Josue Anderson

“I was born into poverty in Mexico before my father brought us to British Columbia when I was 5 years old. 6 years ago I left UBC with a double major and student debt. I am now retired at 30. I am not a politician, I am a capitalist and I assure you we need progressive socialism in order to save our planet.

Our current political system is woefully ill-equipped to tackle income inequality or climate change. We need to dramatically revolutionize the social systems used in government so that people feel connected and represented.

I am a progressive. I believe BC needs to be moved much further left than the NDP has any interest in moving, while fighting climate change more effectively than the Greens. I also believe in fiscal accountability, operational effectiveness and that human beings operate best in egalitarian networks rather than oppressive hierarchies.

Tommy Douglas is my Canadian hero though Red Green is a close second.

I’m inspired by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, Greta Thunberg, and especially the water protectors at Unis’tot’en Camps.

I have no idea where things are headed for our province or planet but I wholeheartedly believe that wherever we are going, we need to go together.”
