About David Graham

I served as the Member of Parliament for Laurentides—Labelle from 2015 to 2019 after 15 years working as a journalist in high technology, a political staffer, and an activist on issues such as democratic reform, digital rights and open source software, and public transit. I have lived and worked in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, and currently live in New Brunswick, where I continue to pursue my passions and live my values in private life.
