Dimitri Lascaris is running to replace Elizabeth May as leader of the Green Party of Canada. The focus of his campaign is to unite the progressive movement and confront injustice. On Tuesday, July 28th at 7:00 pm, Dimitri will join youth activist Aidan Randall for an interview to share his vision. His transformational platform boldly addresses workers’ rights, economic inequality and racial issues while advocating for a just transition to a sustainable economy.
