Gary Lunn

Gary Vincent Lunn, PC (born May 8, 1957, Trail, British Columbia) is a former Canadian Member of Parliament for the British Columbia riding of Saanich—Gulf Islands. His controversial political legacy has been marred by serious questions in the media about the possibility of election campaign over-spending from as far back as 2008 and his noted anti-environmental record when he was "trying to push nuclear power, rev up the oil sands, and make way for more pipelines and supertankers on B.C.'s coast.". He served in the House of Commons from 1997 to 2011, first as a member of the Reform Party of Canada and subsequently as a member of the Canadian Alliance and the Conservative Party of Canada. He was Minister of State (Sport) in the Cabinet of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Official Opposition Critic for Métis and Non-Status Indians, Minister of State for Northern Development, and Critic of the Secretary of State for Human Resources Development. Lunn lost his seat in the 2011 federal election in Canada in an upset to the Leader of the Green Party, Elizabeth May.
