Stephen McKendrick - - DUFFERIN-CALEDON

10 May 2018

Stephen McKendrick is running to become the next MPP for Dufferin-Caledon. "I come from Scottish heritage. Both my parents came to Canada as immigrants in the 1950's. As a child, I lived in Albion Hills, attending Palgrave Elementary School. Later, my family relocated to Bolton, and then, several years later to PEI. There, I fished commercially for 8 years. I moved back to Ontario when the number of federal bureaucrats regulating 2,000 fishermen outnumbered us 3 to 1. I knew then it was time to hang up my rubber boots. Since returning to Ontario, I have lived on a farm in East Garafraxa for the last 24 years. Professionally, I operated a general contracting business in the Town of Bolton for 27 years, with over 20,000 jobs successfully completed. For the majority of my life, I have lived in Dufferin Caledon. I am a business operator in this district. I am married -- 51 years old. I am the proud father of 6 children and 7 grandchildren. I love it here but I see the same economic decline happening as I once did in PEI. This is not right. If a democratic society is hinged on governments, then those same governments need to be accountable and transparent to the people who elect them. I remember what Ronald Reagan once jokingly said, "I am from Government and I am here to help!" Is this what we want for our future? As the scripture states, it's at times like this that God winked."

Paul McKendrick is running to become the next MPP for Perth-Wellington. Married to Donna, together they have three adult daughters.  "I believe in family. I am very involved in my Arthur church community. For most of my life, I have worked in the construction and housing renovation sector. I have witnessed firsthand significant increases in legislation and taxes that have contributed to my costs of doing business. Listening to constituents in Perth Wellington, I have heard the same concerns expressed by other small business owners. Coupled with poor electoral representation and government overreach, I cannot in all good conscience allow this to continue for another four years. Our children and grandchildren deserve much better. It is for this reason that I have chosen to run as a candidate for Perth Wellington under the Consensus Ontario banner."

Peter Rusin - - BURLINGTON

10 May 2018

Peter is running for MPP to represent those people who are seeking an option to the current party governance structure in the province. Peter believes independent thinking and protection of rights for each individual have become suppressed by the current climate of political correctness and extreme party policy agendas. His hope is that everyone can better exercise their freedoms and be able to enjoy the benefits of having less government imposition in their lives by voting for Consensus Ontario; a form of government directed by the people and not as dictated by established party ideologues.  

Peter feels that the current tax burdens, planned deficits and record levels of debt, are unjustly choking the life out of the economic health across the province, and stressing families. He wants to instill a philosophy into government and civil servant representatives that people need to be served in a humble manner, and believes that together with an empowered voter system free of traditional party affiliation, will result in a higher quality of life for all Ontarians. Peter will also bring Transparency and Accountability back to the table to ensure government is responsible and strong.

Peter says the collapse of the provincial Liberal party in 2018 is a good thing, and that it will help to free individuals and bring back confidence to the collective spirit of a more effective democracy. The current political climate is toxic and needs a cleansing. He also wants Burlington voters to be able to set their own course addressing local issues, including making affordable housing a top priority. Peter believes the Burlington riding deserves a stronger and independent voice.

Peter is married with 3 children and is a professional commercial realtor who specializes in expropriation related matters and works on major public transportation infrastructure projects across southern Ontario and the GTHA. In his spare time Peter enjoys cruising with his dog Pepper in a two door 707 horsepower Hellcat, sending a message to all the left wing extremists that life can be more fun when freed of excessive political ideology.
