Who is Tony Vandermaas? I am a retiree from Stelco/Hamilton Steel/U.S. Steel Canada where I served most of my years there as a union steward and health & safety rep., as well as a volunteer to a number of committees. I went back to school as an adult and graduated from Niagara College from Business Administration – Human Resources Management and hold a number of related union and management certificates as well as a Legal Assistant certificate.

Actively involved in federal and provincial politics since I was nine years old, I am former City of Thorold City Councillor, Thorold’s Offical Town Crier since 1999, presently Library Board Chair, Tourism Advisory Committee Chair, Lake Gibson Corridor Preservation Task Force Chair, and a member of the Thorold Recreation Committee and the Thorold War of 1812 Committee as Event Coordinator. I was a political columnist for the former Thorold News and the former Thorold Voice and reporter, photographer and columnist for the former on-line publication, WhatsOnThorold.com. There’s more, but that’s more than enough.
