I am the son of Italian Immigrants who have lived in the Eglinton Lawrence riding for over 50 years. Growing up in this riding, I had a paper route from the time I was 10 for 4 years on Glengrove and Glen Park avenues which included the Apartment building at 2900 Bathurst Street. In the winters after snowy days, I had my snow shovel in hand going door to door selling snow removal for $5.00. I was always responsible for my monetary needs as a youth. I rode my bike as a youth all over the riding and know it like the back of my hand.
I have returned to the area every Sunday for the past 20 years to visit my parents as family is very important to me. I have seen the vibrant changes to the area over the years.
My personal values can be summed as follows; Don’t hurt people, don’t take their stuff, take responsibility, work for it and mind your business. Values I believe all Canadians have. It’s our shared values that make us strong as a nation.
I have a bachelors degree in business and also have a professional designation as a Nutritionist. I’ve owned and operated a vitamin distribution company for over 13 years and prior to that worked in middle management, as a trainer, recruiter and sales executive in the Fortune 500 I.T. industry for over 10 years. I’ve hired many people over the years and believe there is a lot of diversity in competency.
I’ve watched the Canadian political landscape for many years and am now dismayed
Government has become an overweight, over reaching behemoth in this country; public masters instead of public servants.
This is why I am running for the People’s Party of Canada; to help keep more money in your pockets, reduce government spending like corporate bailouts and irresponsible foreign aid, to protect Canadian Sovereignty from foreign bureaucratic intervention (UN Migration and Climate Pact) and to increase prosperity for all Canadians.
