Lisa Barrett endorses Dimitri Lascaris

Dimitri Lascaris is endorsed by Lisa Barrett, former GPC candidate and Foreign Affairs critic.

Lisa has been a deeply committed environmental, economic and social justice activist, starting in the ‘70s working with the Society for Promotion of Environmental Conservation (SPEC); Labour Economists Forum; Trade Justice Network; Canadian Community Economic Network (CCEDNet); Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA); Code Pink Women for Peace and Rising Tide, Coast Salish Territories. She served two terms on the Board of Vancity Credit Union.

Lisa stood twice in federal elections for the Green Party of Canada in Vancouver Centre in 2020 and West Vancouver - Sunshine Coast - Sea to Sky in 1997, and was the Foreign Affairs critic for the GPC. She was the first Green mayor elected in Canada in the Municipality of Bowen Island and served two terms as mayor, one as councillor. Lisa studied international law with a focus on international trade and human rights. She is a practising civil mediator and arbitrator.

“I’m enthusiastically endorsing Dimitri Lascaris because I’ve seen his courage, compassion, intelligence and integrity in action. Dimitri is a good listener - a crucial quality for any leader. He’s respectful of others and seeks to find common ground. These are important skill sets if we are to unite the party to move politics towards much kinder and inclusive policies rooted in our shared deep concern for the fate of our planet.

“I’ve worked with Dimitri on a number of issues from procedural fairness to international human rights. He’s a tireless worker, always does his research, and presents calmly and confidently in both official languages. I’m confident that Dimitri is the person we need to lead the Green Party in a bold, progressive, positive direction.”
