UPDATE: 70 Signatures Remaining

Hello friends,

Considering two days ago we had twenty signatures, today was a great day! I’m happy to say we made serious progress in the signature front and are now halfway there. As I mentioned yesterday, Elections Canada requires I have 150 Signatures with my Candidate Papers. These signatures on paper respect my right to run so that the Oakville North – Burlington district can have a Green option for voters come election day.

At the moment, the situation is still very urgent. I now have just over 80 signatures but we are now down to less than 40 hours to the deadline.

If you live in the district of Oakville North – Burlington and believe the upcoming election should have a green candidate option, I need your signature.

The Call

Hello World,

Last Sunday I was enjoying my cottage vacation in Southampton, Ontario eating my breakfast bagel and looking out at lake Huron when all of a sudden I hear Justin Trudeau in the background making an announcement. Those words instantly took my mind off the calmness of the lake the family time with my children and the vacation in general. I couldn’t believe it. I know there had been a lot of talk about a snap election but I kept telling myself “there is no way he’s going to call it in the middle of all this mess”. Not to mention the mess he still has to clean up for himself and the Liberal party in general. Needless to say, I was not impressed at all and for me, this was the last nail.

So what am I going to do about it? Well, anything I can! Looking at the various parties over the years and calling around, discussing with friends and family, I realized there were, at the time, no declared candidates for my riding or neighbouring ridings yet. This prompted me to ask myself, “Is it time to jump in? Is it time to do my part?”. After reaching out to a past candidate in my area I was asked to jump in by local leadership. So, this is happening. I am going to take the leap into a public role on behalf of my family, community, country and planet.

I guess you could say I heard “the call” and as of yesterday, I’m happy to announce that I am now the 2021 Green Party of Canada Candidate for the riding of Oakville North – Burlington. I know I’m coming into this race over a week late but that is OK. It will not deter me I hope it does not deter you. I do this not because it’s easy or hard but because it is the right thing to do. I am ready to serve you and I hope I can count on your support.

Over the next few days, I will be assembling a team and ramping up a campaign. We are in a crunch, so NOW is the time to do your part and join me and the Green Party. We need all hands on deck if we are going to rival the Liberals or the Conservatives. Our communities, country and planet need us now to do the right thing and I believe with your help we will get there. Good luck to my opponents in this political election who have stepped up to represent their parties. It is not easy to make this choice and you have my respect. I look forward to meeting with each of you on the campaign trail and debates. It is my hope to connect every voter in the riding over the next 4 weeks.

Cheers,
Bruno Sousa

The Roadmap

Hello World,

This Sunday, we are super excited to share with you our roadmap to Start A Better World. This outline has been created to communicate how we are building and deploying the world’s first, true, social-good platform. It identifies and defines our multi-phase vision along with the mission milestones and dates for our first phase which seeks to reach the audacious goal to generate and apply $1B in funds towards membership endorsed critical causes. Further, we plan to scale funding by a factor of 10 between phases with the goal to raise $10B in Phase 2 and $100B in Phase 3 at which point all the planned features are available.

As you can see, the potential for social-good is tremendous and it equally facilitates and ensures benefit to all members. The platform has been conceived during one of humanity’s most trying periods and it has been specifically designed to provide the most incentive to all those, that due to CoVID-19, have had their business or employment opportunities impacted including all recent graduates. We believe it can positively impact the lives of ~800K Canadians and ~170M other economically disenfranchised worldwide users. 

To help us Start A Better World, please share this post and sign-up for free at principeum.co.

Thank you,

The Venture

Hello World,

Last week I embarked on the quest to launch a new venture with the singular aim to Start A Better World. This audacious vision ultimately seeks to create a self-sustaining online global community that beneficially impacts critical issues in our social and natural environments. At its core, the endeavour will provide users with the crucial means for communication, collaboration and commerce. Yesterday, October 20, 2020, I took the first of many steps and incorporated what will hopefully be a vessel for progress. Today, it is my privilege to introduce to you Principeum. May it be a foundation of principles and a place of new beginnings. 

Next week we start the important work of developing the platform’s first beta release. To achieve the best, we will need input from the best and so I invite you to join our ranks and become one of our first supporters. We need leaders and talented individuals from all walks of life to register. If you’re a true and just citizen of Earth, who is committed to affecting positive change for a brighter future now is the time to act and I call on you to start making a difference today by simply sharing this message and enrolling for free at principeum.co. I know that together we will Start A Better World.

Thank you,

The Vision

Hello World,

It seems to me that we can no longer leave the betterment of our society and ecosystems to our governing bodies alone. The task is simply too great and we no longer have the luxury of time. To address this, over the next few weeks I’m modifying my business structure and making preparations to launch a new venture with the singular aim to Start A Better World. This entity’s primary focus is on developing and launching service platforms that foster and empower new digital communities to thrive and drive social and environmental progress. I’m confident that together, we will build a greater future through our collective experience, knowledge and effort. By uniting us online, under one banner, this initiative grants us the vision, voice and vigour to affect positive change.

I know I can’t do this alone and I will without a doubt require much support. As a first step, I’m looking to build a dream team of passionate pioneers that are compelled to make a difference. If you feel you would like to contribute or be part of this initiative I would very much welcome a chat to discover how your experience and wisdom can help shape this vision. I truly believe that together through cooperation and technology we can Start A Better World. 

To be continued…

The Commitment

Hello World,

In 2007 I became an entrepreneur with the intent to create a stable and secure future for my new and growing family. It has been a very enlightening 14 years, full of ups and downs. I’m humbled and grateful for all it has provided in both professional and personal growth. The road has not been easy and that’s ok, after all, you can’t forge strong steel without a great deal of pounding and heat. The truth is, hardships endured result in compelling resolve and appreciation for well-being. When considering the lives of others, I’m filled with a sense of fortune, privilege and potential which powers my newfound purpose and commitment to influence positive change through my business endeavours.

I don’t say this to belittle any work my teams and I have accomplished to date with our clients and our communities. I’m very proud of our people and the solutions that both bitQ and the Brockton Collective have provided over the years and I feel honoured to work with so many great leaders and talented individuals. I know that through our knowledge, time and commitment we have already positively impacted many people’s lives. However, I’m certain that we can do more, and I believe there is a way that we can Start A Better World while doing it.

To be continued…

The Potential

Hello World,

The past 6 months have been a difficult time for everyone, some more than others, and I’m certain COVID-19, along with everything else that 2020 has thrown at us, has caused many of us to rethink or reassess our way of life. During this time I have contemplated my life’s journey. Through much critical and compassionate introspection of my past and present, I’ve concluded that I have the potential to be and do more in the future. Not only for myself, my family or my neighbour but also for our community, our country and most importantly our planet. My stark realization is that I can no longer sit by and watch our social and natural environments continue to deteriorate.

Please let me be clear, I don’t mean to disparage the many great things that humanity has achieved to date but there are still many greater achievements to be reached by our collective efforts on the path to excellence. I know there are others out there already doing what they can, and I applaud and follow their lead. Their deeds have empowered me to take action and I hope that in turn, I will empower others to realize their capacity to Start A Better World. I believe, those who have the potential to affect positive change should also embrace the duty to do so.

To be continued…
