With a background in public health and years of experience in community organizing, Nimâ has a deep understanding of climate justice and bold solutions. There was a time when Nimâ Machouf’s opponent in this race, Steven Guilbeault, would have been a shoo-in to be called a climate champion. Once a climate activist himself, Guilbeault went from first time candidate in 2019 straight to Cabinet. But even with a seat at the most powerful political table in the country, he failed to turn the Liberal ship on climate, and has gone from pipeline opponent to Trans Mountain apologist, and from a fossil fuel fighter to another cog in the Liberal climate delay machine.
