GLENN WRIGHT BIOGRAPHY

Glenn Wright worked as a mechanical engineer for 20 years before becoming a lawyer in 2021. Glenn grew up in Saskatoon as a “city kid” but decided to start farming in 2004. Glenn and his wife reside on a farm near Delisle, SK, and grow grains, oilseeds, and pulse crops while focusing on reducing their emissions and environmental impact.

Glenn and his wife have installed a solar energy system on their farm and are electric vehicle advocates. Glenn heats their house with geothermal energy, and they turned off their natural gas service in 2008. They completed a deep insulation retrofit on their home in 2019 and have reduced their domestic emissions by more than 50% compared to 2006. Glenn Wright and his son even raced the family EVs at the local drag strip in 2021 and 2023 as part of demonstrations to raise public awareness about EVs in Saskatchewan. Glenn and his son also converted a 1980 Dodge truck to electric propulsion.

Glenn continues to change his farming practices to focus on low-input approaches to reduce reliance on corporate inputs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and manage climate-related and other risks by minimizing input costs. Glenn Wright, being the quirky engineer, estimates that the emissions reductions associated with low-input farming has had an impact that is many times greater than the combined changes made in the household context (insulation, solar, and EVs for transport). He knows from personal experience that policy, collective action, and regulation of industry are what is necessary to mitigate the climate crisis.

Glenn Wright advocates passionately for sustainability, equality, and strengthening our democracy. He has run as a candidate in several elections. Glenn currently serves as a board member on SaskEV and the Saskatchewan Environmental Society and is a former director of the SaskBarley crop commission and former Vice President of the National Farmers Union. Glenn focuses his activism on energy policy, climate change, social justice, and sustainable transition pathways.

While in law school, Glenn Wright drafted the National Farmers Union Affidavit as part of a joint Intervention in support of the Federal Government of Canada with respect to the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act court challenges pursued by the provincial governments of Saskatchewan, Alberta, Ontario, and New Brunswick. Glenn is presently lead counsel on a strategic climate litigation project in Saskatchewan where 7 applicants and the NGO Climate Justice Saskatoon are challenging SaskPower’s ongoing expansion of natural gas fired electricity generation because these projects will exacerbate the climate crisis and violate Charter rights of the applicants and citizens at large.

Testimonials

I have both seen and coordinated talks by Glenn Wright. As a talk coordinator, I like working with Glenn because he is professional, responsive, and very well organized. As a speaker, Glenn is always well researched. His talks are packed with new information and takeaways for the audience. He brings together the logic of his legal training, the facts of his engineering training, his deep and broad reading, and his on-the-ground implementation to make his talks relevant to all listeners. Glenn also brings a humanity to his public speaking that create a personal connection with the audience. I would highly recommend Glenn as a speaker.
