After a decade spent organizing and volunteering locally, Kyle was drawn in by the Green vision of a sustainable, equitable, and affordable future. As a strong believer in the power of grassroots activism to create change, Kyle understands the key to creating that future will be by confronting the climate and affordability crisis at its source - the industries and norms that put production ahead of the planet, and profits over people.
One of the primary concerns of Burlington residents is the spiralling cost-of-living, whether in housing and rental costs or everyday items like groceries or gas. For many it is simply no longer enough to have a steady job to live comfortably in our community, which is a far cry from how our parents and grandparents grew up.
As a wage earner, Kyle understands the effects this has on how people live, play, and plan out for their futures, with many trapped and stressed by the realities of growing expenses for necessities, such as health care, education, and simply keeping a roof over one's head or their fridges full, all issues compounded by the expanding climate crisis. None of this is random - but the result of choices made by successive governments.
Kyle and Green Leader Mike Schreiner believe we must do better by Ontarians, and that we can if only we put in the effort at all levels of government. He is excited to meet with Burlingtonians at their doorsteps and listen for the solutions they need to have implemented at Queen's Park for a better world.
