I have deep roots in this community

I’ve lived in North Vancouver since 1970.  I left after high school to go to university but returned soon after to raise my own family and have lived here ever since.

My relatives were involved in the early settlement of North Vancouver which began in the late 1800s. They named many of the streets in the City after places around Liverpool in the UK where they were from.  My grandfather, Oliver Heywood, immigrated from England in the 1920s to be farmer in Abbotsford which is where my father lived until he left to join the RCMP when he turned 18.
