Culture At A Crossroads
Green Party of Ontario Leader Mike Schreiner has long advocated for helping the most vulnerable in our population, but do you know where this passion comes from?
The farm boy from rural Kansas was an altar boy, and grew up in the Catholic church. In fact, he is constantly coming back to the teachings of Jesus when considering what policies he supports in Ontario Legislature. Don't miss how his faith informs his work, and find out if this is more than just moral standards.
Plus, he makes a compelling case for Universal Basic Income, one public education system, and a clean economy.
Schreiner ran for office several times before becoming the first-ever Green MPP in Ontario. He was elected as leader of the Green Party of Ontario back in 2009 and became MPP with a resounding 45% of the vote in his riding in the 2018 provincial election.
