Peter Pare

Chairperson and Driver

Peter Pare is an Emeritus Professor of Respiratory Medicine at UBC. He and Lisa Baile have had property on Pender since 1980 and built their log house on Armadale Road. Peter's interest in the Community Bus project is based on concern for the green house gas emissions generated by Pender residents and the lack of public transportation for seniors and youth on the island. It is his hope that the pilot project will show that there is broad community support for a Community Bus on the Pender Islands.
