Let's grow the Green Party, together!

I’m a long time Green and like so many of you, I want to make this world a better place. My goal as the Leader of the Green Party of Canada is to work with Federal Council and be the strongest advocate for our many amazing candidates.

I’ve proudly been a Green candidate in four elections. I first ran provincially in 2014 for the Green Party of Ontario. My campaign received the fourth most votes of any Green candidate in the province that election.
