Biography

(The following text was provided by the candidate or campaign.)

I was born Peter Rodney Meic in Sydney, Australia in 1964. My family immigrated to Canada in 1967, and I have lived in Calgary ever since. I married in 1995 and I have five children aged 10 to 18. My wife and I separated in 2011.

In 1982 I graduated from Lord Beaverbrook High School. I graduated from SAIT’s Automotive Service Technology program in 1987, and completed my apprenticeship in 1989. I am employed as an auto mechanic in Foothills Industrial Park.

I grew up with a fondness for natural, open spaces and I continue to enjoy my favourite places in the foothills of our magnificent Rocky Mountains.

For most of my adult life I have lived in NE Calgary, currently in Pineridge. I prefer the variety of culture and tradition that make this corner of Calgary the heart of the multiculturalism that, when embraced and nurtured, make this city, indeed the entire country, a place that promotes not only tolerance, but a sense of community that transcends our differences.

I joined the Green Party of Alberta in 2013 as the result of an understanding of the challenges Alberta faces in both the immediate and long term future, and the desire to not leave these challenges to my children. They deserve representative government that reflects the democratic wishes of all the people, all the time. For that to happen, someone needs to stand up. Albertans have a long history of standing up for each other, and I am an Albertan.
