Please check out why Grant is running, Why I'm Running!
Canada owes its freedom and prosperity to those who in times of crisis have answered the call to defend our country at home and abroad.
Their sacrifice can never be forgotten.
It's been disturbing to read the news coming out of Ottawa recently. The Harper Conservatives spent over $750,000 of our money to fight against veterans benefits all the way to the Supreme Court. Supporting our troops means also supporting them at home when they need our help.
Afghanistan Veterans, and their families, have had to fight tooth and nail to get the benefits they desperately need. At a time when our young men and women were coming back from the field of battle having been wounded physically and mentally this government downgraded our Veteran's Affairs Minister to a part-time job by assigning him other unrelated duties.
That's simply unacceptable.
If I am given the honour of representing Durham in the House of Commons I will make veterans care my number one priority. However, I need your help to do this. Please sign the petition and consider a small donation to keep powering our fight to maintain the dignity of Canada's Heros.
We need a strong voice in Ottawa to stand up for our Veterans, and together, we can make sure that our fighting men and women are given the support they deserve.
Grant ran in the last Federal Election for the Liberal Party - and he's thrown his hat into the ring for a second time! This time, Bev Oda has been allowed to resign without having to face the people who elected her, and to whom she showed so little respect for. The Conservative's don't seem to hold their own to account, so it's time to hold THEM accountable!
Here's more info on the candidate who's earning our support in Durham;
The second oldest of four children, Grant was born on April 8, 1957 in Burnaby B.C. His family moved to the GTA (Willowdale) in the early sixties. Grant and his wife Laurie live in Bowmanville and have five adult children.
After attending The University of Toronto, Grant began his 31 year business career with The Toronto Board of Trade. He held a variety of management positions in the organization, including General Manager of the Board of Trade Golf Club from 1991-2001. Grant also held leadership positions with several industry associations during this time, including serving as Ontario Branch President of the Canadian Society of Club Managers. He completed his career serving as the Board of Trade's Vice President and Chief Operating Officer from 2001 until he retired from the Board in March 2011.
A strong believer in community involvement, Grant has served as the founding Treasurer of the Clarington Branch of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario. This group has advocated for the preservation of the historic training school/Camp 30 site in Bowmanville and has successfully introduced the province wide 'Doors Open' program to Clarington, which has benefited the community by providing both residents and non-residents access to sites of historic and natural interest
Grant has consistently been a strong voice for the ideas, plans and projects that matter to the residents of Durham... and he deserves our support because he is the type of principled representative we need in Ottawa!
