- Toronto—St. Paul’s
Kevin Farmer is a long-time Green, having first run for the party in Toronto—St. Paul’s in 2006. As a person with a sense of humour who is deeply committed to environmental sustainability, he is proud to be “reused” in this pivotal election.
In 2006, Kevin had a front row seat to the beginning of the Harper years. In 2015, he is determined to have a front row seat to a new, better era in Canadian history; one that is dedicated again to the moderate and enduring Canadian ideals of peace, order, and good government.
With the help of the people of Toronto—St. Paul's, where Kevin has lived for many years, he hopes to make some history of his own as the ridings first Green MP.
The Green Party is committed to revitalizing democracy in Canada, and one of many reasons Kevin decided to join the party is that Green MPs are never forced to vote the party line, always being free to put their conscience and constituents first. Representing Toronto—St. Paul's will always be Kevin’s first priority. He will be your voice in Ottawa, not a party spokesperson in our communities.
Kevin has been a radio personality on CIUT 89.5 FM for the last ten years as a regular contributor to The Green Majority; an internationally syndicated, community radio show that is one of Canada's only environmental news shows. He has also been a recurring voice on social, political, and environmental issues in the letters to the editor page of the Toronto Star.
Kevin obtained a degree in software engineering and mathematics from the University of Toronto after transitioning from his successful career as a small business manager. He is immensely proud of this accomplishment, and never regrets any time and effort he devoted to learning, but his hopes for a better future have met our harsh new reality of precarious employment and worsening job quality in an ailing economy. Kevin is also learning how to live with a disability and is all too familiar with the obstacles in the workforce confronting people who are different or differently abled.
Kevin is committed to building a more equal, sustainable, and prosperous future for all Canadians.
The Green Party of Canada is excited to have Kevin Farmer as our candidate in the riding of Toronto—St. Paul’s.
