Honourable Peter Bevan-Baker
Leader of the Official Opposition
MLA District 17 New Haven-Rocky Point
Peter Bevan-Baker arrived at the Prince Edward Island Legislative Assembly in May 2015 after following a long and winding road. That road began in Aberdeen, Scotland, moving through Newfoundland and Ontario before arriving in Hampton, Prince Edward Island in 2002.
On the way he studied music, became a dentist, married “the kindest person I’ve ever met,” had four children, wrote six plays and a musical, and ran as a Green Party candidate in 10 elections before finally succeeding in May 2015 when he became the proud MLA for Kellys Cross–Cumberland. In doing so, Peter became the first Green Party member of the Provincial Legislature. On April 23, 2019, Peter was re-elected in the newly established district of New Haven-Rocky Point, and with a caucus of eight, he formed the first Green Official Opposition in Canada.
Peter has always been active in his community, contributing in a variety of ways. Whether it was directing plays at his local elementary school, chairing the board of the Victoria Playhouse, or coaching soccer, he always felt and acted on a strong sense of community responsibility.
