Originally from Scotland, Peter came to Edmonton in 1973 to start his practice as a family doctor and raise a family. Though he made Edmonton his home, his Scottish work ethic never wavered: work hard, contribute to society and set an example for your children. For Peter, family has always come first.
Physical activity is ingrained in his daily life as a retired physician and he spends many a cold winter morning exercising in the gym at the City of Edmonton Kinsmen Sports Centre or swimming. He is also an advocate and supporter of the University’s Faculty of Medicine and cancer clinic.
He first brought his Volkswagen Golf and Dodge minivan into Sandy Lane in 2013.
“At Sandy Lane, it’s a mutual relationship. They know my name and they seem to get things done effortlessly. Once, I was driving around with something illegal—a reverse light that had burned out—and I went into Sandy Lane and they dealt with it right away. They were busy and fully booked with other customers, but they took care of it. The experience there is a contrast to the rest of the industry. ”
“Packrat Louie’s is always a favourite. ”
“Whatever I am reading next. I get excited about military history, biographies and autobiographies. ”
“I’ve loved Edmonton since the day I arrived. The sports, the people, where I live on the River Valley. We are lucky to live in a city with the largest park space of any city in North America. .”
Thank you, Peter, for all your years of loyalty to Sandy Lane!
