Doug Finley Biography



Michael Douglas Finley (born July 25, 1946) is a Canadian Senator and was formerly Campaign Director for the Conservative Party of Canada during the 2006 and 2008 federal elections and the party's director of Political Operations. He is described often as Prime Minister Stephen Harper's "number two man" who vets and disciplines candidates and MPs. He has also been involved with the Scottish National Party and the former Reform and Canadian Alliance parties (which was eventually dissolved into the current Conservative Party). Finley, among others is credited with developing the political game plan which led to the downfall of the Liberal Party of Canada from "Canada's Natural Governing Party" to the third place party in the House of Commons and largely considered to be out of the running for national leadership for years to come.


On August 27, 2009, it was announced that Finley would be appointed to the Senate. Upon his appointment the position of National Campaign Director was discontinued, replaced with National Campaign Manager and National Campaign Chair.


Finley is married to cabinet minister Diane Finley.
