Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Adriane Carr (born 1952) is a Canadian academic, activist and politician with the Green Party in British Columbia and Canada. She was a founding member and the Green Party of British Columbia's first leader from 1983 to 1985, whereafter the party abolished the leadership position until 1993. In 2000, she became the party's leader again, and she is generally credited with helping to bring the party major party status. In the 2005 provincial election, she received in excess of 25% of the vote in her home riding of Powell River-Sunshine Coast. She resigned her position in September 2006 to become one of two deputy leaders of the Green Party of Canada now led by her political ally and long time friend Elizabeth May. Although she is now intending to run federally (for Vancouver Centre) she continues to work and support the Green Party of British Columbia. Carr was born in Vancouver and raised in the Lower Mainland and Kootenays. She earned a Master's degree in Urban Geography from the University of British Columbia in 1980 and went on to a teaching career at Vancouver Community College.show more
