The Victoria Review
Gercon Bonn has maintained a newspaper since his first week in Canada, where he made his start in the world. The Victoria Review's first major story covered the political takeover of Ireland by Victor Petrescu in August 2008. He obtained one of the first interviews with Victor Petrescu after the event. This publication helped to launch Gercon Bonn into the Political and Social arenas. After moving to Australia in December of 2008, Gercon Bonn has primarily used The Victoria Review for editorial and campaign purposes.
Long an advocate of free trade and relaxed economic policies, Gercon Bonn has maintained active roles in the right lean parties of his homelands.

In Australia, Gercon Bonn fronted much of the cost for the foundation of the right-leaning Australian National Party.
Gercon Bonn has served in several cabinets, in both Canada and Australia, as a Minister and Deputy Minister in several capacities.
