In a media release issued by Nickel Belt Conservative candidate Charles Humphrey’s campaign on Monday, his education and world experience appear front and centre.

The 36-year-old lives in Azilda with his wife, Angelene, and their two daughters, Sasha, 5, and Charlotte, 2. 

He is originally from Toronto and has lived in Greater Sudbury for five years.

The candidate holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and contemporary studies as well as a master’s degree in international relations, both from Dalhousie University in Halifax.

He also holds diplomas in primary and advanced care paramedicine from Georgian College.

“My French is slightly less polished than my English and I speak Mandarin at a high level of fluency reading at an elementary school level, and speak good conversational Japanese and Spanish,” he said, adding that he has recently begun studying Nishnaabemwin.

Humphrey lived and worked in rural Japan for a year as well as the People’s Republic of China for three and a half years. He currently works for the City of Greater Sudbury as an advanced care paramedic.

“I am running because Conservatives are the only alternative to secure the future, restore competence, transparency and accountability to government and ensure Canada is never unprepared for a crisis again,” he said.

“All of my experience and expertise in international relations, energy policy and healthcare tell me that very poor decisions are being made that could have terrible consequences. Canada’s Recovery Plan is what we need to get our country back on track.”

In Nickel Belt, Humphrey faces off against incumbent Liberal MP Marc Serré, New Democrat, Andréane Chénier and Green party candidate Craig Gravelle.

In the Sudbury riding, Liberal Viviane Lapointe is running against New Democrat Nadia Verrelli,  Conservative candidate Dr. Ian Symington, and People’s Party of Canada candidate Colette Methé.

The nomination process for candidates closes on Aug. 30, and a complete list of candidates for the Sept. 20 election is expected to be available through Elections Canada on Sept. 1.
