Outside Magazine had their list of essentials that should be in everyone’s day bag.  You know the bag you have if you are off for a day trip and you don’t know where or the day will end. Here is mine. 15 litre backpack.  You know it’s the same size of bag…

Happy Birthday Mark! He turned 15 today.  Despite his best efforts, he has made it 15 times around the sun without being tossed from the planet. We celebrated in part on the weekend.  On Friday Wendy and I took him shopping and got him to pick out some…

If you remember, last winter I got really sick with a chest infection and flu.  I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t do anything.  Even writing my weekly column or appearing on The Saskatoon Afternoon Show was exhausting.    Shortly before this,…

Working hard to make Saskatoon a better city to live in.
Introduction
Since 1995, I have been trying to help people.  Whether that is helping the answer some of the deeper questions in life or just trying to make sure the homeless have a safe place to sleep that night, it's what I do with a lot of passion.

I have managed homeless shelters, launched programs, and now am working at making Saskatoon a better place to live by building quality affordable housing.  How much fun is that?

I have an obscure weblog, I write a little bit, some of that appears every Monday in The StarPhoenix and you can listen to me on 650 CKOM's Afternoon Show roundtable.
Bragging rights
I once hung up on former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney because I thought it was a crank call.
