Your BC Greens Candidate for West Vancouver - Capilano, Dr. Michael Markwick, will be at St. David's United Church from 2:30 - 3:30 for a meet and greet. This event is a great opportunity to get to know your candidate and share your vision for the community that you love and live in. He wants to hear from you.
Michael Markwick's examination of the impact of the "war on terror" on democratic communication and pluralism earned him a doctorate with distinction from Simon Fraser University. He was mentored by Rosemary Brown as her Executive Assistant when she was Chief Commissioner of the Ontario Human Rights Commission.
Markwick is faculty in the School of Communication at Capilano University and taught at Simon Fraser University. He was also the president of the B.C. Freedom of Information and Privacy Association.
A long-time resident of West Vancouver-Capilano, Markwick’s work in creating solutions for housing security, combating human trafficking, and democratic community organizing lead the District of West Vancouver to grant him its 2016 Community Award. He has also been named "Life Changing Professor" at Capilano University.

Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
