Fourth candidate seeks Conservative nomination

A fourth candidate has entered the race for the Conservative nomination in the federal riding of Pontiac.
Mark Buzan lives in the Plateau area of Gatineau with his wife and son where he owns and runs a company that manages non-profit organizations.
After graduating from the University of Ottawa with a bachelor’s degree in political science, Buzan worked for Jason Kenney when the MP was first with the Reform Party, then Canadian Alliance and eventually the Conservatives. Until recently, Buzan was an executive . . .

vice-president of Quebec provincial Conservative Party.
Buzan talked with THE EQUITY about what drew him to join the competition to become the Conservative nominee.
“What I am motivated by is a genuine, deep conviction that the country is going in the wrong direction and that we need to bring back smaller government, lower taxes, and allow people to have their life back again,” he said.
Buzan’s campaign website features the slogan, “Let’s make hard work pay off again,” along with several messages from the candidate. Among them, he says he will “uphold conservative values and advocate for policies that allow small businesses to thrive naturally, creating strong jobs without excessive interference from the federal government.”
Over recent months three other candidates have announced their candidacies for the Conservative nomination in our riding: Michel Gauthier, Brian Goodman and Jean-Nicolas de Bellefeuille.
