About John Redins
Our 2015 Federal Candidate

John Redins is a long-time organizer and volunteer, who is committed to building stronger communities throughout Ontario and Canada. John has been an area leader for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), for about 10 years. ACORN advocates for social and economic justice on behalf of low and middle-income members of the community.

John first became active in politics at the provincial level, when his hips collapsed and he experienced the failures of our healthcare system. Since that time, he has advocated for people living with disabilities.

John was inspired to enter the federal political arena by his sense that the decision making process of the current administration was increasingly being geared to extremely wealthy Canadians, with middle and low-income Canadians simply being an afterthought. He believes this needs to change, and would like to see more emphasis placed on ensuring average Canadians have access to affordable high-quality public services, whether that be education or prescription drug coverage.
