Encyclopedia > Dave Levac

Dave Levac (born April 6, 1954 in Brantford, Ontario) is a politician in Ontario, Canada. He is currently a member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, representing the riding of Brant for the Ontario Liberal Party.

Levac was educated at Wilfrid Laurier University, Queen's University and Niagara University. He became a teacher in 1997, and a principal in Brantford in 1989. Levac received the Canada 125 Medal in 1993, was named OECTA Distinguished Teacher in 1994 for his work in conflict resolution programs, and was named Brantford's Citizen of the Year in 1997 by readers of the Expositor. He also served as co-ordinator of Queen Elizabeth II's visit to Brantford in 1997.

Levac was first elected to public office in the 1999 provincial election, defeating Progressive Conservative Alayne Sokoloski by 1194 votes in Brant. His victory was somewhat unexpected, in that most surrounding ridings were won by the Progressive Conservatives in this cycle. The Conservatives won a majority government in this election, and Levac sat as an opposition member for the next four years.

The Liberals won a majority government in the 2003 provincial election and Levac again defeated Sokoloski, this time by over 10,000 votes. Many anticipated that he would be appointed Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, as he had served as his party's official critic in a number of security-related portfolios since 1999. Instead, that position was given to Monte Kwinter, and Levac was named Chief Government Whip.
