Elect Michael Skinner 2019 Conservative Candidate for Peterborough - Kawarthas


Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC) is a cornerstone of our local healthcare services. As a previous volunteer fundraiser for PRHC, I am keenly aware of how every precious dollar of funding can mean a world difference to the people who need emergency or critical care services.

I’m interested in what you think is our most pressing environmental issue?

While I was the President and CEO of the Innovation Cluster, we added in the specific focus of CleanTech for Entrepreneurs. Fact is that, when we create successful companies that provide solutions to environmental issues, we are also creating jobs! Over my term with the Innovation Cluster we were able to help entrepreneurs create just under 400 jobs within 119 companies in just three and a half years.
