Canada's next Parliament will make decisions that affect Canada for generations to come. That's why it means so much to me to have the endorsements of younger leaders in our community, not just people who are decades into their career or retired after a lifetime of accomplishments (but hey, those are great too!).
I am pleased to receive the enthusiastic endorsement of Kyle Empringham, co-founder of The Starfish Canada. I met Kyle at this year's Top 25 Environmentalists Under 25 event at Telus World of Science.
"The Starfish Canada celebrates and amplifies environmental, solutions-based stories across the nation, with a focus on youth-based initiatives."
Kyle lifts up young leaders in our country through promoting youth journalism and engagement on environmental issues and by recognizing important contributions emerging leaders are making in their communities or abroad. The Top 25 Under 25 recognition evening was one of the most inspiring events I have been to in a long time, filling me with hope for Canada's future.
"I'm happy to support Wes Regan as the best choice for Vancouver East. Wes is the perfect example of community-based, environmentally-driven leadership that we need in our federal government. He's a new generation of leadership that is committed to meaningful action on climate change. I'm excited to see how Wes can support and represent our collective voice in parliament."

Thank you Kyle, I am excited to be a champion for younger generations and the environment in Parliament as we work to create a vibrant low-carbon economy to ensure climate justice and intergenerational equity in the decades ahead.
