Paul is also the Manager of Vessels and Equipment Standards, Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary-Pacific Region (CCGA-P)
This is a volunteer position working with their 40 volunteer stations and over 1000 volunteers on the west coast ensuring all the vessels and personal equipment used meet a high level of standards.

I have attached a map for those coming from Victoria its best to take the Parkway (by-pass) heading north and then take the first exit which is Fifth St and that will take you down to Wakesiah and turn left and go to Fourth and make another left and only a short drive up Fourth there is a Pay parking lot for building 180.
