I have been working in my trade as a Plumber Gasfitter for close to 30 years. In that time I worked for my Grandfather, A Master Plumber from England, a large mechanical firm from Richmond. I then worked for a two other companies in the Okanagan before setting out on my own in 1996 (DTP Plumbing & Heating). I sold that company in the fall of 2007, much to the dismay of my many customers.
I have also worked for our own School district 23 in the Okanagan for two and a half years until their budget was cut by our beloved Government, and about 39 support staff were laid off. Most of which were hard working, dedicated Men & Women. Being that I only had about one months notice, I had to muster the courage to start up another company once again. I was pleasantly surprised to be welcomed back by the community with open arms. Even though the Westside has grown since I last left it to pursue other opportunities. It still remains close to my heart. I think the Westside is a great place to live and bring up a family.
