My parents moved to what was then known as East Burnaby at the end of 1951, before I was born. We moved to Coquitlam for the 1961-62 school year then moved back to the same house in East Burnaby, before finally having a house built in South Burnaby in 1968.

Once I graduated from UBC in 1974, I moved to Yellowknife and they moved to Belleville, Ontario.
