Mike Schreiner is an outspoken advocate for the environment, local food and water, affordable housing, small businesses, and mental health. He is a proponent of cooperating across party lines and putting people before politics.
Since he was elected as leader of the GPO in 2009, Mike has put the party on the political map and saw it through tremendous growth in membership and public recognition.
He passed Ontario’s first-ever Green law, which protects electric vehicle drivers, while introducing other bills to conserve drinking water, get big money out of politics, and remove routine sick notes.
Mike grew up on a farm, which instilled a passion for protecting people and the planet at a young age. He and his wife Sandy and their two daughters are very active in the local community and spend their free time gardening, hiking, fishing, cycling.
Mike was motivated to enter politics to tackle the climate crisis and income inequality while restoring integrity to our democracy.
