Raised in White Rock BC, Kevin Babcock grew up with a strong appreciation of our oceans and nearby mountains, nurturing his affinity for the Canadian outdoor experience. Throughout his youth, road trips brought him all across Canada and most of the United States, with further travels including Australia and eventually to Poland where he met his wife in 2009.
Kevin has spent the last 20 years in the labour force in the railway and aerospace industries in the Lower Mainland and currently in the forestry industry at the Canoe plywood plant.
Kevin attended Simon Fraser University for four years of general studies before relocating to Salmon Arm. As a lifelong seeker of truth, he picked up a few more courses at Okanagan College and is currently studying at Thompson Rivers University finishing up his Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, specializing in ethics. With a love for learning, Kevin will continue fulfilling his lifelong passion for seeking knowledge and finding new ways to apply it to today’s world.
Korry grew up in rural Northwestern Ontario and has welded at Copper and Uranium mines, high lead logged on the North Pacific Coast, built communications towers throughout the west, and erected structural iron.
While iron working at a Tar Sands refinery, he saw firsthand the magnitude of devastation and the lack of responsible behaviour by the industry.
Because of his Tar Sands experience and an understanding of just how fragile our environment and climate are, he became politically involved during the 2008 Federal Election and has been active in six other electoral campaigns since.
He currently works in the solar industry in the Okanagan.
