CANDIDATE BIO: Paul Lagace

Submitted bio for Paul Lagace.

(Running for Kitimat Councillor)

Hello, my name is Paul Lagace. My wife, Jennifer along with our daughter, Viola now age four, call Kitimat our home. We made the decision to leave Ontario and move to this beautiful part of the province two and a half years ago because we love the north and the ocean. For more than fifty years my father, Joe, worked as a transmission man/mechanic. Although I have pursued the academic route, recently finishing six years at Seminary in Toronto, the core value of hard work and loyalty is a spin off from my dad.

My work with the Kitimat Housing Resource Project and providing support for parents who have youth with special needs is definitely my calling. I firmly believe that all members of the community, from an advocate’s perspective, deserve to be heard. My passion for languages, theatre, poetry, spicy Caribbean and Indian food falls into play when I’m not hard at work.

Regarding my experience, I served two years as Student President at Seminary, ran previously for Council, owned and operated my own Theatre/Publishing Company, oversaw and ran a Youth Group in Downtown Toronto, and have volunteered on the Extreme Weather Shelter.
