Peter McCartney -


Peter McCartney grew up west of Calgary, nestled between the majestic Rocky Mountains and the towering headquarters of Canada's oil industry. Wilderness hikes, camping trips and days spent snowboarding inspired a lifelong love of the natural world. An innate sense of justice and a drive to speak truth to power led him to pursue journalism at Carleton University in Ottawa. There he found the story of the century. It's a story that couldn't be harder to tell - an invisible gas building up in the atmosphere that threatens life on Earth as we know it. Peter took it upon himself to learn everything he could about climate change and find ways to tell this story so the public would understand and take action. During a brief stint working overseas after graduation, he felt called back to Canada. He needed to do everything he could to prevent the expansion of fossil fuel exports that imperils the planet and the people who call it home. Now he's thrilled to be working with British Columbians to put a stop to these projects. In his free time, he can be found in his garden, on a mountain or enjoying one of Vancouver's lovely craft beers.
