After graduating from New Westminster Secondary School, Peter held a number of jobs as a manual labourer and factory worker for local small businesses. Peter has a degree in Political Science specializing in International Relations, from the University of Québec in Montréal.
Peter was first elected to the House of Commons in 2004 as a Member of Parliament representing the constituency of Burnaby-New Westminster. Prior to being elected to Canada’s Parliament, Peter worked as a Financial Administrator. He is a former Executive Director of the Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (WIDHH) and, under his leadership; the Institute won consecutive Canadian Consumers’ Choice Awards for Excellence in Business (2003-2004).Peter was also a founding member and former Executive Director of the Council of Canadians.
Peter was instrumental in building the British Columbia Disability Employment Network, a consortium of community groups, organizations and non-profit societies dedicated to serving people with disabilities.
Since being elected in 2004, Peter has assisted over 20, 000 people in the riding. He continues to work hard to help constituents with various issues related to the Canada Revenue Agency, Service Canada, Immigration, and many more.
Recently, Peter tabled Private Member’s Bill C-213 to establish universal public pharmacare, which would implement a national pharmacare program modelled after the Canada Health Act. This would allow all Canadians to access the medications that they rely on with their health card.
Peter’s Private Member’s Motion M-1, for a made-in-Canada Green New Deal remains the first and only legislative initiative of its kind before Canada’s Parliament.
Peter’s amazing track record and dedication to serving his constituents have allowed him to win six consecutive terms as an MP in his riding.
Since 2014, he has been serving in two key portfolios: Finance Critic and House Leader for the NDP.
As House Leader, Peter took on the role of Chief Negotiator for the federal NDP caucus in the 43rd Parliament for all the Covid related support programs and legislation. Over the past year, Peter has dedicated his time to ensure the federal government is extending support to everyone in our communities across Canada during this difficult time. Despite this, we still see seniors, families, and people with disabilities struggling to keep a roof over their heads and to put food on the table. With his continued efforts, Peter is continuously fighting to ensure that no one is being left behind!
