John MacAlpine


I feel a great deal of pride in the part I have played in a very busy term of council working throughout Ward 1 and look forward to continuing in the planning and implantation of projects we are currently working on if reelected. MacLean’s Magazine a couple of years ago ranked Brant County as one of the top 10 best communities to live in. It has been my greatest priority to try and retain that quality of life that we have created as we grow for all ages. It is going to be a busy term in the ward as development speeds up and it is more important than ever to see it doesn’t get out of control.

I grew up south of St. George on Highway 99 and spent a great deal of time in my youth working on neighbours’ farms and I have operated MacAlpine Furniture for 40 years now and with my wife Susan for the last 16 years. We have been married for 23 years now.

Over the course of the next 6 weeks, I look forward to talking to community members and hearing their thoughts and priorities as we shape the future of Ward 1.


It is now over 40 years since I started MacAlpine Furniture in St. George. My wife Susan has been working with me for over 16 years and we have sold our clocks around the world.
