BILL MANNERS

Nanaimo BC Canada

About Me

am in my early sixties and although born and raised in Vancouver, I have lived in Nanaimo since age 14 in early 1970.   I have briefly left Nanaimo to pursue different occupations a few times, but always returned to the City of Nanaimo, which is my adopted hometown.

I have been involved in the passenger transportation industry starting in 1972 with AirWest Airlines then worked with AC Taxi, Swiftsure Taxi, Nanaimo Airporter Service, Excalibur Limousines, Coast Limousine and LimoRide as well as other bus and taxi companies throughout the Vancouver area, Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island.

I have also operated for a short time, a newspaper for seniors and those with disabilities.  I was also in the photography business and serviced office equipment plus worked as truss (roof) designer.  I currently am an interviewer with Statistics Canada and a permanent part time Outfitter at Cabela's Nanaimo.

I have spent a lot of time working with non-profit organizations and volunteered my time with various non profit organizations in particular those devoted to those with disabilities and am amazed at those that see themselves as not disabled but see the people that look at them differently as the ones that are disabled.  I offered up to be an interviewer for the Seniors Advocate of British Columbia in a survey related to Care in Residential Homes throughtout British Columbia.  I was involved in the establishment of the Nanaimo and District Independant Living Resource Centre back in 1988-89.

Lately, I have been a volunteer of the City of Nanaimo's Community Engagement Task Force as well as the Nanaimo Amateur Radio Association and Coast Emergency Communications Association (ham radio clubs).

I was actively involved in Toastmasters (public speaking) in the early 80's and am a past president of Malaspina Toastmasters Club #738 (Nanaimo) at which I attained my ATM (Able Toastmaster) status
