Retired to Bowen Island British Columbia in Canada after 36 years as a senior manager in the criminal justice field in Canada. My wife Jane, also retired from senior government service, is teaching full time Criminology and Conflict Resolution courses at a local university. We both have an active interest in social justice issues, particularly First Nations (Aboriginal peoples) and we play an active role in raising our Godson who is First Nations . We have several grown children of our own - some working ,some completing university. We love music, hiking, reading and photography and enjoy keeping in touch with extended family through travel when we can. Homelike and Bed and Breakfast type accommodations are our favourite way to travel. We speak English but through our careers have also become very conversant in French.
