Corey believes that the benefits of union members also benefit the rest of society and he is a proud member of the Public Sector Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and was previously an engaged member of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and the Union of Public Sector Employees (UPSE). Frizzell also held several executive positions with his former union’s local GSU90031, including vice president and acting president.  


In the past, as a private citizen, Corey has been active in environmental and traffic safety initiatives in an effort to improve the quality of life for all Cornwall residents: 

In 2014, Corey partnered with the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) by coordinating a free rain barrel give away to over 500 Cornwall residents.

Along with a group of residents, Corey collaborated with them to petition the Town council and mayor to implement restrictions on the use of cosmetic pesticides within the town.

On two separate occasions, Corey petitioned the Town of Cornwall to implement traffic safety measures in his area and was successful in convincing them to erect two speed bumps and two stop signs on a busy side street.
