He first came to public attention as a leading member of G.U.A.R.D. (Grassroots United Against Reform's Demise), a group opposed to the United Alternative process which formed the Canadian Alliance from the Reform Party of Canada. When the Canadian Alliance did eventually merge with the Progressive Conservatives, Stubbs declared he would not support the new Conservative Party. Instead he moved to provincial politics, becoming leader of the Alberta Party in pursuit of Reform Party ideals, such as democratic reform. He led the party through the provincial election of 2004, running in the riding of Strathcona, and the election of 2008, not contesting any riding.
Stubbs is the son of former mayor of Dartmouth, NS, Eileen Stubbs. Born in Nova Scotia, he moved to Alberta in 1974. He is the father of five children: Shannon (Conservative MP for Lakeland), Gordon, Melanie, Carter and Rachel. Along with his wife Kim, his family maintained a berry farm on Range Road 834, north of Hwy 16. In the summer of 2002, the family moved into Sherwood Park, Alberta.
