Today, I am thrilled to share some exciting news. The Green Party is welcoming a second Deputy Leader to the team!
Daniel Green is a pioneer in environmental research and activism. He has been a leader in the movement to protect our land and water for more than 30 years.
I have known Daniel for decades — through his time at the helm of the Société pour Vaincre la Pollution in his home province of Quebec and his work as a scientific advisor to organizations like the Sierra Club of Canada.
Daniel understands that all citizens have the right to breathe clean air and drink unpolluted water and he has devoted his life to defending these rights.
He has made a profound difference on the issue of environmental contamination — successfully taking legal actions before the Supreme Court of Canada. Daniel was instrumental in causing the corporations involved in the tragedy at Lac-Mégantic to decontaminate the site in 2013 and 2014.
I am deeply grateful to Daniel for his commitment to Green values. He will join Bruce Hyer as our second Deputy Leader.
Take a moment now to join Bruce and I in welcoming Daniel to the Green Party:
Shaun, with incredible team members like Daniel being recruited across the country, I know we are headed for a breakthrough in next year’s election.
Thanks for being with us during this exciting time,
Elizabeth May, O.C.
MP, Saanich-Gulf Islands
Leader, Green Party of Canada
