- Mount Royal
Tim Landry was born in Montreal and grew up in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. He moved to St. Laurent in 1977 when he married his wife Elaine, and has lived there ever since. For forty-six years he has worked as a Financial Security Advisor, specializing in living benefits. He has a B.A. and a B.Ed. from St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, NS.
Tim’s interest in politics stems from a desire to build a Canada that responds to the needs of its citizens. He strongly believes that Parliamentarians represent their constituents and not merely the ideas of the Party leadership.
Though Tim understands that defending our environment is very important to maintain our health and our country, he believes there are many other changes that need to occur, which are equally critical. He believes we must go to a system of Proportional Representation to ensure that every Canadian has their vote counted, and even more importantly, that we work to increase voter turnout.
Tim has been active with the Green Party both federally and provincially for several years, and strongly supports their endeavours to build a strong and sustainable Canada. He is active with Partners for Mental Health, an organization attempting to remove the stigma often attached to mental health issues and to reduce the rate of youth suicide.
Tim has been married to the love of his life Elaine for thirty-eight years, together they have a son Jonathan who is now thirty-six years old.
The Green Party of Canada is excited to have Tim Landry as our candidate in the riding of Mount Royal.
