Angel Godsoe will represent the Green Party in Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock for the upcoming federal election.

“My interest in running for Member of Parliament for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock began during the last federal election,” she tells the MyHaliburtonNow.com newsroom. She says she was campaigning with the riding’s former Green Party candidate Elizabeth Fraser. “When I witnessed the positive feedback from the public and even the camaraderie of the other candidates, I felt the Green’s time to have a strong presence in this county has come,” she goes on to say.

Godsoe was born in Nova Scotia but grew up in Toronto. The biblical scholar says she believes her party is the best one for the future of Canadians. “A guaranteed livable income, housing, all aspects of health care, clean water and nutritious, accessible, locally produced food should all be basic rights of ours as citizens,” she says. Godsoe adds that she’s interested in international affairs, like human rights and immigration. “I am also concerned about equal representation,” she goes on to say. “I believe our government would be much improved and the confidence of the people regained by electoral reform. We’ve got to put First Past the Post in the past.”

“I’ve always been proud of our Canadian political system and feel strongly led to participate to my best ability in the continuation of our democratic heritage,” Godsoe finishes.
