Press Release: Francophones Matter & NOP’s New Deputy Leader

For immediate release.

Due to the neglect the Ford government has put upon the Francophone community, the Northern Ontario Party Executive Board has appointed Shawn P. Poirier (Interim Vice President and 2018 Timiskaming-Cochrane Candidate) as the Deputy League of the Party.

Shawn Poirier’s passion for Norhtern Ontario and ALL people of Northern Ontario has been proven time and again. He has already assisted the party in becoming a fully bilingual party and continues to assist or lead any questions and interviews as needed.

Ford has taken aim at the Francophone community, which Northern Ontario holds close as it is part of what makes Northern Ontario so amazing. Northern Ontarians attend French school all the way through, and then at university they are forced to attend English courses. This is discrimination and the middle finger to Northern Ontario’s Francophone community. (Learn more)

Many new changes and adaptations will be coming in 2019 for the Northern Ontario Party to ensure the party is ready for the next election which is about ALL Northern Ontarians First!

Northern Ontario Party Leader

Published by Trevor Holliday

Born and raised in Nipissing district, Trevor’s grandfather was the founder/owner of the Northern Ontario courier company for over 30 years “Road Runner Express” based out of North Bay and serviced a lot of the remote places where others would not go. It was very much a family business and he believed in treating EVERY customer as family as well. Trevor spent a lot of time with his father, John Holliday, on his routes. When the business was sold shortly after Trevor’s grandfather’s passing, Trevor was constantly working in the service and customer service industries. Trevor is a graduate of Canadore College Police Foundations out of North Bay. Trevor is a father of 4 children who want a very prosperous future for his children and hopefully grandchildren here in Northern Ontario. He is a motor coach operator for Ontario Northland which brings him back to his roots of serving the people of Northern Ontario. Northern Ontario flows through his veins and the passion for making Northern Ontario stronger than ever is second to none. In Jan 2016, he created a petition calling for Northern Ontario to become its own province collecting around 4,500 signatures. A few months later Trevor met Edward Deibel (Party Founder and Leader at the time) and discussed joining the NOHP (Northern Ontario Heritage Party). Trevor then joined the party and once Edward Deibel retired as Party Leader, Trevor was appointed to the position. His passion fired up more than ever and the foundation, party name, and party direction was put into place, re-establishing the party as a voice for Northern Ontarians.
