Joel Hunt is a resident of Bow Island, Alberta, where he moved after growing up in the Fraser Valley in BC. He received a diploma in Building Engineering Technology from the BC Institute of Technology, and has spent 30 years in construction, architecture, and engineering fields, having built everything from houses to government to agricultural buildings.
Joel recently became a LEED Green Associate because of his concern about the effect of the construction industry on our environment. His hope is for governments to step up their reactions to climate change, believing its a moral duty to act when we knew back in the 70s burning fossil fuels was going to lead to catastrophe.
All these factors and more led Joel to run for the Green Party of Alberta - the only party willing to take serious action to avert the disaster we’re speeding towards.
