Green Party of Canada candidates, 1997 Canadian federal election
Scarborough Southwest: David James Cooper
Cooper was a journalist at the time of the election. According to the Toronto Star newspaper, he ran for the Green Party due to a belief that supporting Canada's more established parties would simply encourage "apathy, cynicism, mediocrity and corruption". His campaign called for "environmentally sound programs, local democracy, sustainable development and long-term planning" (Toronto Star, 30 May 1997).
