In 2015, Rick’s St. Catharines EDA raised the 3rd highest amount of funds heading into the federal campaign, second only to Jason Kenney and Stephen Harper.
Deeply involved in his community, Rick established Hockey Night in St. Catharines, a charity hockey game that since 2010 has raised over $1 Million for the United Way of St. Catharines and District and Parkinson’s disease research. Rick joined Patrick Brown and his Parliamentary colleagues on the ice for the inaugural game in 2010.
Rick and Patrick Brown were elected together in 2006 and had offices side by side in Ottawa. They became good friends and often collaborated to effectively deliver for their communities. While Rick was in Ottawa, Patrick was always the last one to leave the building, he doesn’t quit. Rick knows that Patrick is in it for Ontario and for you and your family. He wants to win.
Rick knows that as President of the PC Party, he can continue to work with a credible and dedicated leader to renew our Party, reclaim Queen’s Park and re-establish pride in our Province.
