About the Green Party of Ontario

The Green Party of Ontario is independent yet is philosophically aligned with other green parties in Canada and around the world. The GPO is fiscally responsible, socially progressive and environmentally focused. We begin with the basic premise that all life on the planet is interconnected and that humans have a responsibility to protect and preserve the natural world.

our vision

Jobs. People. Planet.

The Green Party of Ontario’s goal is to build on the work people like you are already doing in your community, working to make positive change, overcoming social barriers and improving the health of each other and our planet.

Working together, we can build a future for our province that is good for us now and for generations to come.

Get Involved

The Green Party of Ontario is largely powered by volunteers. Volunteering is a great way to meet people, and to turn climate anxiety into action. Volunteers can be part of our team from anywhere in Ontario. With your help, we can make a difference.

      Support the Campaign

      The Green Party attracts thoughtful, passionate people who care about the future. To win, we also need to fundraise. We plan to raise more than $100,000 to run a high-quality campaign for the next provincial election. Neither the media nor most people take a candidate seriously unless they can raise serious money, because this is an easy metric of who can win.

      The climate and environmental crises have not slowed down just because we are also in a pandemic, which environmental destruction made more likely. If you can afford it, please contribute to my campaign today, using the Donate button.

      Because of generous provincial tax credits, a donation of $100 before the end of December will yield a $75 tax credit on your 2020 tax return, for a net cost to you of only $25. Please note that, under Elections Ontario rules, contributions may only be made by individuals normally resident in Ontario, using their own funds.

      The Donate button sends funds to my campaign via the Green Party of Ontario. The annual maximum that you can give to the Green Party of Ontario in 2020 is $1,625. If you are one of the remarkable people who have already hit that ceiling, (thank you!) you can also give up to $1625 directly to riding associations. To donate to my campaign without having the funds go through the Green Party central office, please mail a cheque to 506 Clinton St., Toronto, Ontario, M6G 2Z4, made out to University-Rosedale Green Party of Ontario CA.Cheques dated and post-dated in 2020 will receive a 2020 tax receipt.

      I can’t do this without you. Will you help me win University-Rosedale? Thank you!

      Attacking nature makes us less safe

      Despite province-wide opposition, the Ford government has again defied your Environmental Bill of Rights, and used a Budget Bill to gut crucial environmental protections. Sneaking an attack on conservation authorities into a Budget Bill is undemocratic.

      Why am I running for the Greens in University- Rosedale?

      Thank you for the overwhelming warm welcome for my decision to run for the Ontario Green Party in the 2022 election. After 45 years of being meticulously non-partisan, I can no longer stand aside and merely shout at the radio when I learn about yet another environmental collapse or government outrage.
