Today the newly formed NL Alliance released five ‘Guiding Principles’ which will be the foundation for future written policy and initiatives the movement will form and take on, in its endeavour to change politics in Newfoundland and Labrador and be a true representation for the people of the province.
“These Guiding Principles are the cornerstones for what we will do as an Alliance and how we will develop a platform and policy moving forward, with the help of the people of the province,” said NL Alliance Founder, Graydon Pelley. “With these Principles in mind, we now turn to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador to lend their voice and help us highlight the things that are important and that will put the province back on the right track to be the prosperous place it should be.”
Pelley reiterated that to be a true Alliance, all voices should be heard and listened to, which is one of the biggest goals of the movement, and one of the inspirations of why it was founded in the first place.
“For too long, ideas and decisions have come from a few people lucky enough to get in a room, and they have made the decisions that affect all of us,” Pelley continued. “We say: No more. NL Alliance will be a voice for everyone, and we welcome all input from anyone who is willing to help shape the future of the province in the best interest of all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.”
NL Alliance expresses that they are putting NL first, and hope to start a new conversation around the ideas and concerns of all people in the province. That desire is also expressed in the Alliance’s new brand, which contains the colours of the NL Flag, as well as a conversation balloon in the middle symbolizing the dialogue they hope to facilitate with Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.
“For this Alliance to be successful, we need people who are willing to talk; to bring ideas, and concerns; to stand up and say that politics as it is now isn’t working, and we need to change that. We need people to join the conversation, and help us become a true Alliance,” Pelley said.
NL Alliance welcomes people to submit their feedback through their Facebook page, and web site (www.nlalliance.ca) where people can also sign the petition that will help Elections NL officially recognize NL Alliance as a real option for change.
