Elizabeth is an author, activist, and lawyer who has served as the leader of the Green Party of Canada since 2006, the Member of Parliament for Saanich-Gulf Islands since 2011, and founded and served as the Executive Director of the Sierra Club Canada. Prior to that, as a senior policy advisor, May was deeply involved in the negotiation of the Montreal Protocol treaty to protect the ozone layer, and was instrumental in the creation of several national parks, including Gwaii Haanas / South Moresby.

Amongst many accolades, May was made an officer of the Order of Canada in 2005; was named by the United Nations as one of the leading women environmentalists worldwide; was recognised by fellow MPs as Parliamentarian of the Year 2012, and Hardest-Working MP in 2013. She is also the longest serving female leader of a Canadian federal party.

Jeremy Valeriote is the returning BC Green’ candidate for West Van-Sea to Sky, having narrowly lost in 2020 by just 60 votes (out of 25,000). Trained as an engineer, Jeremy specialized in environmental assessment and restoration. He served as an elected municipal councillor in Gibsons, and has also worked in local government.

Jeremy decided to run for the BC Greens because he wants to fight for a better future for his twin daughters. He believes the Greens offer a fresh way of doing politics: collaborative; evidence-based; purpose-driven; which will ultimately strengthen democracy in our province, and restore an appreciation of the interconnectedness of human well-being and planetary health.

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.
