The Green Party announced that Matt Richter has been nominated as its candidate for the Parry Sound-Muskoka riding ahead of the 2022 Provincial election. 

Matt currently serves as Shadow Critic for Education for the Green Party.

Richter says he’s running because we need more greens at Queen’s Park to fight for the issues that matter to Ontarians. He says “Our environment and the economic recovery of Ontario are not separate issues. The Greens have a way to provide a greener and a more caring economic recovery and I want to be a part of that.”

Richter says the Ford government is too eager to do away with environmental protections that serve to prevent flooding and climate change.

Mike Schreiner, leader of the Green Party of Ontario says “Matt brings a lot of determination and energy to the Green Party and I’m happy to see him nominated.  As a party we are growing in membership and outreach and I’m proud of the record we’ve set at Queen’s Park so far.”
