Ron Le Blanc
My name is Ronald Marcel Joseph Herman Le Blanc, I am 38 years old. I work as a senior purchasing assistant for the Federal Government, and I am an Artist. I’ve worked at Public Works Government Services Canada for the last 10 years, I was elected to Vice-President of Local 70055 in 2008 under Government Service Union of PSAC (Public Service Alliance Canada) and I really enjoyed my work there. In September of 2009 I was elected to a 3 year term as Regional Vice President of Government Services Union (GSU) under PSAC for the National Capital Region (NCR) and have gained valuable knowledge on union matters, equal treatment of people, ethics in government, and integrity in all matters. I sit as Co-Chair of the NCA Regional Health and Safety Committee, about 150 health and safety committees report to this committee.

On my off time I like to paint using acrylic on canvas, photography, taking care of animals. I have 1 ferret which I just adore with all my heart. I care very deeply about social and political issues that affect the general population and the environment. I am an honest person almost to the point of fault. My friends would say I am loyal, trustworthy and make a very decent individual, I’ve had 2 (two) art shows in the past and have sold a number of pieces of painting and photographs.
Thank you for reading my short biography, don’t forget the election date is October 25, 2010
