the GPS meeting at its Annual Convention.  While other Parties have top leadership meetings in back rooms with advertising experts and opinion poll results to determine election platforms, the GPS creates its platform based on The Founding Principles and Policy Resolutions of the GPS.  Since its founding as the New Green Alliance in 1998, progressive "Greens" have applied "green" social, environmental and economic principles to the concerns of Saskatchewan people.  This has resulted in sound and progressive policies which would be acted on by a Green Party of Saskatchewan government.  While the eight platform statements listed above are the focus of the 2007 campaign, we call the attention of Saskatchewan people to previous platforms and all of our policies since 1998.  All of these will tell you who we are, what we believe, and what we would do if you trust us to be your government.
