• Rick Dykstra Niagara West-Glanbrook

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to announce my candidacy for the PC Party nomination in the riding of Niagara West-Glanbrook.

Born at West Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Grimsby, I grew up in the riding of Niagara West-Glanbrook, first on Mountain Road in Beamsville and later Craig Boulevard in Grimsby. My mother was a hairdresser and my father delivered milk for Christie’s Dairy (I preferred the ice cream), while I attended John Knox Memorial School in Fruitland.

As a proud son of Dutch immigrants, I know the value of hard work and have dedicated my adult life to serving the people of Niagara. I have served two terms as a city councillor and more recently, three terms as a Conservative Member of Parliament for St. Catharines. During this time I delivered more than $372 million in investments across the Niagara Region.

I’ve helped our community assist those in need by creating the annual Hockey Night event fundraiser which has raised over $1 Million for United Way which supports numerous programs in St. Catharines, Thorold, Grimsby, Lincoln, West Lincoln and Niagara-on-the-Lake.

I have held leadership roles at Queen’s Park including as Chief of Staff for Minister John Baird, and as Director of Caucus and Public Relations for Premier Mike Harris.
