Bruce Fanjoy Acclaimed as Carleton Federal Liberal Candidate for Next Election

The Liberal Party of Canada has announced that Manotick resident Bruce Fanjoy will be the candidate in the riding of Carleton for the next federal election.

Fanjoy won the nomination by acclamation. Although it was not made official until this month, he has been on the campaign trail door knocking for several months.

The Liberal Party of Canada tweeted on the X platform June 11, “Hey Pierre Poilievre: @brucefanjoy is coming for your job.”

Fanjoy has a Bachelor of Commerce degree (Dalhousie University) and a Master of Business Administration degree (Saint Mary’s University). He also studied French at Laval University. He has a business background, having worked for Comcheq, Ceridian, and Deloitte in which he served as Branch Manager, Product Manager, and Director of Marketing respectively.

In the community, he has worked as a volunteer in minor hockey, competitive swimming, and Habitat for Humanity. He is an advocate for safe cycling and was a previous board member of Bike Ottawa and the Manotick Village Community Association. He currently serves on the boards of Watson’s Mill Manotick Inc. and the Carleton Federal Liberal Association.

“With a strong focus on important new engagement with Canadians, the Team Trudeau nominations process helps ensure we’re ready to re-elect our dedicated Liberal team in Parliament and continue to elect even more talented, diverse, and hardworking community leaders as Liberal MPs across Canada, whenever the next campaign eventually arrives,” said a statement from Liberal Party of Canada National Co-Chairs Terry Duguid and Soraya Martinez Ferrada.

Fanjoy has been very active and vocal on social media platforms. His campaign has been focused on criticizing Carleton MP and Conservative Party of Canada leader Pierre Poilievre. He ends his posts with the hashtag #CarletonDeservesBetter. On Sunday, he posted an image of a blank piece of paper with the text saying “What Pierre Poilievre has accomplished for Canadians in 20 years.”

In a video posted earlier this month, Fanjoy attacked Poilievre. He started it by saying that 2004 was the year we got Pierre Poilievre.

“He was elected 20 years ago, and well, we don’t have a lot to show for it,” Fanjoy said.

“Throughout his career, he’s attacked workers and public servants, and fought for American-style anti-union laws in Canada.”

Fanjoy goes on to say that “Pierre Poilievre’s only priority has been to make deep cuts to programs that help Canadian families so that he can cut the taxes of his wealthy friends.”
