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.

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.
