A civil engineer, Simon King has been working for the City of Longueuil for five years. Prior to this, he was the director of public works for the city of Témiscaming and was responsible for the development of the regional ecocenter. He also recently completed his MBA. In his work, Simon strives to design and implement municipal infrastructure projects in the interest of the population while minimizing the impact on the environment.
Sensitized to the devastating impacts of human activities on nature, Simon transformed many aspects of his personal life long before the pandemic began. He is an avid cyclist (even in winter) and has adopted a vegetarian diet. He also strives to make responsible consumer choices (local, fair trade, organic, zero waste, etc.). A nature lover and outdoor enthusiast, he never misses an opportunity to go hiking, biking, canoeing, snowshoeing or camping.
For the past few years, Simon has been an active member of the citizens' collective La Planète s'invite au Parlement. He has collaborated in the organization of an electoral debate on the environment, in the drafting of several petitions and in several demonstrations. When the opportunity arises, he does not hesitate to participate in activities such as the clean-up of the banks of the St. Lawrence River or tree planting.
Simon is very happy to meet the voters of Longueuil—Saint-Hubert and hopes to have the privilege of representing them in the House of Commons.
