Bruce and Jenny have lived in Lambton-Kent-Middlesex for 13 years. They moved back to Lucan in 2006, and then purchased their current residence and cash crop farm in Middlesex Centre in 2015.
Bruce was an Alderman in the Township of West Lincoln (Niagara) for 2 terms (6 years). Bruce was Deputy Mayor for six months of that time and served in positions of Chair of Planning and Development, Chair of the Economic Development Committee, and Chair of the Four Municipalities Waste Management Committee, which oversaw the construction of the Niagara Road 12 Landfill that serves West Lincoln, Pelham, Lincoln and Grimsby. He served on the negotiating committee for a new contract with the township's union, and was always involved in the budget process to ensure ratepayers were receiving the best value for their tax dollars. He (voluntarily) retired in 1997.
Bruce believes that there are going to be two major issues in the next federal election campaign, expected in October 2019.
(1) Carbon Tax: Justin Trudeau's carbon tax is going to be a big issue in Ontario and other provinces.
(2) Competence: Justin Trudeau's government has shown its incompetence, whether it be their inability to run or even forecast a balanced budget, their decision to pay Omar Khadr over $10 million, their reluctance to transfer convicted child-murderer Terri-Lynne McClintic from the minimum security "healing lodge", their total bungling of pipeline issue -- and the list goes on (and on and on).
