Most recently, he ran the successful national "Yes" campaign to have Progressive Conservatives approve the establishment of the Conservative Party.
Peter has been a dedicated member of the Progressive Conservative Party both federally and in Ontario for more than 29 years. Whether as a riding president, campaign manager, event organizer, or candidate/manager trainer, Peter has demonstrated his significant skills and ability to organize and lead others to success. He is the candidate for the Conservative Party of Canada in York-Simcoe.
As president of the Ontario P.C. Party between 1994 and 1998, Peter helped move the party from third place to government. Through his hands on work with ridings to his leadership with members of his executive, he provided knowledge, information, advice and experience to the party.
