ABOUT ME I am a union and community activist with varied interests. These include: Politics, Social Justice, Canadian literature, the Opera, Theater, photography, golf (when it is not too serious), and walking the sea wall (when it is not raining too hard). I have also re-discovered my passion for Table Tennis, as both a sport and Leisure activity. In the fall of 2007 I suddenly lost my partner and the Love of my Life – Barb Brown. Included in her legacy to me are many fond memories, a wonderful family, and some very special friendships, and some of the more refined interests noted above. As an avid reader and CBC fan – I have yet to pick the winner on CBC’s “Canada Reads”. But I have found winners in the books nominated. One of my favorites is “Rock Bound” by Frank Parker Day – I recommend clearing your schedule before starting to read it. Since one of my two Bengal cats is named Rebus, some of you will rightly assume I am an Ian Rankin fan. My other cat is named Theo (short for Theophilus, which was the name of a character on the series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century). So in spite of my passion for Can Lit, I also enjoy good movies, mysteries, historical fiction, science fiction, and even non-fiction. In the non-fiction category; the Golden Spruce is one of my favorites, and is so well written that it was like reading a novel. Unfortunately my favourite bookseller Duthie Books closed at the end of February 2010. I am currently in the process of winding up AMM First Services Ltd,the consulting company I set up with my kids after retiring from CUPE in 2009.While The work I have been doing for Unions, NGO’s and non-profits has been rewarding, I am looking forward to devoting more time to my other interest.
