Election 2021 is here —

  Friend, It’s happening! The Liberal government called a federal election today. Now it’s our time. Time for us to rally together and proudly introduce Canadian voters to the Green leaders who will champion real climate action, social justice, true reconciliation and so much more in Parliament…

The big reveal

  Friend, After months of will-he-won’t-he, it now looks certain that Justin Trudeau will call a federal election tomorrow. Why now? Well, it seems the Liberals like the way the polls are looking and they want to take a shot at a majority. Even though we voted just two years ago and Canada is n…

IPCC Report: I know this was a hard read but we can’t let this news extinguish our hope and paralyze action

Hello Friend, Days ago, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) confirmed what we’ve known for a long time: climate change is here, it is caused by humans and we need urgent action to limit the most severe impacts of a warming planet. The IPCC report was very hard to rea…

Where there’s hope, there’s action.

Hello Friend, This year has set heat records. In British Columbia, hundreds — hundreds — of people died in the extreme heat. The communities of Lytton and Monte Lake burned to the ground. Wildfires are still burning out of control. It’s 2021 and the climate crisis is upon us. Now our wind…

Climate action: the time is now, Friend

Hello Friend, Recent events bring home that the impacts of climate change are here now. Canada needs to take decisive action to avoid the worst of the climate crisis. The facts speak clearly: Canada’s current greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) are 21 per cent above 1990 levels. Canada’s GHG…

We want to hear from you: 2021 Green Survey

Dear Friend, As I walk through my neighbourhood, I see people in need, and people determined to help. No matter where you live, I’m sure you’re seeing this too. I see the need for food security in the food bank lineups that wrap around the block. The need for affordable and supportive ho…

Electoral urgency.

  Hi Friend, Like me, you’ve probably seen media reports that the Liberal Party has declared “electoral urgency” to speed up its election preparations. The latest news is that the Prime Minister will send voters to the polls in the fall. All this speculation puts a lot of pressure on our party’…

  Hi Friend, Electing Greens makes all the difference. Not only do they move our country towards progressive policies to launch a green recovery, complete the social safety net and forges a just society, their presence — at any level in Canada — paves the way for even more Greens in Ottawa. The…

When it counts

This is worth reading

Decriminalization. Safe supply. Support.

Hi Friend, The federal government still insists on treating drug use and addiction as a criminal matter. The reality is, addiction is a health issue and criminalization is a key contributor to opioid-related deaths. Opioid-related deaths are at record highs, with 18 people dying each day…

Needed: Climate Leaders

My family’s story.

Hi Friend, My father died one year ago.  He was a resident in a long-term care (LTC) facility in Ontario and, like so many deaths in LTC during the pandemic, his was avoidable. Much of the care of LTC residents is done by their families; facilities are frequently understaffed, and loved o…

Take action for students

Hello Friend, I see it in my community, and I know it’s happening across the country. The pandemic has hit students hard. 207,000 people in Canada lost their jobs last month, and almost half were youth. As the summer job season begins, pandemic restrictions and lockdowns are still in pla…

They said it could never happen – and then it did!

  Dear Friend, It was 10 years ago this week that the voters of Saanich–Gulf Islands made the historic choice to send me to Parliament as Canada’s first Green MP. People said that a Green could never be elected under the first-past-the-post system. They said that we were too idealistic, too new…

Our chance of a lifetime.

Friend, On this Earth Day 2021, we stand at a crossroads. The need for urgent climate action cannot be overstated. Scientists continue to warn about the accelerating pace of global warming, and Canada still does not have a climate plan bold enough to do our part to halt rising global tem…

  Dear Friend, There is no easy way to say this. The deaths in Canada’s long-term care homes amount to a humanitarian crisis.  Thousands of loved ones died in the first wave, and hundreds more have died in the second. And we cannot wait any longer for the federal government to step in. This is…
