I am retired and moved to Cornwall in 2019 with my common-law wife, Jane. I was born in Montreal and grew up in a small community on the South Shore of Montreal. I was very active in all available sports, coached football for many years in Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa, Toronto, and the United Kingdom(American Football). After 29 years away from football, I am currently coaching our local team, Cornwall Wildcats. Jane and I were foster parents for several years in Simcoe County, and I was active as a vice president for the Foster Parents Assoc and as a Trustee for the CAS of Simcoe County. During my almost 20 years as a peace officer, I was the union acting-president, vice-president(twice) and union steward. I was also a member of the Collective Bargaining Team in 2004. I am a proud Canadian and a community leader.
