Ken Henry - Borderland
1. Why did you decide to run in the Manitoba election?
It was a honour to be asked to run for the Greens in Borderland. This is my home community and neighbours and I’d love to speak up for the people we want to represent. We need action, we have plans, we are not your typical “me vs. you” politicians; we can make a difference for the future, and I Believe the time is now!
2. Why should a voter consider electing you to represent them?
Over the years, I have worked for and with many politicians. I took what I thought of as the best parts of their approach and incorporated those aspects that I believed in. In other words, I’m a student of human beings. I’m very disciplined in that I will do what I need to do to ensure our voice is heard, to make change and most importantly, will always attempt to make people feel safe to voice an opinion or concern and act to address the issues.
3. What key issue(s) / topic(s) will you stand for in your role as MLA, and why are these important to you?
Borderland is Agriculture based, we must endeavor to ensure our farmers can move from fossil fuels to more energy efficient technologies by providing tax breaks and incentives. Moreover, we must ensure our local infrastructure is repaired and most importantly, forward thinking, ie Clean.
I also recognize that there are many Seniors that are worried about their fixed incomes not keeping up with the rising cost of inflation; Our elderly have done their duty for us, it’s time for us to ensure they are comfortable.
Poverty is a root cause of many issues including drug, alcohol and substance abuse; ensuring adequate means to help those stuck in that cycle should be a humanitarian effort. Perhaps more importantly attacking the root cause of poverty with a Basic Income plan can and will improve these issues, saving healthcare costs and leading to positive economic outcomes for people and business.
A Healthy Healthcare system is a very Canadian concept, we must invest in our Emergency centres, Doctor’s, Nurses and Front-line healthcare workers, always!
4. Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
What a great thing to get out, talk to people, hear concerns in an area that I love. Borderland deserves to have a person like me to represent who and what we are. I believe and hear we are ready for that Change and I will work hard for your vote and trust. I’ve always said this, “People in this area have always been good to me and my family; we have an opportunity to truly show Manitoba what Real change looks like and Make change together as one. Merci, Meegwetch and Thanks Borderland, Love You!”
