John and his family moved to the Slocan Valley in 2017. He was born and raised in Nova Scotia and appreciates the strong similarities of lifestyle and culture here in the valley. He married a BC girl in 1979 and now resides here with her in Crescent Valley. John has worked for charities and foundations for more than 30 years. He sees the wisdom of building the Slocan Valley Legacy Fund for now and future generations. For the last 7 years he has been raising funds for youth mental health. John has a particular passion for building positive relationships with Indigenous brothers and sisters. He believes it is high time to recognize their intrinsic value and impact and is engaged in reconcili-Action. You may meet John at the Valley View golf course as he enjoys a fun casual game of golf.
John looks forward to bringing his passion and abilities to SVLF.
