The Guelph Greens Federal EDA is pleased to announce two more nominees vying for the role of the 2019 Federal Green Party Candidate, Alex Chapman and Steve Dyck.
Alex is currently the manager of Guelph’s Climate Change Office. He is excited to be a leader in Guelph’s award-winning Community Energy Initiative, helping to found Our Energy Guelph and providing leadership to its Transitional Board, Guelph Energy Managers, the Guelph Energy Efficiency Retrofit Strategy working group, and the Education, Communication, Outreach and Awareness Team. Alex was instrumental in obtaining the following awards for the City of Guelph: the QUEST Community Energy Builder Award, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Sustainable Communities Award, and the GLOBE Climate Award.
“My kids are my everything. I believe we can build them a better world – a restored environment, a prosperous economy, and care for the most vulnerable. Guelph can be a beacon of hope and possibility for the entire nation. That is a message I want to bring to Ottawa,” says Alex.
As founder and President of Guelph Solar, Steve Dyck has been instrumental in creating green economy jobs in Guelph since 2009. As well, Steve is an active member of Fair Vote Guelph and Democracy Guelph, volunteer for Guelph Citizens Climate Lobby and a dedicated member of the Green Party. It is Steve’s dedication to community and future generations that drives his commitment to a sustainable world.
“I am seeking the Guelph Green nomination to build bridges of trust so people can vote for a plan that puts people and the planet first. Canadians deserve elected members of Parliament that listen to their concerns and treat them with respect and honesty. I will work to build these bridges among all Canadians for a prosperous community that protects our shared healthy and sustainable future,” says Steve
