Bio - Angela Penna,
Vice-President of the Green Party of Saskatchewan
I am 36 years of age, married
with two children, aged 12 & 13.
I am returning to Saskatoon from 8 years in Southern Ontario where
I was involved in educating children. I worked with Learning through
the Arts, writing original curriculum and I founded and taught at a
home schooling cooperative. I was awarded the YMCA Canada Peace Medal
for a Curriculum that was implemented in the Public School System in
Hamilton, Ontario, as a positive post 911 response.
Upon return to Saskatchewan,
I was inspired by Dr. Helen Caldicott’s
visit to Saskatoon in March 2007. She spoke about how we all need to
do our part for the environment. My parents have been involved as activists
in the province since I was young. I see my involvement now as a passing
of the torch. My own children are asking big important questions and
I feel compelled to be apart of the solution rather than a passive
spectator of the growing problems of today. Dr. Caldicott, my parents
and my concerned children are all the inspiration I need to feel empowered
in a disempowered democracy.
The Saskatchewan people
have been made to believe that there are only two parties to vote
for - neither of which have any solutions
to the real issues of today. Solutions do exist and we need to communicate
them to the people of this great province.
We need to win seats in the upcoming election and I truly believe
this is attainable and I will work diligently for this goal.
By communicating the solutions
of the Green Party to the Saskatchewan people, we’re not only giving them a political choice - we’re
giving them a vision of hope. We’re more than a political party,
we are apart of a world-wide historical movement that will transform
all of our lives for generations to come.
I am proud to be a part of the Green Team and I humbly invite you
to join us and help spread our message of hope to the people of Saskatchewan
and the world.
We’re not right - We’re not left - We’re
out in front! Vote Green Today!
