Alex has always been committed to establishing a democratic world community. He has participated in and founded various political groups and student clubs throughout his collegial, undergraduate, and graduate studies, including but not limited to the Debating League of Mississauga and Global Federalist Association. Alex's drive for world federalism is mixed with a non-partisan approach to politics and balanced with a respect for national and local sovereignty. Having worked at Elections Canada over the last few years dealing directly with candidates and political parties, Alex is most passionate about projects targeted towards establishing and reforming global democratic systems.
