Nomination Date: 22/07/2019
Larry Flemming is a professional engineer who lives in Churchill Falls. Born and raised in a rural community, Larry learned early in life that there is dignity in hard work, spending his summers and falls working on local farms. It was this exposure to proud, hard-working farmers that instilled in Larry, his conservative values and provided a means to further his education.
A passion for building and fixing led Larry to seek a career in mechanical engineering, earning degrees from the University of New Brunswick (B.Sc. Eng) and McGill University (MBA). Larry has been an entrepreneur and worked in both private and public sectors, managing major capital projects in the forest products, agri-food and energy industries in Canada and overseas. Larry has served in the Canadian Armed Forces as a reservist and attended Collège Militaire Royal.
Larry’s commitment to community has always been strong. He has worked to improve opportunities for youth through coaching and organizing hockey, rugby and alpine skiing. Involvement in student government and school council has allowed him to promote the needs and stand up for those he has represented in their educational pursuits.
Larry will always put Labrador and its people first and work with them to create opportunity, address challenges and celebrate Labrador’s heritage. Between now and election day (Oct. 21), Larry will be travelling across Labrador to meet, listen to and learn from youth, seniors, tradespeople, professionals, small business owners and Indigenous leaders. He will lay out a Conservative vision for Labrador that embraces our strong resource economy that makes it a point of pride and prosperity for Labradorians.
