Wayne Phelan

Meet The Candidate

My name is Wayne Phelan and I am busy campaigning so I can be your Member of Parliament for the riding of Cardigan. I was born and raised in Charlottetown, graduating from UPEI with a Bachelor of Business Administration. I moved to Japan where I established an English language school (ESL) and co-owned a successful restaurant, PEI Pub, while studying Japanese. Upon returning to Prince Edward Island, I established a successful rural internet business and I now own an IT monitoring company.

I entered politics because of the no-commonsense-decisions that were made by a former Premier of PEI and the impact it had on my business, staff, family and the 1200 internet customers I serviced east of Pownal. Now I see these same decisions happening by the Prime Minister and his Cabinet; the broken promises and the forgotten needs of Islanders. I will do what Islanders need me to do. My wife and I along with our four children work hard and follow the rules and we expect our government to do the same.

I am not coming into this with all the answers. What I am offering is my commitment to listen, discuss and work with Islanders and not against them. What works in one part of Canada, may not work here in Eastern PEI and government must adopt this way of operating.
