John Husk has a special story about how he first decided to get involved in municipal politics 12 years ago at only 27 years of age. He hasn't looked back since. This fall, John will be retiring as a city councilor in Drummondville as a new chapter opens in his life, but he will continue to be a champion for the environment. He talks about growing up in Drummondville, what happened when his daughter was born, how he went from being a mechanic to currently working on a Master's degree in urban planning and sustainable land use, and why municipal politics is the most accessible level of political involvement. He takes a look back at his time on the municipal council, tells us about how Drummondville has shifted from thinking in terms of "economic development" to "sustainable development," and explains how our democracy can only work when citizens get involved.
