Seeking the Conservative nomination in Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound
A TRUSTED VOICE
Alex Ruff is a proud Canadian and a trusted, proven leader dedicated to serving his community and country. He won the federal Conservative nomination on Monday, April 22nd, 2019 and became the Conservative candidate for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound (BGOS). Subsequently, on October 21st, 2019 at the conclusion of the federal election, he was elected to the 43rd Parliament as the Member of Parliament (MP) for BGOS. He grew up on a farm just outside Tara and is no stranger to the unique issues facing a rural riding. He attended Chesley District High School (CDHS) and spent his summers farming and lifeguarding at the Tara Pool.
With multiple postings across Canada, he has developed a huge appreciation for the vast diversity and challenges that face everyday Canadians. Alex has always maintained his deep connections to the local community through his involvement with the Tara Legion and local community events. He frequently speaks to schools across the region, attends local Remembrance Day events and has even opened the Desboro Fall Fair.
In 1997, Alex graduated from Royal Military College with an Honours Bachelors of Space Science degree, and subsequently went on to command troops as an infantry officer in The Royal Canadian Regiment. He has extensive experience with six operational deployments including the 1998 ice storm in Eastern Ontario and Quebec, two in Bosnia, two in Afghanistan and most recently in Iraq. From his 2007 combat deployment to Afghanistan, he was awarded the Meritorious Service Cross by the Governor General due to his "outstanding leadership...in defeating a determined enemy."
Recently, he returned home from a posting in Baghdad, Iraq, as a key leader in the international efforts to defeat ISIS terrorists in the region.
Alex believes that politicians represent the people who elected them, first and foremost. He would be honoured to continue his deep commitment to serve as the next Member of Parliament in Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound where he can put his youth, experience and passion to work ensuring the constituents of this incredible riding are represented.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2019, ALEX RUFF FOR BRUCE-GREY-OWEN SOUND
We're into the final few days of this election before you cast your ballot. As you're making your choice, I'd like to offer the following:
1. A personal thanks to the other candidates from the other parties who came forward to run. It is never easy putting yourself out in the public eye. I've been serving in the public eye for over 25 years now but the last 10 months have elevated the level of scrutiny.
2. Thanks to all my supporters, friends, family and our volunteer team that worked so hard throughout the campaign and the pre-writ period leading up to the campaign. P.S. Don't let up now, we only have a few more days until you can take a breather.
3. Thanks to Larry Miller, Bill Walker and Bill Murdoch for setting the example of politicians that represent the people of Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound first and foremost.
4. Thanks to all of you who have already voted and who will vote on Monday, October 21, 2019. Participating in the democratic process is arguably one of the most important things we can do regardless of who or what party you vote for. I've been in many countries where people don't have the privilege or right to vote. Please vote.
