Jeremy is a fellow Albertan who believes in the importance of good government. He was born and raised in Calgary, and resides with his wife Janice in the beautiful community of Mount Pleasant. He is a visible minority of Chinese descent, and is proud Canadian, valuing the multicultural diversity and democratic values that make this country great.
His parents were once newcomers to this country, having escaped Vietnam in the wake of the war. The hospitality and opportunity that they received in Canada has inspired Jeremy to participate in civic leadership and seek to protect the freedoms and liberties that are the pillars of Canadian society.
