Pledge by Green Party Candidates for Parliament
“Whenever I shall have to examine any political or social issue, I swear I will absolutely forget that I am the member of a certain political group; my sole concern will be to ascertain what should be done in order to best serve the public interest and justice.”
— Simone Weil, “On the Abolition of All Political Parties”, 1943
I, Ann Elizabeth Raney, hereby pledge:
TO conduct myself with dignity, showing respect to all living things, including political opponents; to never heckle in Parliament and to maintain an exemplary level of decorum.
TO work hard, and earn the trust of my constituents through honesty, diligence and a commitment to service.
Ann Raney, PEng King-Vaughan Green Party of Canada Wednesday, October 16, 2019
