Camille Labchuk Green Party candidate in byelection
'Strong politicial conscience' comes from mother's environmentalism, says Labchuk
Labchuk, the daughter of the former leader of the P.E.I. Green Party Sharon Labchuk, is now a lawyer focusing on criminal defense and animal rights law.
"Well I think growing up with an environmentalist mother, gave me a pretty strong political conscience from day one," said Labchuk.
"I was home-schooled, so I spent a lot of time with my mother going to political meetings, campaign meetings with Earth Action and Eco-PEI … and I want to carry on that work now in my professional life."
Four federal byelections take place Monday, two in Ontario and two in Alberta.
