Joan is a pillar of the BC climate justice movement. She has led many mobilizations against the Trans Mountain pipeline. As a lifelong advocate for Indigenous rights and a member of the Penticton Indian Band and the Okanagan Nation Alliance, Joan will fight to tackle the climate emergency in a way that affirms Indigenous rights and sovereignty. She’s going up against Conservative incumbent Dan Albas. With wildfires burning across the riding this election, Joan can directly challenge his record of climate denial. This spring Albas tried to kill Canada’s climate accountability bill after an unsuccessful push to let fossil fuel lobbyists rewrite the legislation. Electing Joan Phillip would unseat a climate denier, and put a true climate champion into office.
We’ve endorsed Joan Phillip as a Game Changer Climate Champion. Game Changers are activists and social movement leaders who are running for office to address the roots of the climate crisis, inequality, and colonization. If elected, these Game Changers could transform Canada’s political status quo.
