About the Author
My name is Josh and I was born and raised near Vancouver, British Columbia. I have studied and followed Canadian and international politics for over 15 years. Currently I live in Langley, BC with my newly married wife. I believe strongly that every day Canadians who work for a living and want to see a better, fair planet for everyone should work together create the world we need, not the one we have.
I firmly believe in expanding workers rights with unions, cooperative workplaces, and government programs. LGBTQ+ rights are important and we must fight to eliminate all forms of discriminations and violence towards the LGBTQ+ community. Systemic racism and xenophobia of all forms must be opposed and dismantled. Science and rational thinking must be promoted and the climate crisis is and urgent and must be reversed.
