Derek Sharp is a 42 year old father of 3, and a stay-at-home dad to his two young daughters. In 2015, he and his wife, Cheri, moved to Colborne from Ajax to make a better and more peaceful life for their children, away from the city.
Derek has spent most of his life in service to his community. He has been a volunteer in Jr. A hockey, working for 6 different Ontario Junior Hockey League teams over his 16 years as a volunteer. He was a member of the Kinsmen Club of Ajax for many years, serving three terms on the Executive Committee. He has been a member of the Royal Canadian Legion for several years, having served on the executive of Branch 322 in Ajax.
Derek has organized and promoted many fundraiser events, having successfully raised money for Autism Ontario, The Royal Canadian Legion, the Kinsmen, and some of the hockey teams for which he worked.
Derek has had a long interest in politics, and has managed multiple municipal campaigns. He joins the Trillium Party of Ontario as a Candidate, and a voter who is disenchanted with the direction that democracy has taken in Ontario; namely the stranglehold the Liberals, PCs, and NDP have on our government institutions, and their blatant disregard for our Constitution.
Derek is looking forward to trying to make a difference, and spread the Trillium Party promise of “Something Different, Something Better”.
