Trustee for CS MonAvenir

Gilles Roy: Father, husband, community member, BA, MA, MD. Trustee for CS MonAvenir.

Who I am:

My name is Gilles Roy. I am a French Catholic and I would like to run for trustee for the French Catholic School Board. I am originally from New Brunswick. I have been married for over 20 years. I have been living here in Cambridge for over 10 years. I have 4 children. Three of them go to Saint Noël Chabanel in Cambridge and the older one goes to Pierre René de Galinée in Cambridge.

Credentials and background:

I have a BA and an MA degree in sexology from l’Université du Québec à Montréal. I have a MD from the l’Université d’Ottawa. I did my residency at Dalhousie University. I have been working as a full-time doctor in the Emergency Department at Cambridge Memorial Hospital for over 10 years.

What I bring to the table:

  • I have no experience in politics. I propose this can be a good thing.
  • I bring an alternative voice. I bring diversity of thought.
  • I want to get involved to protect, first and foremost the interest of our children and the interest of the parents.
  • I want to represent (what I believe to be) the silent majority.
  • The ideology of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI and also known as Critical Race Theory) has ample representation at the table. I do not subscribe to this ideology. I believe Canada is fundamentally a good place and that our Charter of Rights and Freedoms already covers the overt things that the ideology of DEI/CRT claims to be advocating (at a fraction of the cost).
  • I am not affiliated to any union. That being said, unions are a good thing. I have nothing against them. They do a lot of good. But their primary interest is to represent its members. Let me be that lone voice whose primary interest is the children and parents. These things are not mutually exclusive but one cannot deny that there is a hierarchy of priorities.

Money:

The pay for this position is a token amount. I think it’s about 6000$ a year. I am not doing this for the money. In fact, I pledge to donate my pay to the school.
Please help me raise money for my campaign. The money is used for stationary, stamps, a PO Box rental and things as such. Donations are not tax deductible for this kind of thing (sorry).
However, if I can get some help to raise money for my campaign that would be great. You can donate by E-transfer to gilles_j_roy@hotmail.com
