Early life and career

I was born in BudapestHungary. I emigrated to Canada with my family in 1957 as a refugee following the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. I attended the University of Waterloo in the 1970s. I served two terms as president of the Federation of Students, UW’s student union, from 1973-1974. After graduating, I became executive director of Youth in Conflict with the Law, and was a board member of the Working Centre (St. John’s Soup Kitchen). I was also appointed to the board of governors of Wilfrid Laurier University.

I was a city councillor for Waterloo City Council from 1985 to 1993. In this office he also sat as a city representative as a regional councillor for the RM of Waterloo.
