Madawaska Les Lacs-Edmundston



Denis is from Connors in Haut-Madawaska where he lives and works on the family forestry farm.

He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with a major in History and a minor in Economics from St. Thomas University in Fredericton. As a student, he took part in the movement against shale gas in 2013.

In his community, Denis has taken part of various committees related to local history and museums since 2006. He was also part of an advisory committee for the local service district of Saint-François in 2012, and was an early voice in favour of creating the new rural community of Haut-Madawaska.

Denis has occupied different jobs: seasonal worker at the family farm, customer service representative, as well as caretaker for special needs adults and people with reduced mobility. In everything he has done, Denis has found happiness in service to others, his neighbours. Like many young people in Haut-Madawaska, Denis has also worked in the poultry industry as a pressure washer operator in different poultry farms in the region.

Denis has volunteered in his community since he was a teenager. He has always wished to work concretely for the benefit of the population, the preservation and restoration of the environment, the forest, lakes and watersheds of the region of Madawaska.

“I want the people to know that I intend to work for them, and for the land that we are borrowing from future generations. Every citizen of Madawaska Les Lacs-Edmundston will be my employer, and I want to represent them in the Legislative Assembly to defend their interests, their health and their well-being, all of this in total transparency.”




Our Principles

>Living within Our Ecological Means

A culture of cooperation, caring and understanding is essential to ending violence in our society. Rehabilitation rather than vengeance must be the goal of our justice system.

> Local Self-Reliance

We must have the opportunity and the responsibility as citizens to contribute to the common good, which requires that all have the capacity to participate in community life.

> Real Democracy

Everyone must have equal access to the necessities of life and be treated with dignity and respect. Treaties with First Nations must be honoured.

> Social Justice and Equality

We must be able to participate in decisions that affect our lives and be guaranteed that our votes are reflected in the make-up of the Legislative Assembly.

> Active Citizenship

Our communities should be in control of their own destinies, supported by strong local economies, and sustained by local sources of food and renewable energy.

> A Culture of Peace and Respect

We must live within the ecological limits of the Earth, while meeting our needs without threatening our children's future or the survival of other species.
