Kevin Stacey, the well known citizen-activist, today announced he is entering the political world as a GREEN candidate in the federal riding of Kings-Hants, challenging Scott Brison.
Kevin, currently works in marketing and sales for the Sherman Hines group of Companies.
Kevin was a youthful pioneer in national efforts to raise AIDS Awareness back in 1984. (See Nick Sheehan documentary "No Sad Songs", the first ever AIDS AWARENESS film made in Canada. As well as MacLean's and numerous other local and national media).
In 1991, (see CBC National Radio feature Documentary Series, "SYSTEM IN DENIAL" by Kelly Ryan/Heather Evans & Laura Lynch), Kevin pressed charges against a sexual abuser from his youth (Cesar Lalo).
Many in the Nova Scotia Justice "System" closed ranks in denial but Kevin successfully pursued the issue. The man was convicted through Kevin's efforts and subsequently convicted from charges arising out of 65 more victims coming forward, eventually (Lalo) becoming "Canada's Most Charged Man". Lalo is still in the news.
Kevin pursued the "System", successfully suing the NS Government for "Vicarious Liability" for all their years of denial and cover-up of the behavior of the perpetrator.
Kevin has also been an advocate on human rights issues, ensuring corporations follow the laws, assisting friends in resolving legal issues by consensus and away from costly court battles. He is known among friends and family as relentless and unswerving in his dedication to right a wrong all the way to a conclusion. "Bulldog tenacity."
Kevin seeks a society of peace, which fosters forgiveness and encourages preventative measures towards the repetition of physical and sexual violence against others.
Kevin says, "People are always surprised when I say I never once lost faith in Humanity through it all - I believe in the power of caring citizens to affect real change - through courage and commitment - not by relying on corporation or union donations, but the method of 'word of mouth' and focusing on positive solutions instead of the wrongs of previous governments. As government is inherently corrupt, the Green Party must get in (Ottawa) and clean up the excessive wastes of the past, and move forward to a more effective system of governing. The GREENS offer Hope to a Troubled World."
