Shannon works for a non profit that advocates for at risk youth in the Kitchener area.

She says she opposes the Liberal Government’s plan to implement a carbon tax that would have a disproportionately negative financial impact on lower-income Canadians and senior citizens.  She says Justin Trudeau's Liberals' policies are deeply rooted in an ideology that inhibits freedom of thought and expression and if she was given the opportunity she would advocate for individuals' freedom of conscience, religion, and personal choice of how they wish to live their life.

Huntsville Mayor Scott Aitchison has also indicated that he is exploring the idea of seeking the nomination.
