Meet the candidate: PPC Stephen MacLeod

“We want to reduce the looting of the federal government through tax cuts and that will help us to identify and finance our own interests in the region.”

After doing a lot of couch politics and debating with friends, Stephen MacLeod decided to throw his hat in the ring when he found out there was a vacant place in horseback riding.

MacLeod is the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) candidate for Timmins-James Bay in the September 20th federal election.

He grew up in southern Ontario in Haldimand-Norfolk and moved with his family to the Englehart area about five years ago.

Until recently he worked as a commercial driver for a local construction company. He said he took an early layoff to get all of his focus and attention to the campaign.

This election is MacLeod’s first political campaign. The PPC is a fairly new party in Canada and this is their second general election.

“One of the greatest things is talking to a lot of other people, not just in this Riding but all over Ontario, tired of hearing the same old rhetoric from the campaign leaders that we’ve heard over and over, election after election about choice, “said MacLeod.

Veterans, indigenous communities and taxpayer money preservation in Northern Ontario are among the issues he focuses on.

“(Veterans) are men and women who have risked their lives for us, they are heroes, yet many of them live in poor conditions – like in long-term care homes – many of them have health problems,” he said.

While he said there are really good health programs out there to help veterans, a lot of people are giving up and paying out of pocket because of the red tape and paperwork.

He said there was also no reason for indigenous communities to suffer from unclean drinking water.

“We are one of the wealthiest nations in the world and our own people and our own people do not have safe drinking water, this is a Third World issue, why is this a Canadian problem?” And I want to try and address that, ”he said.

As a party, MacLeod said they want to keep Northern Ontario tax dollars in Northern Ontario.

“We want to reduce the looting of the federal government by lowering taxes and that will help us to determine and finance our own interests in the region. It also allows us to encourage and equip all Canadians to be successful and the best way to do that is to help entrepreneurs create businesses and high paying jobs to strengthen our economy, to be proactive about the Bringing production back to our region. said MacLeod.

As a candidate for the PPC, he likes the fact that the party promotes individualism and encourages its MPs to draft laws for private members.

“They really do give us a good voice, which in turn means that we can become a good voice for the people in our area, and I think that’s really needed especially in our area,” he said.

The other candidates are NDP Charlie Angus, Liberal Steve Black and Conservative Morgan Ellerton.
