David Bruno of Kenora has received his Liberal nomination as the next candidate for the Kenora federal riding in the upcoming federal election.

“I’m very excited, I’m not going to lie it’s daunting, politics isn’t a game, you’re here to serve and I’m here to do a job and I’m very excited and I’m very positive that I can do this job,” said Bruno

Bruno is not shy about the hard work and effort politics entails and is looking forward to the challenge.

“It’s going to be a lot of work and it's something that I’ve always wanted to do this sort of work and I haven't shied away from it at the least. I just don’t read policy I write policy,” added Bruno

The Kenora resident is no stranger to the government as he contributed to Canada’s new Digital Charter, Bill C-11, which is a new Cyber Security policy.

Bruno has a degree in Political Science from Lakehead University and a degree in International Relations from the University of Madrid. His military background has led him around the world that has resulted in a long history of advocacy for individuals and business protection.

Bruno’s priorities if elected are the acceleration of the twinning of the TransCanada Highway and to bring high-speed internet to rural and remote communities across Northwestern Ontario. Bruno will also be fighting for more funding in the region in terms of equity.

The next federal election is expected to be held on or before October 16, 2023.

The last Liberal candidate from the Kenora riding was Bob Nault.
