I recently met the Tory candidate for Ajax Pickering. Chris Alexander was Canada's Ambassador to Afghanistan. He has an amazing resume. He was educated at McGill, U of T, Laval and Oxford.He was on the varsity rowing team at McGill.
He is multi lingual speaking English, French, Russian, German and Farsi. He was one of Canada's Top forty under 40 in 2006.
He has extensive diplomatic experience at the United Nations, in Russia and of course Afghanistan.
He has extensive training in conflict resolution and leadership.
He has a huge list of awards and accomplishments. He is married to Hedvig Christine Alexander with a one year old daughter named Selma. Given all that I found him humble, easy to talk to and a great person. Our party is very lucky to have such an intelligent, articulate young leader as our candidate in Ajax Pickering. He is a rising Tory star.
I urge all of you to help Chris Alexander to become the Tory MP for Ajax Pickering. Donate, volunteer and vote for him!! Join his Facebook group.
