Lorna Mungur has a BA in History and International Development and a Masters in History from McGill University. For her Masters, she specialized in the illegal slave trade in East Africa at the end of the nineteenth century. As a student of history, Lorna pursued an interdisciplinary approach that saw history as on ongoing interaction between human and natural forces such as geography, climate, disease and the environment. Lorna’s studies made her increasingly aware of the impact the environment has on human societies and reinforced her belief that bold climate action is required to avoid more catastrophic impacts affecting Canadians.
The causes that are important to Lorna include universal accessibility to education, climate change, and women’s issues. She was also a volunteer for Oxfam-Québec and participated in Canada World Youth, where she worked in schools in a small rural community in Brazil.
Lorna was born in Mauritius and immigrated to Quebec with her parents in 1990. She grew up in Sainte-Rose, Laval, a neighbourhood that is now a part of the riding of Marc-Aurèle-Fortin. Lorna is proud to be a candidate for the Green Party in the riding where she grew up.
The Green Party of Canada is excited to have Lorna Mungur as our candidate in the riding of Marc-Aurèle-Fortin.
