Researcher.

A retired enterprise computer architect, he now works as an assistant to the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba. A direct descendant of Pierre LaPorte, a Montreal voyageur sent to pick up LaVerendrye’s furs after his first winter in the West at Fort la Reine, he is keenly interested in his French and Irish roots.

His articles for the Manitoba Historical Society:
