Rick Peterson

CPC leadership candidate

I am a fluently bilingual businessman with strong Conservative roots, who makes his living at a full time job in the private sector. I’m not a career politician. I run a small business – four of us - that helps Canada’s leading entrepreneurs find the capital they need to grow, create jobs, pay taxes and keep Canada strong.

Like so many Canadians who run small businesses, I have no guaranteed salary. No pension plan. No health benefits. No taxpayer assisted travel or perks.
