This election, Greens are lending their votes to Avi Lewis

We are people who have voted for, volunteered for, or sought office with Canada’s Green Party. We have an urgent message for all climate-concerned voters in the riding of West Vancouver –Sunshine Coast – Sea to Sky. 

We know you’re feeling deeply anxious about the climate emergency. So are we.

Unfortunately, in this election the federal Green Party is in disarray: its resources are exhausted and the leadership in turmoil. But in this riding, there is an indisputable climate champion on the ballot. Someone who is a dedicated climate justice activist and a truth teller who’s never shied away from taking bold, principled positions.

That person is NDP candidate Avi Lewis.

Avi has a 30-year public record of speaking truth to power and holding Ottawa politicians to account. He has a deep understanding of the climate emergency and has earned the enthusiastic support of movement leaders like Bill McKibben and David Suzuki. He is a key figure behind The Leap movement and made a film with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to bring the vision of the Green New Deal to life for millions. He will be a strong voice within the NDP to push for more rapid and ambitious climate action. And this next parliament - especially if it’s a minority - could determine the fate of our climate response.

If you believe we need to shake up the entire political establishment and tip the scales for people and the planet, lend Avi your support. Send him to Ottawa as your representative in Canada’s 44th Parliament.  

We’re out of time. If you support Avi and have voted, volunteered, or run for the Greens in the past, please join us and add your name below.
