Biography

from their website
Jonathan is an associate professor at Mount Saint Vincent University and small business owner. He’s a champion for building more inclusive communities and making sure everyone has access to nutritious food to feed their families. Jonathan teaches the history of medicine and food. Alongside his wife Mary Nkrumah, he helps operate Kicks Café at the BMO Soccer Centre in Clayton Park, and Mary’s African Cuisine in downtown Halifax.

Jonathan knows that working families in Halifax West were left behind during the pandemic. Justin Trudeau let Canada’s wealthiest and well-connected make record profits while families struggled to make rent, and local businesses their doors.

Jonathan knows that Canada’s pandemic recovery must build a fairer economy that works for you. He’s ready to make life more affordable by making sure everyone has a safe place to call home. He believes everyone should be able to afford their prescription medication, mental health services, and dental care with their health card – not their credit card. Jonathan knows we need long-term solutions that tackle the climate crisis with bold emission reduction targets and good sustainable jobs. He is standing up for real action to help create a better future for the next generation.

Jonathan has always worked hard to help others in his community. He is an active member of his union and community organizations like the African Diaspora Association of the Maritimes (ADAM). As a member of ADAM, he helped refugee families settle, and begin their lives, in Clayton Park.

Raising his four children in the community, he knows we can work together to create real change. He’s ready to fight for everyday people in Ottawa as your Member of Parliament.
