Cornwall, Prince Edward Island – Long-time Cornwall resident Mark McLane today announced that he is seeking the Progressive Conservative nomination for the upcoming by-election in District 16, Cornwall-Meadowbank.
As a former resident of Chateau Estates, Mark has been living in Primrose Point since 2004 and is eager to serve as the MLA for District 16. Mark graduated from UPEI in 1993 from the Bachelor of Business Administration program. Mark’s career included being an award-winning entrepreneur who received the 1999 Business Development Bank of Canada Young Entrepreneur Award at the age of 29. Mark has also been the president of a publicly traded information technology company and most recently, the Executive Director of the non-profit association, Golf PEI.

He also volunteered countless hours for field hockey and soccer.
“As my children become young adults, I am eager to help shape a strong future for our next generation. My experience in business, the non-profit sector, and my volunteer roles have provided me with a strong skill set to support the constituents of Cornwall – Meadowbank and advocate on their behalf,” said McLane. “I am inspired by Premier King and the PC government. Premier King has a strong sense of humility, an obvious passion, and pride for PEI. He is sincere, authentic, and takes a collaborative approach to government and decision-making. Issues that matter to my family and community such as education, health care, and sustainable community growth are priorities for this government, and I want to be part of this team.”
“The Cornwall-Meadowbank area is a vibrant community and I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. This is a pivotal time and as our community continues to grow, I want to be your voice in government and work hard for all residents of the District.”
