The new MP for Dartmouth–Cole Harbour was a Halifax Regional Councillor for more than five years. He was elected by his fellow councillors as Deputy Mayor in 2012. He resigned from city council after being elected to the House of Commons. He won the riding with 58 per cent of the vote. Fisher says his priority is to make sure the federal government is a strong partner for the region.
Before his election to city council, Fisher was the co-owner of a business that operated three convenience stores in the Halifax region. He also volunteered around the community working with schools and local sports teams to fundraise. He is passionate about the Canada Child Tax Benefit and believes that the program will benefit the Halifax region and lift children out of poverty.
Fisher is married and has a son and a daughter. Both children swim with the Mic Mac Amateur Aquatic Club. He was born and raised in Dartmouth–Cole Harbour, where his family has lived for generations.
