He is involved in politics to defend the environment and social justice by injecting positive energy into Quebec democracy. He campaigns against unbridled capitalism, for a more equal distribution of wealth and for the protection of the environment on all fronts. He presents a unifying vision in Quebec where diversity is celebrated and through which every Quebecer could have access to quality public health care, whatever their means.
Passionate about nature, Alex loves the outdoors, kayaking, cycling and photography. He lives in the Montreal neighborhood of Pointe St-Charles and is involved on a daily basis in improving the quality of life of Quebecers. For Alex Tyrrell, the struggles for social justice and environmental protection are inseparable and social movements must be supported by progressive political parties. Since 2012, he has run ten times for the Quebec National Assembly in several different regions. In 2018, he put the Green Party of Quebec on the map by running 97 candidates, whose average age was 34, with a 58% majority of female candidates.
