How long have you lived in Kelowna?
I moved here in 1966.

What is your favourite thing about this community?

If you could change one thing about Kelowna, what would it be?
Improve the traffic issues, Westside bypass and have another road on the east side.

Who is your hero?
John Lennon. Imagine, all the people living life in peace.

What are three things on your bucket list?
Execute a major public art piece, snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, and take my wife to New Brunswick.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Our tenth grandchild is on the way this June. Family is everything.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Super Diplomat – to convince every superpower to use their military budgets to combat global warming, and house and feed the poor.

RauDz.
