Sheldon Clare, Independent federal candidate for Cariboo-Prince George riding

Independent federal candidate for Cariboo-Prince George riding

Sheldon Clare

Sheldon Clare teaches history and English at the College of New Caledonia. He is a retired army reserve officer and the current president of the National Firearms Association. Sheldon is running as an independent candidate because he believes the party system in Ottawa is broken, and in order to ensure strong representation, Cariboo-Prince George must elect a Member of Parliament who listens to voters rather than just a party whip.

Sheldon was born and raised in Prince George, and has called this region home all his life. He has been deeply involved as a community leader for many years.  Sheldon is a past president of the Prince George Legion, past president of the Rod and Gun Club, and past chair of the Alpine Club’s Prince George section. Most recently, Sheldon has helped elevate the profile of the Caledonia Nordic Ski Club through his work as the volunteer biathlon sports information officer in the 2015 Canada Winter Games.  He was also the race director and organizer for the rejuvenated Northern Hardware Canoe Race.

If elected, Sheldon has committed to fight for local issues, such as diversifying our economy, keeping door-to-door delivery for seniors, reducing student debt, and re-establishing services for veterans.
