(Running for Kitimat Councillor)
Born and raised in Calgary, Larry Walker is a mature adult who comes full of life experiences. I love the outdoors and especially fishing.
I consider myself an avid outdoorsman but some people may disagree with my skill level. In the past I enjoyed hunting upland birds but have now settled into fishing.
I have worked in marketing and sales for a major US Railroad. Spent 8 years as Manager of Transportation and Distribution for a major integrated forest products company in Alberta (yes they do have trees there). I even spent a few years working in a federal prison — great experience.
I care about my community and in that vein was elected as an alderman in the City of Spruce Grove, Alta. I won a seat in four consecutive municipal elections.
My love of this region began back in the late 70s when my family and I would travel by car to the Queen Charlotte Islands every fall to fish for salmon (did this for nine years in a row). Loved those flights on Trans Provincial Airlines into Masset and the walk down the beach to pick up the car from the barge.
Kitimat is now my home and I hope to spend the rest of my active life here.
