Dylan Perceval-Maxwell is a Canadian environmentalist,[1] businessman and politician from Montreal, Quebec who has stood for the Green Party of Canada as the candidate for Laurier—Sainte-Marie in 1997,[2] 2000, 2004,[3] 2006, and 2008. He was also the candidate in Alfred-Pellan in 2011.[4] He was a candidate for the leadership of the Green Party in 2020,[5] but was removed from the contest following inappropriate statements in a candidates' debate.[6][7]

Career[edit]

Perceval-Maxwell was one of the proponents of the BIOBUS project which was tested in 2002 by the Société de transport de Montréal.[3][5] The project, which lasted one year and had a budget of $1.3 million, showed that while in active working conditions that the use of biodiesel is viable in the city which has temperatures that could go as low as -30°C and that it was feasible to continuously supply the MTC.[8] At one point, his car ran on discarded deep-fryer oil from fast-food restaurants.[9][10] He owned "Je L'ai" a hemp and drug paraphernalia store on Duluth Avenue East, in Montreal.[11]

Political aspirations[edit]

Perceval-Maxwell joined the Green Party in 1985 as a volunteer, and would later become its candidate in Laurier—Sainte-Marie for a span of 5 elections, from 1997 to 2008, and in Alfred-Pellan for the 2011 election.[4] His 2006 campaign is the subject of the National Film Board documentary Democracy 4 Dummies.[12][13]

Green Party leadership[edit]

Perceval-Maxwell announced over Facebook that he would run for the leadership of the Green Party on March 17, 2020.[14][15] Although his candidacy went unnoticed by the media for much of its early launch, he was later approved by the party on May 29, 2020.[5] On July 8 the Party announced that he was no longer a candidate, citing inappropriate statements "not aligned with the party's core values."[16][7]

Personal life[edit]

Perceval-Maxwell lives in Montreal with his partner, Julie. He has a degree in Climate Variability from McGill University.[5]
