Rachid Jemmah was born in Morocco. He immigrated to Canada in 2003 and has lived in Gatineau since his arrival. He is the father of two young children and he hopes to offer them a viable planet while repairing as much as possible what the previous generations have destroyed. He is involved in politics to promote the environment, social justice and living together. He chose to run under the banner of the Green Party of Quebec because the main goals of the party, namely social justice and the fight against climate change, resonate deeply with him.
Rachid Jemmah is a hardworking man. He has made a career as a manager of several McDonald’s restaurants in the region. In his position, he has been at the forefront of many events in the community including the 2017 floods and the 2018 tornado. These events opened his eyes to the impacts of climate change locally and around the world. He wanted to take action to ensure that concrete actions were taken.
Aware that Quebec politics is sometimes based on division rather than unity, Rachid Jammah hopes to bring a wave of unity to Quebec. He wants Quebec’s diverse communities to live in harmony. He wants to fight against systemic racism, to bring people together around the values of equity, sharing and living together. He wants to dismantle prejudice against immigrants by bringing cultures together.
In his spare time, Mr. Jemmah enjoys hiking in the forest, walking with his children in Gatineau Park and fishing. He is currently studying real estate and hopes to contribute to sustainable development by protecting green spaces.
For Rachid Jemmah, each vote cast on behalf of the Green Party of Quebec helps us to take our place in the public debate and fight for the environment while contributing to the financing of our political party. For all these reasons (and more) Rachid Jemmah would be honoured to have your support in the Quebec general election of October 3, 2022.
