Candidate for Co-chair (English) - Senior Liberals' Commission

Doug Brydges became an entrepreneur early in his work life, first as a fast food franchise owner and later as manager of a very successful automobile repair and performance centre. He transitioned into the media business in 1981 as editor, publisher and owner of an independent weekly newspaper and commercial printing business in northwestern Ontario. During the years that followed, Doug’s public service included 20 years as a Rotarian, two terms as a municipal councillor, two terms as a public school board trustee, and volunteer service as a director with several community-based development organizations.

Following his retirement in 2001, Doug and his family re-settled in Callander, outside of North Bay ON. He served two more terms as a municipal councillor and as a volunteer director with several community development organizations. As a part-time web application programmer, Doug continues to maintain numerous websites for a small client base.

Doug has been a member of the Liberal Party of Canada in the electoral district of Nipissing-Timiskaming and has volunteered in several capacities in federal election campaigns since 2004. In 2009, he was elected as EDA Vice-President, southern region, and has continued serving as Executive Vice-President since 2011.

In January 2009, Doug became volunteer administrator of En Famille , the Liberal Party of Canada’s first online community forum for party members and, for a short time, as administrator of another party initiative - Forum Liberalis.

During the Montreal Convention in 2014, Doug attended the Senior Liberals’ Commission (SLC) general meeting and, shortly after, was nominated for the position of SLC Communications Chair. He was appointed to the position in January 2015. He also served as the first Communications Chair with the Ontario SLC Section and became its Chair in February 2017.
