As an independent candidate in Markham-Stouffville, I’m listening to people in our community to identify issues that are important for them. I hope to be re-elected in 2019 as the Member of Parliament who will champion these issues on behalf of my constituents. Please see my blog for an ever-growing list of policy positions.
I’ve been listening to the people of Markham-Stouffville since I made this community my home in 1998. I listened as a family doctor here for 17 years. For the last four years, I’ve been listening as a MP. This website is another step in our community conversations.
As we get closer to the 2019 election, I’m focused on a short list of priorities for the people of Markham-Stouffville - issues where the federal government has a critical role.
Here are some of the topics I’m hearing about from people in the community with links to statements on each issue.
- Climate action
- Democratic reform
- Reconciliation with Indigenous peoples
- Respecting diversity
- Local issues
Check this website regularly for blogposts and other information about the issues listed above. I’ll provide some background on why that issue matters; what the key challenges are; some proposed solutions; and how I could advocate if re-elected as an independent MP for Markham-Stouffville. I look forward to your feedback.
Working together, we can improve lives for people in our community and in our country.
