As per the Constitution of the Conservative Party of Canada, in order to vote you must provide identification using either:

  • One original piece of identification issued by a Canadian federal, provincial or territorial government agency containing the member's photograph, name and address (e.g. drivers license, passport), OR
  • Two original pieces of identification, which contain the member's name, one of which contains the member's photograph and one of which contains the member's address, such as a property tax bill or utility bill.

Please note that the identification requirements shall be subject to the exercise of discretion by the returning officer or equivalent to waive specific requirements where exceptional circumstances warrant.

You will be asked to select your preferred candidates in order. You can put a ranking number beside up to six names, with the number 1 being your preferred choice:

Candidate A
Candidate B
Candidate C3
Candidate D2
LAMB, Bruce1
Candidate F

For the ranked ballot voting, you can choose to rank all of the candidates, a few of the candidates, or you may even choose to only select one candidate -- and that choice is totally acceptable.

NOTE: Here are a couple of things that could cause your ballot to be spoiled:

a) Ranking two candidates with the same rank number. For example, if you like two candidates equally and rank them both as #1, your ballot will be marked as spoiled and your vote will be wasted.

b) If any symbol other than a number is used, such as an "x" or "check mark", the ballot's validity is at the determination of the Returning Officer and your ballot may be marked as spoiled.

The Returning Officer has the final say during the vote count on whether or not a ballot is valid.

Naturally, we hope you'll put a "1" beside Bruce's name. But if you've already committed to support another candidate, he will still be happy with a "2" beside his name. We feel blessed to receive whatever support you can provide.

More than anything, we are very happy that so many people are engaged in this nomination process. It is exciting, and important.

Typically the vote for a party nominee is one night/one location. This is a big riding and the CPC along with the riding association have opted to try a two location vote.

You need only attend one of the opportunities for voting.

Bruce and Jenny have lived in Lambton-Kent-Middlesex for 13 years. They moved back to Lucan in 2006, and then purchased their current residence and cash crop farm in Middlesex Centre in 2015.


Bruce was an Alderman in the Township of West Lincoln (Niagara) for 2 terms (6 years). Bruce was Deputy Mayor for six months of that time and served in positions of Chair of Planning and Development, Chair of the Economic Development Committee, and Chair of the Four Municipalities Waste Management Committee, which oversaw the construction of the Niagara Road 12 Landfill that serves West Lincoln, Pelham, Lincoln and Grimsby. He served on the negotiating committee for a new contract with the township's union, and was always involved in the budget process to ensure ratepayers were receiving the best value for their tax dollars. He (voluntarily) retired in 1997.

Bruce believes that there are going to be two major issues in the next federal election campaign, expected in October 2019.

(1) Carbon Tax: Justin Trudeau's carbon tax is going to be a big issue in Ontario and other provinces.

(2) Competence: Justin Trudeau's government has shown its incompetence, whether it be their inability to run or even forecast a balanced budget, their decision to pay Omar Khadr over $10 million, their reluctance to transfer convicted child-murderer Terri-Lynne McClintic from the minimum security "healing lodge", their total bungling of pipeline issue -- and the list goes on (and on and on).

We have lots of detailed information on Why Bruce page, but in short:

  • Bruce lives in the riding. (Several candidates don't.)
  • Bruce has been elected and re-elected to public office. (No other candidate can say that.)
  • Bruce has paid his dues. He's worked in over 15 municipal, provincial and federal campaigns (more than any other candidate).
  • You will not find a harder worker. (We will need this in the coming election.)
  • He and his wife, Jenny, have been running small businesses since 1988. (Bruce knows what it takes for governments to allow businesses to grow the economy.)
  • He and Jenny are farmers and current Ontario Federation of Agriculture members. (Others may have worked on farms or their parent's farm, but Bruce and Jenny are the only ones to currently live on their farm and hold an OFA membership.)
  • Bruce is a fiscal conservative. (He abhors deficits.)
  • Bruce gives back to his community, whether through his work as a Lions member, director of several charity running races or giving blood. (Giving back to his community is part of what defines him.)
