For Niagara Centre
On your side in Niagara Centre
- As Member of Parliament from 2008 to 2015, Malcolm worked hard to make sure the voices of the people of Niagara Centre were heard in Ottawa. As the Official Opposition Critic for Agriculture and Agri-Food, he led the fight for stronger food safety measures and better support for family-owned farms.
- He defended working Canadians with legislation to help them access severance pay faster and worked to create a national organ donor registry. Malcolm headed up a successful challenge to remove taxes from the sale of poppies in the Legion’s annual poppy campaign – saving the Legion almost $800,000 a year.
- Before heading to Parliament, Malcolm served on the Pelham Town Council and as deputy mayor. Born in Scotland, he immigrated to Canada as a child in 1963. An electrician by trade, he was the financial officer for CAW Local 199. Malcolm and his wife, Peggy, are the proud parents of three children.
- Malcolm is partnering with Jeff Burch, our NDP MPP, to level the playing field for seniors, working Canadians, families, and small businesses with services they can rely on – universal pharmacare, affordable housing, and a climate change plan that creates good green jobs.
