Paul believes in the power and importance of education. As a proud father of two young children, Paul has a personal interest in ensuring that the education system in Dundas and West Flamborough provides a fulsome and robust curriculum that prepares its students for real life.
In his professional life, Paul is a dedicated advocate for children. In his role as a private practice lawyer, and for the Office of the Children’s Lawyer, Paul works tirelessly to protect the rights and interests of families and children by ensuring that every child is afforded the basic rights of a safe home and access to education. Paul also has a strong background in public policy development. In his role as special assistant to the Minister of Health and Long-Term care, he has spent countless hours, drafting public policy.
Paul has seen first hand the power of education. Paul obtained a bachelors degree and masters degree in Social Work, and worked for several years as a social worker, with a focus on the protection of children and youth. In his role as a social worker, he witnessed disenfranchised children excel when given access to a supportive school environment, which is a testament to the adage that education is the ultimate equalizer.
Paul and his family are active members of the Dundas community. Paul’s wife is a family physician with a practice located in Dundas, and both children attend school in the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board.
