Megan Leslie’s environmental commitment traces back to her high school days, when she founded a student environment club and piloted a one-week recycling project in her community. She later created the Affordable Energy Coalition (AEC), which worked to improve the accessibility of energy services and developed some of Nova Scotia’s first comprehensive energy efficiency programs. As an MP, Megan served as NDP Environment Critic and sat on the Environment and Sustainability Committee, calling for studies on rising emissions, water quality, and climate change. She also worked across party lines to support the creation of the Sable Island National Park Reserve and the Rouge National Urban Park. Megan is currently CEO at World Wildlife Fund Canada.
