I was Born in Regina Saskatchewan in 1966 and the youngest of 5 children. We moved to Swift Current, Sask. when I was 4 where I attended school right through to graduation. In 1984 upon graduation my father supplied me with a reliable yet basic vehicle and a few hundred dollars and told me to head west.
I looked for work everywhere and landed in Prince George B.C. where I worked as a ranch hand for a few months until the summer was over. After a large hassle with the unemployment office I headed back to Swift Current and landed a job working on a pipeline crew, this was accomplished by showing up on their doorstep every morning at 5Am with my work boots on, eventually someone didn?t show up for work and the boss hired me.
After working pipeline for a year and half I decided it was time to go back to school so I asked for a lay-off and took the next 6 months going to college for my Power Engineering. When I completed the Power Engineering I ended up working in a restaurant for 6 months looking for work as the oil slump had hit Saskatchewan and Alberta and the lay-offs were massive. I went back to Prince George for a visit and I ended up landing a job as a maintenance Worker at a fancy local Hotel. While working as the maintenance employee I was assisting a local Electrical contractor with renovations in the hotel. I applied for an apprenticeship and was accepted. In my spare time I was part of the Fort George Highway Rescue society. After completing my second year of Electrical it lead me to a higher paying job at Quintette Coal mine in Tumbler Ridge B.C. where I completed my 4 year apprenticeship and worked as a maintenance Electrician for 12 years until its closure.
In 1992 I married Joanne Ellis and we now have 3 wonderful kids, Greg, Janiene and Todd. Prior to the mine closure I succeeded in obtaining a position as the Regional Maintenance Supervisor for the Dawson Creek Hospital and surrounding Health Facilities under the wing of the South Peace Health Council in Dawson Creek, B.C. which is now the northern Health Authority. My wife, kids and I live on a beautiful acreage just South of Dawson Creek near a small town called Pouce Coupe.
We grow fruit trees and a large garden. I like reading books and magazines about money, health and government fraud. In the summer I like to take my family to Northern Vancouver Island where my wife is from, where we can enjoy excellent ocean fishing.
After so much reading and being convinced that our present Government is throwing away hundreds of years of hard work in building this nation, I finally have said enough is enough, I cant stand by and watch everyone become a slave to Multinational Corporations and private banking, luckily I have discovered the Canadian Action party as a vehicle with honest values to change this. There is finally someone to vote for in Canada again.
