About Jerry

Jerry Kroll was born in New Westminster, B.C. and grew up in Coquitlam working in his family’s greenhouse business. At 22, he opened his own international wholesale and retail flower business. Eight years later, a passion for auto-racing led to a decades-long career in motorsports marketing representing Vancouver’s own Greg Moore. During this time, he also launched an environmentally responsible clothing company, Crailar Technologies right next door to Happy Planet.

As transportation spokesperson for the BC Greens, Kroll brings expertise from his work at the NASA research park, the professional Indy 500 car racing circuit and a deep understanding of cutting-edge technologies that are transforming how we get from point A to B.

Kroll’s newest venture, Electra Meccanica Vehicles Corp, operates 3 locations in the Lower Mainland and is en route to mass produce a low-cost, electric commuter car to help solve traffic congestion and protect consumers from a dying fossil fuel industry.

Kroll’s guiding principles are:

  • Fairness and equality for all

  • Positive environmental impact

  • Long-term financial integrity

Frustrated by the poverty and struggles he sees every day in Vancouver-Mount Pleasant, a riding controlled by NDP for 26 years, he had to take action. Kroll recognizes the challenges we face in Vancouver with affordability, access to housing and three more already crowded schools closing.

For Kroll, the only strong candidate for British Columbia in this election is BC Greens leader Andrew Weaver.

You can meet Jerry every Saturday from 12-2 PM until May 9 at the BC Greens Vancouver Headquarters in Kingsgate Mall, right across from Shoppers Drug Mart.
