Dr. Greg Douglas
Greg is a proud western Canadian, born in Regina, who spent his younger childhood in Winnipeg before moving back to the family farm outside of McTaggart, Saskatchewan. He has family throughout the Souris Moose Mountain riding – his father’s family farmed outside of Yellow Grass, and his mother’s family farmed outside of Oxbow.
Greg is a practising veterinarian, with extensive experience grain farming, working within both the provincial and federal governments, as well as in the food industry.
Greg graduated from Weyburn Comprehensive School, and then went on to study at the University of Saskatchewan, receiving two degrees while maintaining his ties to the Weyburn community through his ongoing farming, as well as his first stint working at the local vet clinic.
After graduation Greg worked as a veterinarian in Alberta, and building on his keen interest in public policy, transitioned into working for the federal and provincial governments, eventually becoming Chief Veterinary Officer of Saskatchewan. He kept ties to his alma mater, serving on the advisory committee of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. He also continued to farm with his family and is a former Director of Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association.
Greg then moved to Ontario and was the Chief Veterinarian for Ontario. During that time, he took an active leadership role within the government, as Chair of the Council of Chief Veterinary Officers, among other roles, gaining valuable experience on the inner workings of government. After his time with the Ontario government, Greg was an executive at a major Canadian food company.
But Greg is a prairie boy at heart and moved back to Weyburn to be closer to family and practice veterinary medicine within his home community. Greg is now a partner in that same vet clinic he worked at during his student years, Prairie Animal Health Centre, and is a proud business owner providing quality large and small animal care in Estevan and Weyburn. He considers himself lucky to have gotten to know the people, pets, and livestock of these communities.
Greg enjoys spending time with family on the farm, and up at the lake in the summer. He is the proud father of three children and has many fond memories of coaching hockey and baseball.
As the Maverick MP candidate for Souris-Moose Mountain, Greg will take his experience, strong work ethic, and care for the people of southeastern Saskatchewan, to best represent the West. His main aim in Ottawa will be simple – it is time for the West to stand up for ourselves and be better represented, ensuring we get an equal voice at the table and safeguarding a better future for our children and grandchildren.
