President and CEO, Director,  Pretivm

Almost every day, I run or walk on the Trans Canada Trail – to my office in downtown Vancouver, or to Granville Island to get groceries. I also have a home in Fredericton, New Brunswick – near where I grew up – that is located on the Salamanca Trail, connecting to the TCT and the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge (Old Railway Bridge) that crosses the St. John River, where one can get outdoors year-round. As an exploration geologist, I have spent the past 38 years living and working in nearly every province and territory of this great country – often in remote areas like Baker Lake (Nunavut), Natashquan on the lower St. Lawrence River (Quebec), and Daniel’s Harbour, near Gros Morne National Park (Newfoundland and Labrador). This country has been very good to me; supporting the TCT is a way for me to give back and help celebrate our country’s 150th birthday. It’s also a great way to promote green activities and healthy living. That’s good for all of us.
