I have been proud to call Northwestern Ontario 'home' my entire life. I've entered this race because I believe that our region’s young people have a role to play in the social and economic future of our communities. Life has gotten harder – and more expensive – for northerners under the Wynne Liberals, while the NDP have been completely ineffective advocates for our region.
It's time for that to change, and for our communities to have a voice at Queen's Park that puts the Northwest first.
I am a lawyer based in Kenora—Rainy River. Most of my family lives and works in the communities of our riding – in farming, trucking, logging, construction, and healthcare. They are business owners, tradespeople, professionals, and volunteers. Through them, from an early age, I learned about the importance of hard work and service. I began my own career as an aide on Parliament Hill, and later worked for the federal government. Since then, I have had the opportunity to teach undergraduate students and practice law with one of Canada’s top firms. In everything I do, I am proud to be an ambassador for the Northwest, its peoples, and their values.
