Director – Mike Schouten
Mike Schouten has been the campaign director of WeNeedaLAW.ca since its launch in 2012. Mike has had a lifelong interest in politics and the sanctity of human life, and his position as campaign director blends these two passions wonderfully.
Aside from directing the day to day affairs of the campaign, Mike has been published many times in the National Post, Vancouver Sun, and the Calgary Herald. He also has been interviewed by Sun News, CBC News, CPAC and various radio talk shows across the country.
Mike lives in Metro Vancouver with his wife Jennifer and their six children. His goal for this campaign is to bury the status quo by helping to enact the first pro-life law this country has seen in nearly 30 years, and his ultimate goal is that Canada will have full legal protection for all pre-born children.
