Biography

(The following text was provided by the candidate or campaign.)

Michael will work to create good, middle-class jobs through hiring incentives for small businesses, advocate for safe spaces for minority and vulnerable students as well as adequate resourcing for public education, and modernize--not privatize--public health care to improve frontline services.

Born and raised in Calgary, Michael attended the University of Ottawa to pursue studies in history and political science. While in Ottawa, Michael gained valuable experience by interning in the parliamentary office of another young New Democrat, Manitoba MP Niki Ashton. There, he helped organize the NDP Women's Forum that brought young women leaders from all over Canada together to build solutions to inequality and discrimination. Michael will work to create good, middle-class jobs through hiring incentives for small businesses, advocate for safe spaces for minority and vulnerable students as well as adequate resourcing for public education, and modernize--not privatize--public health care to improve frontline services. Michael is a passionate young leader who understands Calgary and is ready to deliver the change we deserve in the Legislature.
