Meet Your MP

Garnett Genuis is the Member of Parliament for Sherwood Park–Fort Saskatchewan in Alberta, Canada. Since his election in 2015, he has gained a reputation for being among the most outspoken parliamentarians, having spoken more than 100,000 words in the Chamber during his first year in office – more than all three major party leaders combined.

Garnett grew up in Strathcona County and got involved in his community through volunteering with various organizations, including a local care centre. During this time he also developed an interest in human rights issues around the world, largely inspired by his maternal grandmother, a Holocaust survivor. 

At age 15, he began writing a column for Sherwood Park News for which he continues to be a regular contributor as an MP. His columns also appear regularly in the Fort Saskatchewan Record and The Post Millennial, and he has written columns for Macleans, Huffington PostPolicy Options, and The Catholic World Report.

He has served as the Deputy Shadow Minister of Foreign Affairs, a role that enables him to raise awareness about international human rights violations and promote a return to Canada’s principle-based foreign policy. Here at home, he has also given speeches on the carbon taxpipelinesfirearmssupporting people with disabilitiesthe “me too” movement, and many other hot topics.
