I was born and raised in Canora and spent most of my life as a resident here. My home is shared with my spouse Iona and son Durban, who recently graduated from Grade 12, both of them are employed by Canora businesses.
I have recently retired from a career of almost 30 years employed by the Town of Canora, with 12 of those years as foreman. In the past I was a member of the Canora Fire Department for 10 years, some of which as Captain and truck/equipment caretaker. Through time I have acquired a Journeyman Automotive Mechanic Certificate, Level 1 Water & Wastewater Certificate, Fireman/ Boiler Certificate and other certification in different areas related to my employment.
Iona and myself have owned Dragon Ventures LTD since 2005, a construction company that mostly repairs grain bins and other services. Before my employment with the Town of Canora I was employed with Wyonzek Brothers Construction of Canora for over 10 years.
Now retired, I am always puttering with something: cars, houses, equipment, yards etc. Restoring, renovating, reconditioning almost anything. In the summer months we enjoy camping, golfing and attending car shows.
I feel Canora is a quiet, safe and friendly town and hope to spend the future as a resident. As a council member I hope to apply my knowledge and experience while representing all citizens to shape the future of our town.
