Cam Brewer

As a community organizer, lawyer, entrepreneur, accountant, author, and professor, Cam has the leadership it takes to bring people together to harness innovation, find collaborative solutions, and implement a progressive economic, environmental, and social justice agenda.

Under Cam’s leadership, the BC Greens will expand support across the province, attract strong candidates, and offer BC voters a practical plan for the transition to a green and just economy and society. The climate emergency, rising inequality, and stalled Indigenous reconciliation demand action. In the face of pandemics and economic uncertainty, Cam and the BC Greens can unite diverse perspectives that open up lasting opportunities while building resilience for future generations.
