About Rob



DR. ROB DUNCAN is a former academic social scientist with a PhD in Developmental Psychology (Waterloo, 1999).

Rob is a social and environmental activist, feminist, amateur bass player/singer, birdwatcher and amateur naturalist, and lifelong socialist. Rob is steward of the new community garden at Begbie and Belmont in Fernwood, conceptualized as a native plant permaculture food forest. Rob has been involved with climate action groups including Greenpeace, Extinction Rebellion, and Leap Victoria. During the Stephen Harper and Christy Clark governments, Rob organized an anti-family poverty campaign known as Clowns Against Child Poverty. As well as academia, Rob has worked in a variety of areas including support work in homeless shelters and low-barrier supported housing. Rob was born and brought up on traditional Coast Salish territory in Victoria, and lives with his cat Winston (who would really prefer just to be left out of this whole thing) in a small apartment in a big old house in Fernwood.
