About Greg

Greg was first elected as the MLA for Yorkton in the 2007 provincial election, and was re-elected in 2011 and 2016. He is a long-time resident of Yorkton and a man who has always been involved in his community.

The charity is named in honour of their son, Brayden, who lost his battle with cancer in 2000 at age 5. Close to $1 million has been raised for cancer research and local cancer initiatives.
