Ending the Indian Act, Blockades, and Hypocrisy
While politicians refuse to act for fear of losing a few votes, small groups of radical, privileged and dishonest idealogues are attempting to derail Canadian society.
These groups have hijacked our charitable dispositions, successfully stifled our freedom of speech through coercive political correctness, distorted our education, rewritten our history, abused freedom of assembly, caused financial harm and grave disruptions to our economy, while seeking to impoverish and lower the standards of all Canadians regardless of their ancestry. They seek to prevent the Indigenous peoples from sharing in the fruits of a modern society while enshrining their dependence onto a welfare state.Read more

Broadband Expansion Petition
Make your voices heard, on rural broadband expansion.
Based on my survey of residents earlier this year I am astonished that 93% of households in my riding do not meet the minimum standard for internet service and over half pay between $150-$300 per month for their services.
Along side a recently released petition to the House of Commons I am launching a petition to The Ontario Government to demand action on broadband expansion in rural Ontario.
