Wayne James is an organic farmer who lives near the town of Beausejour, Manitoba.

Wayne is a graduate of the University of Winnipeg. He has worked in television as a producer, director and writer and later as a freelancer in theatre and film. Wayne has also worked as an advanced driving instructor, a public speaker, and a heavy equipment operator.

Wayne continues to live in the house he grew up in and farms the same land he explored as a child. One day, while hauling some pesticides out to the field, James realized the impact those chemicals must be having on the environment. That moment marked a change in perspective for him and he quickly transitioned to organic farming.
Some of Wayne's interests include folk music, aviation, storytelling, sports, and social democracy.

The Green Party of Canada is excited to have Wayne James as our candidate in the riding of Selkirk—Interlake—Eastman.
