Simon Rear

Vancouver-Kensington | vke@bcgreens.ca

Raised in B.C., and introduced to hiking and camping at a young age, Simon Rear developed an early appreciation for the beauty and importance of the environment, and the degree to which individual choices and the policies of government can impact it. This fostered a passion for many causes, including ecological responsibility and sustainability, electoral reform, peace, cultural and racial diversity, gender equality, and social justice as a whole. These beliefs, combined with a growing frustration with systemic problems with historical political parties and government, motivated Simon to become a candidate for the B.C. Green Party for the 2017 election, and dedicate himself to serving the public.
