For Kingston and the Islands
On your side in Kingston and the Islands
- Barrington grew up with immigrant parents who worked hard to build their lives in Canada. After 20 years teaching Canadian history at Queen’s university, he now wants to ensure all people feel welcomed and have the same opportunity his parents did - to succeed in a society increasingly defined by rising inequalities and diminishing services.
- To him, making life more affordable for people means implementing pharmacare, maintaining public health care, tackling climate change while creating a green new economy, providing a basic income and building new affordable housing.
- Barrington lives in Kingston with his wife, Indigenous activist Georgina Riel, and their two sons. He believes in the need for true reconciliation and is passionate about being on the side of people, not helping rich corporations get richer.
