Meet Your MP

Michael has been Chair of the House Standing Committees on; Industry, Science and Technology, Canadian Heritage and Official Languages. He is a co-founder and has been a member of the All Party Climate Caucus since it was founded in 2011. He was recently named as the Official Opposition’s Shadow Minister for Democratic Institutions. 

In 2015, Michael’s Reform Act received royal assent. He was able to work with members of all parties and individuals across Canada to pass the bill.

Michael co-founded the Dominion Institute, now known as Historica Canada, an organization committed to raising Canadians' awareness of history and civics and currently sits on its Board of Governors. Michael attended Trinity College at the U of T where he obtained a degree in philosophy. 

Born in 1971, Michael grew up just outside of Fergus in Wellington County, Ontario. In 2002, Michael married Carrie Davidson. They have three sons, William, Alistair and Cameron. They live just outside of Fergus.
