LFK Greens/Anita Payne campaign -- Meet Anita Payne - the real deal

Next Ontario election - June 7, 2018

Given her involvement in so many issues and community causes over the years, many of this area's residents already know Anita. And the LFK Greens are proud to have her as our candidate.
For those who do not, here's the official biography.
Anita Payne is a retired high school science teacher. Born and raised in Toronto, Anita developed a deep connection to her environment while interacting with nature at her cottage.
This inspired Anita to study ecology, to become a teacher, and to become involved in her community. In addition, Anita ran as a Green Party candidate in three previous provincial elections as well as the 2015 federal election.
Professionally, Anita was a long-serving executive member of the Ontario Society for Environmental Education.
Anita has been active in many community and environmental groups over the years in both Lanark County and Stratford.
Since returning to Lanark County in 2011, Anita has participated in climate marches and volunteered with Fair Vote Canada, her lake association, Climate Reality, Citizens' Climate Lobby, the Guatemala Stove Project and Canadian Federation for University Women Perth and District.
Anita has two grown children and one grandchild.
She promotes active living to maintain health and reduce her environmental footprint. Anita grows as much food as she can and is also a quilt artist.
