SAULT STE. MARIE– The Green Party of Ontario is proud to announce that Keagan Gilfillan has been nominated as its candidate for Sault Ste. Marie ahead of the 2022 provincial election.
“I’m extremely proud to call Sault Ste. Marie home. And I’m now looking to offer back to the community that has already given me a lot,” Gilfillan said. “Through the creation of inexpensive housing, a people-centered approach to healthcare, and holistic environmental stewardship, we are able to construct a greener, more caring future for everybody.”
“Keagan is committed to making a higher future for the people of Sault Ste. Marie.,” Ontario Greens Leader Mike Schreiner said. “The hardest challenges facing Ontario just like the climate and housing crises are hitting young Ontarians the toughest. We’d like youth voices like Keagan’s on the table if we wish to construct a greener, more cost-effective, and healthier Ontario.”
Before starting his Honours B.A. in Political Science at Algoma University, Gilfillan worked in various roles in the development industry where he gained invaluable experience that has helped shape his worldview, particularly on the necessity to construct more cost-effective housing.
Gilfillan often spends his free time exploring the various local trails and parks in Sault Ste. Marie, which has helped strengthen his bond with the community and nature.
