Chris knows politics and cares about the environment, and that's important to me!

Chris Alders is a hard worker, strongly dedicated to the Green Party.

Chris Alders is a committed Green Party member. Chris proficiently promotes the principles of the green; namely social justice, environmentalism and nonviolence. As a Green Party member Chris believes that these issues are inherently related to one another as a foundation for world peace. Chris is an honest, concerned and reliable man and would serve the Green Party well in Edmonton! Chris has supported and nurtured the formation of a local group The Sustainable Food and Urban Agriculture Network which has promoted urban agriculture in Edmonton. All the best Chris!

I’m really excited to give my support to the City Centre Green Party and Chris Alders. Living in the City Centre area since 2011(for the most part). The green space and environment play an important roll within my life. Not only to sustain life but my personal interests in endurance sports rely on it! As a small business owner and community outreach leader I feel it’s important that we put our environment first and everything else will follow. I know Chris and the Greens will stick up for the environment and future generations interests. Within this process it will bring new and exciting opportunities for Albertans. I’m really looking forward to seeing the greens grow within Alberta and help change the shape utilizing more sustainable concepts!

Don't let the mischievous smile and sense of humour fool you. Chris Alders is entirely serious about better political representation for Canadians. I have known Chris for over a decade and worked closely with him on a couple of political campaigns. He is dedicated, hard working, very knowledgeable about political power and strategy, and in it for the right reasons - he cares, and has the skill sets necessary to continue shaping Canada's future. Edmonton - City Center is lucky to have him!
Jan Meyerowitz, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia
I have known and liked Chris for 27 years; Chris is a very bright, compassionate, and able individual. He possesses a rare and admirable combination of the principled and the pragmatic. In particular, Chris has lived his life dedicated to the belief in and promotion of democratic values in their fullness of open public discourse and respect for variety and dissenting views. I regard Chris as well-qualified for public office, and heartily commend him to you.
Dr. Peter Buker, Corran Ban, Prince Edward Island
Chris would make the best possible MLA for the people of Edmonton-City Centre. He's smart, caring and deeply committed to the public good. He would be a true public servant. He would bring a much-needed idealistic, green perspective to the Alberta Legislature.
Janet Keeping, Toronto (lived in Calgary for 45 years), former Leader of the Green Party of Alberta
I had the pleasure of working with Chris on Janet Keeping's campaign and also attended his seminar on public outreach. He is extremely knowledgeable about policy and "retail politics" and would be a wonderful addition to the Legislature, as well as being an outstanding constituency MLA. Please support Chris in whatever way you can.
Phil Elder, 45 year Albertan, just moved to Toronto, Ontario
A truly Green Party man - from Nova Scotia to Ontario and now to lucky Alberta he carries the Green Party banner. An expert on constitutional framework which means he knows how politics are meant to work! With a caring compassionate heart and a wry sense of humour if I were in Edmonton I would be running to vote for Chris on the 16th. So vote Chris Alders for a clearheaded, sensible democratic approach to governing and let's get the province moving again.
Gale O'Brien, Ottawa, Ontario
I first met Chris several years ago. We went for a coffee on Whyte Avenue in Edmonton during the Fringe Festival. We got into some fairly involved discussion on the goals and intentions of the Green Party/ So much so that there was a thank you for parking here sign on the windshield of the car when we had gotten back to it. Chris is very knowledgeable on the ins and outs of the political system. His clarity of understanding and his ability to respond to unexpected questions will stand him in good stead in the Alberta Legislature when the Citizens of Edmonton Centre select him as their representative.
Pat Cuthbert, Edmonton, Alberta
Chris Alders is one of the most passionate supporters of the global Green movement I've ever connected with. The electors of Edmonton-City Centre would be truly blessed to have such a hard-working and dedicated individual to be their MLA. Chris' perspective and voice are sorely needed at the Legislative Assembly. Elect Chris Alders!
Denis Boulet, Deputy Leader, Green Party of New Brunswick, Saint-Francois-de-Madawaska, New Brunswick
I first met Chris in 2015 and was immediately impressed by his deep understanding of political process and conviction that day in and day out citizen engagement is the most effective route to real change. It was refreshing indeed to find someone willing to take a long view, one based on putting in the effort to increase civic literacy and trusting an informed populace would make good choices for us all. Edmonton - City Centre, my home riding, is lucky Chris has chosen to commit to us.
Pamela Bryan, Edmonton, Alberta
Chris is, by far, one of the most knowledgeable and thoughtful voices for the environment. A passionate Green, I have no doubt that Chris will be a fierce advocate for his constituents when elected. I wish I had someone of his calibre running in my riding. If you do have the good fortune to have the opportunity to cast a vote for Chris, do so! And get your neighbours to do the same.
