Zachary believes the key to prosperity in Ontario is through reducing the size and cost of our provincial government, finding market-based solutions to economic issues, empowering business owners and encouraging foreign investment through lower taxes and deregulation, respecting personal expression to one's lifestyle, identity, and religion, defending property rights, individual rights, bodily autonomy, and the rights of parents to raise their children how they see fit, and by holding establishment political parties accountable for expensive and inefficient programs and lobbyist corruption.
He was inspired to enter politics after witnessing the vast government overreach during the COVID-19 pandemic as small businesses were destroyed by lockdowns, the rise in mental health and substance abuse issues from forced isolation, the failures of our healthcare system to provide us with adequate care, how people's medical rights were violated and their jobs taken away, property rights and travel rights were violated, how children's education and development was interrupted, how dissenting voices were vilified and silenced, how peaceful protests were violently suppressed, and the increase in censorship by the government, media organizations, and big technology companies.
Zachary is the Business Analytics and Segmentation Lead for a Mutual Insurance Company, specializing in farm insurance. He is a Fellow Chartered Insurance Professional and Associate of Insurance Data Analytics, and is the upcoming Chair on the Kawartha-Durham Council of the Insurance Institute of Canada.
Zachary lives in Lindsay, Ontario with his wife Amanda and their children Mackenzie and Connor. He grew up in Bradford and Aurora, and graduated from the University of Waterloo with a degree in Mathematics and Business Administration, with a minor in economics.
