Dear PEO East Toronto Chapter Member,

REGISTRATION: Via Eventbrite

Keynote Address:

Peter Tabuns, MPP, Toronto-Danforth (Here attached is his picture)

Peter Tabuns has a long record of change. Winning a by-election in 2006 and re-elections in 2007, 2010, 2014 and 2018 Peter brings fresh new ideas to Queen’s Park on fighting climate change, renewable energy, and job creation.

Peter is leading the change to a new energy economy, in part thanks to his experience as Executive Director of Greenpeace. He also pioneered energy efficiency in Toronto in the 1990s, often working closely with the Carpenters’ Union. For years, Peter has broken down old barriers between unions and environmentalists. He brings people together around new ideas that create good jobs, cut emissions and help us catch up to new energy economies around the world.

Before joining Greenpeace, and increasing its profile, Peter was a City Councillor. At city hall, he helped keep valuable services public and was ahead of his time in championing smoke-free restaurants and bars.

He’s also worked in health care, organizing government relations for the Ontario Nurses Association; and early in life, took an active role in the organizing drive, by the Canadian Labour Congress, to unionize white-collar workers during the 1970’s.
