Anthony Edmonds is a professional engineer with career experience ranging from local start-ups to government projects. He earned his mechanical engineering degree from Dalhousie University. Passionate about politics since his youth, Anthony first volunteered on a campaign in 2006. Since then, Anthony has stood as a Green candidate five times, for both the Green Party of Nova Scotia and the Green Party of Canada. In 2017, he was fiercely proud to be the first Green candidate to ever win the Nova Scotia Student Vote.
Anthony believes that strong communities are built by the people who live and work in them. As such, he has worked to support community arts activities, as well as mental health and addictions resources. In his free time, Anthony enjoys playing drums for charitable events, tinkering with energy efficient DIY projects, and gaming online with friends. In the summertime, you might spot him commuting — or even campaigning — on his electric motorcycle.
Anthony values participatory democracy above all, and he believes in the right of all Nova Scotians to have a truly representative government, which is why he will not rest until our democratic institutions are reformed to better reflect the will of voters. Anthony lives with his wife, Jillian, at their home in Wellington, where they are always close to family.
