working with community
Comox has been my home for 22 years. I’ve raised my family here and now I have the joy of watching my grandchildren grow up here. I know our community and I’ve seen and been a part of the changes. I respect the beauty that surrounds us, and welcome growth cautiously, knowing it can enhance our lives, while being mindful of who we are as a community.

Thomas Gradin, who led the Vancouver Canucks to the team’s first trip to the Stanley Cup final in 1982, is among the members of the Canucks Alumni who will play in the upcoming Mayors Cup in the Comox Valley.
