Permettez-moi de me presenter, d’abord et avant tout Je suis très reconnaissant et profondément honoré de représenter les Canadiens et je tiens à remercier le Parti conservateur du Canada pour l'honneur de les servir en tant que candidat dans Laval-Les Îles.
Allow me to introduce myself properly… first and foremost I am very grateful for the opportunity and thank the Conservative Party of Canada for the honour of serving as its candidate in Laval-Les Isles.
My name is Spyridonas Pettas, short for Spyros, I was born in 1968 in Athens, Greece and had the great fortune of Immigrating to Canada in 1969.
I am a proud University Graduate with a Bachelor in Commerce and a minor in International Business from Concordia University and have spent 30 years of my professional career in management and leadership of private and publicly held enterprises.
Currently, I am the President of a small enterprise ARCA Logistics Solutions Inc., a privately held armoured car and security guard company as well as , more recently, I have had the pleasure of working for CIUSSS Centre Intégré Universitaire en Santé et Services Sociaux de L’Ouest de Montreal for Batshaw Youth and Family Centres, a government funded organization in Montreal that is devoted to the welfare of children and their families. Batshaw , as many of you may be aware, is entirely funded by the Government of Québec.
I am the proud father of two young adults in pursuit of their academic studies, and I proudly state, that my son Peter is an active Reservist in the Canadian Armed Forces.
I came to the decision to run for office with the Conservative Party of Canada after a great deal of contemplation. Running for office has been an ambition of mine for many years and decisive factors for my involvement are , in addition to the non-existent respect of Trudeau and the Liberal Party for; Canadians’ livelihoods, health, women’s rights, freedom of expression, First Nations rights, our veterans who risked their lives for our freedoms, real environmental solutions, taxpayers’ rights, the energy sector as a whole, the right to privacy (the list is long and they continue to have crippling and devastating effects on our beautiful country and economy) , then the determining factors in my choice to join the public service are; my love and passion for Canada; its people, its diversity, its generosity, its defence of freedom and human rights, as well as its resilience and determination in times of constraint.
It is in this office that we can serve the common good by leading by example, by giving a voice to those silenced, by restoring respect to the word family, by restoring respect to honest Workers in Canada and by proposing real, realistic solutions, which Justin Trudeau’s party has repeatedly failed.
It is time for all Canadians to react and demand changes for a better future.
The controlling and abusive era of Justin Trudeau must come to end.
As we all know, we are living in unprecedented times plagued by a global pandemic and challenging, indeed often devastating conditions.
If I have the honor of being elected by the constituents of Laval les Isles, I will do the outmost of my ability to serve them in an honest and honorable way.
I will be there to listen and address all of their concerns at the Federal level.
With the support of our community and its members, I will fight to have all the right resources to best represent my constituents and, hopefully, to bring about the changes and to ensure a better future for them and their families.
Obviously, We are living in unprecedented times therefore hard work, dedication, cooperation, transparency, attentiveness and collective efforts will help us get through the current crisis.
I fully realize that the tasks and responsibilities before me are great and will require endless hours of dedication. I want you to know, that I am prepared and willing to take on these and many other challenges to support the constituents of Laval les Isles.
Our leader and the next Prime Minister of Canada, Erin O’Toole has demonstrated through his personal career and work ethic that hard work, dedication, and loyalty can achieve anything you set your mind to.
His successful career in the Royal Canadian Air Force, his years as legal counsel and his Political experience have helped him become the right person to lead Canada and face the challenges of our current social, economic, cultural and political times.
Erin O’Toole has demonstrated that he is prepared and willing to address the needs and concerns of the people of Quebec in all matters of social, cultural, economic and political concern.
I believe that under the leadership of Erin O’Toole, Canada will come out of the current harsh situation, caused in large part, by Liberal misconduct and negligence. With Erin O’Toole at the head of Conservative Party a bright and positive future awaits all Canadians.
