Lydia West became actively involved in the Green movement after discovering the federal and provincial Greens’ platforms. The socially progressive, fiscally sound policies that are environmentally conscious reflect her values, as well as those of many Ontarians.
Lydia was born and raised in a Hungarian-Canadian family in Hamilton, Ontario and is happily married to fellow Green Party candidate Andrew West. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Arts and Contemporary Studies from Ryerson University, speaks four languages and has an extensive background working abroad.
Lydia is currently secretary for the Provincial Executive of the Green Party of Ontario and she is transitioning into the field of law as a court transcriptionist.
