A retired French Immersion teacher with a new occupation of cycling advocate, Fiona came to purposeful cycling at the age of 60, when she bought an electric-assist bike to help her mount the hills on the North Shore of the Burrard Inlet. Along with a booming North Shore cycling community, she encourages retired folks to ride an ebike and wishes to represent that important demographic at all levels of government. Fiona volunteers at the West End Coal Harbour Community Policing Centre, in Vancouver, and in emergency support services (ESS) with North Shore Emergency Management, teaching Emergency Preparedness to all ages. She is also chair of the Grand Boulevard Residents Association. But her passions — when she’s at home — are growing organic fruits and vegetables in her backyard, fermenting and sprouting foods in her kitchen and living green.
