Leader Peter Bevan-Baker
Peter Bevan-Baker arrived at the Prince Edward Island Legislative Assembly in May 2015, following a long and winding road that began in Aberdeen, Scotland, moving through Newfoundland and Ontario before arriving in Hampton, Prince Edward Island, in 2002.
On the way, he studied music, became a dentist, married “the kindest person I’ve ever met,” had four children, wrote six plays and a musical, and ran as a Green Party candidate in ten elections before finally succeeding in May 2015, when he became the proud MLA for Kellys Cross-Cumberland. In doing so, Peter became the first Green Party member of the Provincial Legislature.
On April 23, 2019, Peter was re-elected in the newly established district of New Haven-Rocky Point, and with a caucus of eight, he formed the first Green Official Opposition in Canada.
Peter has always been active in his community, contributing in various ways. Whether it was directing plays at his local elementary school, chairing the board of the Victoria Playhouse, or coaching soccer, he always felt and acted on a strong sense of community responsibility.
In the 2023 provincial election, Peter once again ran for office and successfully won re-election. The Green platform focused on issues such as healthcare, climate change, and economic growth, and resonated with Islanders across the province. Thanks to his tireless efforts and unwavering commitment to his constituents, Peter Bevan-Baker remains a respected and influential leader in Prince Edward Island politics.
