Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party of Canada and Member of Parliament for Saanich-Gulf Islands, will be reading from and signing her latest book, Who We Are: Reflections on My Life and Canada. She will also be conducting a public talk.
This book is an argument for our future, the future of our children, and our grandchildren and generations beyond. It is about how diminished democracy undermines our best hope to avoid the worsening of the climate crisis, accelerating to threaten human civilization itself. It is a book about how we can make a difference.
In this marriage of memoir and manifesto, Elizabeth provides personal perspectives on her approach to politics, policy, and what it means to be Canadian.

“In this highly readable book, Elizabeth May tells us of a life lived on the edge -- often the leading edge of big issues of the day -- but never at the margins. Others may complain it's not easy being Green, but May has passionately painted her personal and political life in that bold hue. Laced through the book are important warnings about the state of our democracy and our environment, which very much deserve to be heard.”
