Candidate Hopeful

I'm seeking your support to be the candidate for The Green Party of Canada for the BSOM Electoral District. I'm a licensed architect (OAA) and business owner with over 27 years of experience in ecological design in Europe, Canada and the USA. I have worked on affordable and energy efficient building and community solutions that create skilled, green jobs and can improve the quality of life of all Canadians ~ we just need the right people in Ottawa to recognize the opportunity! Over 40% of our Members of Parliament are career-politicians and lawyers. I feel that a broader diversity of professional and technical experience can expand and civilize the debate, resulting in sensible policy that can survive beyond election cycles. My goal is to bring Design Thinking to Federal politics with your help. Please join the Green Party of Canada and cast your ballot for Andy Thomson at our Nomination Contest scheduled for June 19th, 2019 at Donaleigh's Irish Pub in downtown Barrie.  I hope to meet you in person soon. Save the date!

Testimonials

  • Like all other architectural visionaries of modern times, Mr. Thomson foresees not merely a radical building type, but also a new kind of human being to fit the built prototype. It may well be that the long-suffering environment will eventually turn on us in some catastrophic fashion — if global warming is not already such a calamity — forcing our conversion from wasteful people into more mindful folk. Should this apocalypse come upon us — or, better still, well before it actually happens — we should be listening to what designers such as Andy Thomson are telling us, and to what they have learned.

  • As an industrial designer and construction professional, I highly recommend Andy Thomson. He is professional, enthusiastic, and a pleasure to work with. We could not be happier with our home.

  • Let me introduce you to Andy Thomson. He is a rock star. Andy works for two firms in Canada as well as his own. Andy’s passion is about design and how to implement Building Information Modelling in large firms/large projects. He is a terrific speaker with lots of big projects completed and I think he will be an excellent keynote speaker for your event.

    Dominic Gallello, Former CEO OF Graphisoft, Autodesk
  • I first met Andy during architecture school. He brought years of experience to the studio, which we all learned from. His experience in Germany, I think was invaluable as they are a culture that cares the most about quality, timeless buildings and they are at the forefront of sustainability. Andy applies this experience and knowledge to his Canadian projects and he truly practices what he preaches ~ he has a ton of experience living a sustainable lifestyle. Andy is an encyclopedia and his energy and excitement for what he does is infectious. Andy is hungry for knowledge and is constantly seeking out best practices and innovation. I strongly recommend Andy for any scale of project and clients are lucky to have access to his creative and rigorous approach.
