Demontis enters federal race

Mark DeMontis is the Conservative candidate for York South–Weston.

DeMontis previously ran as a Progressive Conservative in the provincial election, and he did reasonably well, getting 18.5% of the vote in a left-leaning riding.

DeMontis lost most of his sight in high-school. He had to give up his dreams of playing professional hockey, but his career didn’t slow. He roller-bladed across the country  raising money for blind hockey, and he became a television commentator and motivational coach.


DeMontis is the third entrant in what is sure to be a good race. Yafet Tewelde is running for the NDPAhmed Hussen, the Minister of Immigration, will likely be seeking reëlection, and Yafet Tewelde, among others are seeking the NDP nomination.

  1. Yes, but will he be allowed to actually speak & debate, this time???

    The Ford Campaign didn’t want their reps engaging – perhaps for fear that they’d mis-speak the campaign’s mantra, de jour and blow it. (What were some of those fun Premier Dougie slogans again, “Friends, it’s promises made, promises kept”, “Folks, Buck-a-beer is here” , etc.)

    Anyway, those “crickets” from the blue team side of the playing field included the young, home grown and wanna be Conservative, Mr. DeMontis.

    Sadly, all muzzled – for the good of the “brand”, it strongly appeared.

    Electorate, take a back seat.

    Will Andrews Scheer’s back roomers do like wise to this election’s blue team hopefuls – who like Ford’s players, it was their election to win – because of McGuinty/Wynne mismanagement?

    Is Mark a “truth teller”, “speak truth to power” feller, a “team player” , a “dog whistler”, or a true spokesperson for the people he’s asking to represent here in York South-Weston?

    (add additional cliches here)

    We’ll see.
    (6 months of rhetoric, coming up!)

    At least, he lives amongst us.
