Richard Caron

Meet The Candidate

Richard Caron is the Conservative Party of Canada candidate in Victoria.

Richard is a chef who has worked at several top restaurants in Victoria since moving here in 2011. A married father of two young children, Richard and his wife chose to make their life in Victoria to enjoy the year-round quality of life, job opportunities, and natural environment.

Richard has experienced life across Canada. Growing up with an entrepreneurial mother and a father in the RCMP, Richard lived in number of  communities in the Prairies before settling in his hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba. He chose Prince Edward Island for culinary school and spent time in Alberta and BC before choosing Victoria to put down roots and raise his family.

Richard is motivated to run for public office because he is concerned about the trajectory of Canadian politics. Justin Trudeau has not delivered on his promises to Canadians, and four years later we are facing uncertainty, a loss of standing on the world stage, and an affordability crisis. He wants his two sons to grow up in a Canada full of opportunity, strong and free.

Richard is drawn to the positive Conservative vision for Canada. He knows that Andrew Scheer, as a father of young children, understands the challenges facing young families like his. He looks forward to representing the residents of Victoria in Ottawa.
