My name is Matt Thompson, I was born in Regina but have lived in Canora most of my life. After graduation I was on the road for many years working on the rigs as a motor hand. I decided I wanted to make roots in Canora and applied for a position with Thompson and Johnsson. I received my Powerline Journeyman ticket and am now currently employed with Forbes Bros LTD and have been in the lineman trade for 12 plus years. I am married and have two young boys. My family and I enjoy the outdoors and spending time with family and friends. I am looking forward to working with council and mayor Mike Kwas in the years to come. I am hoping to gain trust and make new relationships with the members of our community. I am always willing to listen to new ideas, answer questions or address any concerns that people may have.
