Member of Parliament for Avalon.
Thank you for your past support and your confidence in me as your Member of Parliament for Avalon Riding. It has been a sincere pleasure to serve you.
Every summer my wife Susan, our boys Malcolm & Isaac and I enjoy attending many of the festivals and events which occur throughout the riding. The break from the House of Commons provides me with an opportunity to listen, re-connect and meet with the great people of Avalon Riding.
While our summer has been prematurely interrupted by an early surprise election call designed to allow the Harper Conservatives to outspend the other participants, I intend to, with my family, spend my summer touring the riding as we have done for the past seven years.
In this election, I will be running as an Independent. Polls suggest a major shakeup of Parliament is the likely outcome of the election.
In Avalon Riding, you will have an opportunity to reject the gamesmanship and the dirty side of politics by rejecting the national parties.
As an independent Member of Parliament, I would be in a unique position to directly determine the policies and type of government we wake up to on October 20th. The people of Avalon Riding can play king maker - holding the balance of power.
I have worked hard as your Member of Parliament here in the riding and in Ottawa. My team is ready; help me show Ottawa that the time for change is now!
