Why I’m running for Parliament’ by Doctor Marcus Powlowski

Why I’m running for Parliament’ by Doctor Marcus Powlowski

Thunder Bay-Rainy River

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO - September 11, 2018  (LSN)  As a doctor in Thunder Bay Regional’s emergency department, I see first hand how governments can fail some of us. In my current job I certainly help people, but I feel that I can do even more to make lives better all-round.

That’s why I think my background makes me a good candidate for Member of Parliament for Thunder Bay-Rainy River.

I have practiced medicine in remote First Nations in Canada, Africa, and the South Pacific. I also have law degrees from the University of Toronto (LL.B) and Georgetown University in Washington (LL.M). I completed a Masters degree in health policy and law from Harvard. I have developed health law and policy for the World Health Organization and advised a number of governments on their health laws. I’ve lectured at the University of San Francisco and at Lakehead University.

For all the advanced degrees, though, I still consider myself just a regular guy from Westfort and Kaministiquia. Like a lot of you, I have a hockey net in my driveway. My grandmother ran Annie’s Confectionary on East Brock Street in Westfort. My parents were the founders and owners of Strawberry Hill Pottery.

I am proud to have grown up here and to call Thunder Bay my home town.  As a father of five children, I want to make sure my kids have a clean planet, can live in a sustainable economy and find meaningful employment here.

I will make the case that Northwestern Ontario needs special attention from Ottawa  decision-makers who sometimes have a hard time finding us on a map.

I have seen some great things done for our region over the past four years of this Liberal government from investments in wood fibre research, $6 million for Thunder Bay Transit, money for Keefer terminal and more.

Still, in the words of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, better is always possible.

Canada is a rich and great country. However, people do not always have the same opportunity to make successful lives. I believe I have the skills to advocate for a fairer, healthier, stronger, and more prosperous Northwestern Ontario.

Elections have consequences.  Consider all of the choices.  I feel confident that with my background I am the best qualified candidate to represent Thunder Bay-Rainy River.

To find out more about me, I invite you to check out my Facebook page, Marcus Powlowski, Thunder Bay-Rainy River.

Since May 2007, the Canada Elections Act provides for a general election to be held on a fixed date: the third Monday of October in the fourth calendar year following the previous general election. As the last election took place on October 19, 2015, the next fixed election date is October 21, 2019.
If you are running for the upcoming Federal Election we would be interested in hearing from you
