Oliwa: ‘Showing leadership in local government role and as a citizen’

I came to Ucluelet for a day in 1985 and I have been working at the Ucluelet Co-op for 29 years. I have been married for 23 years to my wife Catherine and we have three amazing children.

I have owned businesses for 16 years here in Ucluelet. My passion for the community of Ucluelet is very strong.

My interests vary from exploring all the West Coasts hidden places and activities to meeting new people with a friendly smile and a cheerfull, “Hello.”

I believe in volunteering.

I have been the president of the Pacific Rim Fish and Game Club, an original member of the WCISAR, WC Rangers and our school PACs.

I believe we should live within our means and practice sustainable living.

I finish what I start and believe we should do what we say we are going to do.

I am very fortunate to have been elected to represent Ucluelet, twice.

My two terms on council have been challenging but extremely rewarding.

I take great pride in telling every person I meet that I am from Ucluelet BC.

I promise to continue to show leadership in both my local government role and my role as a Ucluelet citizen. I believe in leading by example.
