Power Smart, Janzen Smarter

Blogging Green candidate Scott Janzen made use of his equal billing on CPAC's Burnaby-New Westminster riding profile this weekend, explaining what led to him running as a Green, where he stands on the issues, and what it is like running for a party that many people count out of the race before things begin. Janzen, a BC Hydro employee, explained his contradictory job working for BC Hydro's Power Smart program, which encourages customers to be wiser about their use of energy. In a nutshell, Janzen's job is to encourage people to use less of his company's product. Janzen was able to explain how this was not only good for the customer and the environment but also for BC Hydro, as less energy being used means less dams having to be build, which keeps costs down for the power company.

Along with Janzen in Burnaby-New Westminster, the Green Party is running flower-shop owner and former PC and mayoralty candidate Ray Power in Burnaby-Douglas.

Good for Janzen. Burnaby needs a decent Green candidate who can pull some votes from the enviro wing of the NDP.

The NDP should have paid attention to the Green votes in the late 1980's, but did not.
