Even before he was first elected as the MLA for Tyndall Park in 2011, Ted was well known in the community for his volunteer work helping new Canadians. He helped families with their Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program applications, volunteered his time as a Commissioner for Oaths and worked as counsel at the Immigration and Refugee Board.

Ted studied law at the University of the Philippines and worked as a municipal and litigation attorney in Manila before immigrating to Canada with his family in 1980. He worked with the federal government for ten years, and also served as a panel member of the Residential Tenancies Commission of Manitoba. There he helped to ensure fairness and due process in disputes between landlords and tenants.

As MLA for Tyndall Park, Ted has worked hard to ensure all families have access to more opportunities in their home community. In particular, Ted is proud of the NDP government’s support for seniors and young people, two of the groups who need more supports in Tyndall Park. He also initiated the Tyndall Park Open Invitational Chess Tournament to involve participants from ages eight to 88 to enjoy each other’s company and exercise the mind.

With Ted championing the cause, Manitoba’s NDP government helped redevelop the playground and basketball court at École Stanley Knowles School, helped renovate the old Christie’s Biscuits Building into a new facility for Specialized Services for Children and Youth (SSCY) on Notre Dame, and completely renewed the Weston Memorial Community Centre.

Ted and Corie, his wife of more than 40 years, are blessed with eleven grandchildren.
