Conservative candidate Glen Byle, in his own words

Fourteen years ago I graduated from BCIT and was hired full time at the hospital in Trail repairing medical equipment.

I moved here on my motorcycle and I immediately fell in love with life in the Kootenays. I met my wife here and we have three young kids age 4, 6, and 8. I enjoy biking, weight lifting, and spending time with my family. We especially love camping together in the summer.

Since moving here I've learned about hunting, how to be a responsible gun owner, and this year I learned how to fish. Four years ago we made the decision to sell my truck and buy an e-bike, making us a one car family. Now I do most of my trips around town by bike,

I am a member of the West Kootenay Cycling Coalition, and I just ran the GoByBike week event for the Trail area. I became interested in politics during my time as the shop steward and chief steward of my local union chapter.

I am passionate about improving the quality of life of the people in the Kootenays by empowering people to make positive choices.
