Bruce Young heads up the Vancouver, British Columbia office of Earnscliffe Strategy Group.

After completing a degree in political science at the University of British Columbia Young worked former cabinet minister David Dingwall "before running campaign workshops across Canada to prepare Liberal riding associations for the 1997 election." [1]

He then worked as the director of government relations in Ottowa for Bell Canada. He subsequently established the Vancouver office of Hill & Knowlton. The George Straight reported that Young worked "for a coalition supporting privatized health care, for the fish-farming industry through the British Columbia Salmon Farmers Association, and for major corporations like Bell Canada and Via Rail". [2]

In December 2003 Hill & Knowlton announced that Young had "accepted a role with the Liberal Party of Canada election team, focusing on western issues and election readiness." [3]]

After Paul Martin was elected as the leader of the Liberal Party, Young was appointed "senior special advisor (B.C.), prime minister's office". Writing in The Georgia Strait, Bill Tieleman noted that Youngs appointment was challenged in February 2004 by NDP member of parliament, Bev Desjarlais.[4]

Tieleman noted that Young returned to Vancouver to "establish an Earnscliffe Strategy Group office in Vancouver."
