I was born in 1949 and grew up in the town of St. Marys Ontario. Throughout my life I have been a social worker, politician, and teacher. More importantly, I have spent a lot of time traveling and actually living in different countries. Most recently, my wife Marilyn and I spent three years in Africa where we set up and ran a Performing Arts Centre to help preserve and promote Zambian culture. Having recently returned to Canada, we are now planning to settle in Saskatchewan for a while. Marilyn is returning ‘home’ so to speak and I’m opening my mind and heart to the Prairie lifestyle.
