Brian and his wife Esther live in Winnipeg with their two daughters. Brian became Leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba in July 2012 and in September of that year, he was elected to represent the constituency of Fort Whyte.
First entering politics in 1992 as a member of the
Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba, Brian served as a cabinet minister
in the Government of Gary Filmon until 1997.
In 1997, he moved to federal politics and was elected three times. He was appointed as chair of the House of Commons Finance Committee in 2005, and in 2007 was appointed parliamentary secretary to the Ministers of International Trade and International Cooperation.
While in public office, Brian championed legislation to protect the rights of women on First Nation reserves, public safety initiatives and tough legislation to protect taxpayers against government overspending and overtaxing.
Today, he is eager to work hard as Leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition and to meet with and engage Manitobans in building a stronger Manitoba. He and the PC team are working hard to fight against the PST hike and for a government that respects taxpayers rights.
