Austin Mullins is committed to being the strong, responsive, progressive voice for the citizens of Banff-Airdrie, and a champion for their right to a prosperous and sustainable future.
As Alberta's first Green Party member of parliament, Austin Mullins will be guided by shared values to pursue transformative change. He is energized by the party's fundamental principles of ecological wisdom, non-violence, social justice, sustainability, participatory democracy, and respect for diversity.
Prior to entering politics, Austin studied Political Science at Western University with additional focus on literature, writing, science, astronomy, and women's issues. As a young adult, his decision to run for office was initially motivated by a passion for economic diversification, LGBTQ rights, nature conservation, climate change action, and environmental policy.
Austin's recent work in Canmore's small business and hospitality sector has connected him to people from all walks of life and perspectives from around the world. By meeting with thousands of voters from Airdrie, Banff, Canmore, Cochrane, Crossfield, Rocky View, and the Stoney Nakoda community, Austin has crafted ambitious, realistic, and inclusive policy positions to represent their voices at the federal level.
Austin considers it an honour to respond to the needs of his Banff-Airdrie constituents and help them tackle the challenges they face now and in the future.
