I earned journey man carpentry status at Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Arts and Sciences in 1967. I worked in Victoria in 1968 as a carpenter, then moved to Vernon in 1969. I lived in south Spallumcheen in the North Okanagan since 1971. After raising a family I went out into the world and caused lots of trouble of the good kind. I left carpentry and some political involvement behind in 2005 to operate PRSI Ltd. The game of life saw me become deeply involved in planet health affairs. I am a founder starting Armstrong Spallumcheen Environmental Trust in 2002, and today, as chair, manage a legacy bursary fund for post secondary environmental related studies. 2019 Public pressures will see PRSI enjoy a successful year financially.
