Andy Trotter owns an Architectural Design Firm in downtown Toronto, is a hockey dad, and son of former Liberal MPP James Trotter from the previous riding of Parkdale. Andy began canvassing with his father at the age of 4 and although he has been a strong Liberal all his life he now believes the Green Party offers the best solutions for many of the economic, social, energy based, and climate problems we face today.

Andy is a member of the Association of Architectural Technologists of Ontario with a BCIN. Through his firms he has extensive experience with the Toronto Building dpt. City Planning, Transportation, Urban Forestry, and the Toronto Ravine and Conservation Authority.

Small business, child care, affordable housing, and education are four of his main priorities. Andy has been a small business owner for the past 25 yrs and understands the difficulties of raising children in downtown Toronto and trying to keep a roof over their heads. This city can’t become a haven for the most fortunate. We need to do some serious work enforcing affordable units in all new building development and we need to get serious about rent control. Everyone keeps saying they are going to do something about this and nothing happens we need candidates that won’t back down. Education is the best way to help people achieve better incomes and get ahead. We need to help people of all ages get education, which means we need better day care.     Read more »

A shipping container + solar panels + Queen Street =
Canada’s first off-grid, solar powered, urban shipping container-chic Campaign Pop-up Office

Chris Tolley, Green Party candidate for Toronto-Danforth, launches the first ever off-grid, solar powered campaign pop-up office. Join us:

(south side of Queen, just east of Logan)

Chris Tolley pop-up office

This office, fashioned out of a shipping container, is located on Queen Street East in trendy Leslieville. Campaign staff plan and coordinate Tolley’s campaign from this location.

“My opponents are running multi-story, huge offices with lights blazing. We want to show that you can do things differently. By repurposing a shipping container and adding solar power, we are proving, that with a bit of imagination, you can think outside of the box while working inside of it,” says Tolley.

Toronto-Danforth Green Party office

The launch will include a ‘turning on the switch’ moment where the solar panels come alive and power the space, as well as a short talk from the candidate, Chris Tolley.     Read more »
