I was born in Summerland BC and during my childhood we lived in Penticton and in the Castlegar area.
I moved to Prince Rupert at age of 18 where I worked at the Bank of Montreal for 3 years then moved to Rivtow (freight and barge operation).
I got married now going on 33 years and had my 3 children where I became a stay at home Mom for 15 years. I’m now the proud grandmother of five beautiful grandchildren that keep me busy and very active. I moved to Port Edward in 1991 and I love living here.
After my children were all grown up I returned to work as a Childcare worker with School District #52 for a while. I then worked for Williams Trucking followed by Clark Freightways as the Office Manager and then Freight Manager. I am now semi-retired.
I have been part of Port Edward Council for 13 years where I continue to serve as a Councillor.
I am the alternate for the North Coast Regional District and attend meeting and conferences as a representative of our community.
I currently volunteer on the Prince Rupert Hospice Society and in the past I was involved with the Port Edward Lions Club as well as Success by 6, Prince Rupert Archives, Canadian Cancer Society, Port Edward School PAC and others.
I love our community and hope to continue being a part of growing our area but at the same time live in a natural environment. My goals for Port Edward would be for us to stay self-sufficient and peaceful place to live.
Port Edward feels like home to me “Peaceful and Friendly” I'm hoping we can continue working together for the better of our community.Contact Christine MacKenzie
