Dr Peter McLoughlin grew up in Sydney. After graduating from medical school, he spent four years studying and working in South Africa during the Apartheid era, where he saw the effects of oppression firsthand. Returning to Australia, he settled in Perth, married, had a family, and ran a busy anaesthetic practice.
Dr McLoughlin joined the Liberal Democrats in 2018. He has been horrified by the way governments and health bureaucrats have exaggerated the pandemic, creating unnecessary fear in the community to justify the emergency powers, silencing the dissenters and crushing the freedoms we used to take for granted.
Peter was a candidate for the seat of Joondalup in the 2021 State Election. He is on the WA Executive and as serves as Treasurer. He will be a clear voice in the Parliament for the victims of government oppression and for everyone who values liberty.
