Living and working within the farming and lakefront community for his entire life, Scot is passionate about his community and is committed to small business and the health of Lake Simcoe.

As Member of Parliament, Scot Davidson has introduced legislation to protect Lake Simcoe, ban the export of non-recyclable plastic waste, and provide financial protection for Canada’s fresh fruit and vegetable growers. Under the leadership of Pierre Poilievre, Scot currently serves as the Official Opposition Shadow Minister for Red Tape Reduction, where he uses his firsthand experience as a small business owner to make sure Canada’s innovative small businesses are not burdened by needless regulations.
