John Williamson

Meet The Candidate

A New Brunswick native from old St. Andrews & Charlotte County families (Williamson, Leighton & Collins), John Williamson has been active in federal politics throughout his life. From joining the Progressive Conservative Party during the 1988 election and volunteering locally for PC Member of Parliament Greg Thompson in the 1990s, to being a part of the team that helped lay the groundwork for the Conservative comeback in 2006, and serving on the national committee that planned and organized the Conservative Party of Canada’s leadership race that elected its leader Andrew Scheer.

During his time in office John secured numerous local infrastructure projects for the riding (roads, wharves, federal buildings & upgrades), successfully led efforts to reform gold-plated pensions for Members of Parliament, introduced a Private Member's Bill to eliminate lifetime parliamentary pensions for federal politicians convicted of criminal malfeasance, and voted with Conservative colleagues to end the Liberal's wasteful and ineffective Long-Gun Registry.

In the 2015 federal election, John’s campaign had the highest Conservative vote — 38.6% — of all 32 ridings in Atlantic Canada. It wasn’t enough to get over the top and the Liberals won by a mere 2,031 votes, but it was a clear signal the local Conservative campaign in New Brunswick Southwest was strong.

Immediately after the 2015 election, John began writing a regular Telegraph Journal column and worked for the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies (AIMS). His columns were also printed in the Financial Post newspaper.

In 2016, John started an organization called Canadians for Affordable Energy with a mandate to... Read Bio
