Libby Yuill – GPO Nominee
Born and raised in Medicine Hat, AB. but I have lived in Ontario since 1992. First London, ON for 10 years and Mississauga for 16 years. My full name is Margery Elizabeth Yuill but I have been called Libby since I was an infant.
I am married to John-Paul Moczulski (25 years), a freelance photojournalist, and we have 3 children – Warner (24), Anais (20), and Ryker (13). I owned and operated a financial services firm for seven years during the 1990s, raised my children throughout the 2000s while working part-time in a variety of areas, and currently I teach self-defense and Karate as well as doing contract work occasionally.
I have spent time reading, studying, and understanding the value of sustainable development, deep ecology, and the triple bottom line economy of people, planet, and profit. My desire to run as a candidate for the Green Party of Ontario is founded on the belief that innovative ideas, a committed understanding to the greater good, and a determined will to ensure the best path is chosen to meet the challenges we face today for a sustainable, resilient future tomorrow.
