Liberal Candidate for Simcoe Grey - June 7th

Posted On: Saturday, April 28, 2018

Daniel Hambly, Liberal Candidate for Simcoe Grey was the speaker at the Citizens Forum on Monday April 30th.

Liberal Candidate for Simcoe Grey - June 7th


I am Dan Hambly  - the Ontario Liberal candidate in Simcoe–Grey for the June 2018 provincial election.

I was born and raised in Essa Township, and  graduated from Banting Memorial High School in Alliston.

My father was the manager of an auto garage in Alliston. As a boy, I used to love going in with him and watching the mechanics work. I also watched and listened as my father spoke with the customers. I met Ontarians from all walks of life, and I heard about their lives, their dreams, their concerns.

It was on the ice at the Thornton Arena where I received my first lessons in teamwork. We always performed better when we supported each other and when we played as a team.  I’ve always felt that we Ontarians are a team too; when we strive together, and look out for one another, we’re capable of great things.

As a professional singer, I’ve performed all over the world, getting my start as a founding member of both the New Tecumseth Singers and the Alliston Community Theatre. I also found guidance early on from the fantastic teachers who inspired me while at Banting Memorial.

Education, however, has been the main focus of my career. For most of my professional life I have taught college and university students. Since 2005, I have been a history professor at Humber College and I like to think that over this time I’ve made a difference in the lives of thousands of students who have taken my courses.

Looking forward, I realize that as your MPP, I can continue making a difference, although in a different way. I am a firm believer that government has a role to play in lifting people up.  The Liberal government has made this a priority and so I wish to continue their work by being a part of the Liberal team towards a better, brighter Ontario.
