Roland (Rolly) Montpellier 

Roland (Rolly) Montpellier is a climate advocate, a climate communicator and a blogger. He’s a member of  Climate Reality Canada, 350.Org (Ottawa) and Citizens’ Climate Lobby (Canada). He is also Canada’s climate ambassador for We Don’t Have Time. Rolly has been published widely in both print and online. You can follow him on FacebookTwitterLinkedin and Instagram.

He has been a participant in dozens of activist events mostly in Ottawa — climate marches, protest rallies, lobbying of elected officials on Parliament Hill, radio podcasts, film screenings, climate discussion groups, official presentations to government agencies and the like.

Inspired by the birth of his four grandchildren, Rolly now devotes his time and energy to what he believes is “the most critical issue of our times”. Along with Ken Johnson, his colleague and co-founder of Below2°C, his primary goal is to raise awareness about climate change and influence our politicians to take pressing action on pricing carbon and kick-starting our transition to a clean energy platform by 2050.

Rolly has a BA in geography, political science and urban planning from Laurentian University and the University of Waterloo. He has an SOQP Certificate in Educational Administration from the University of Toronto (OISE).
