The Okanagan sun was shining brightly when Dr. John Weisbeck joined us under the CTQ pergola. John shared with the group a magnitude of experiences that he has had over the years. John’s initial passion was to practice in the field of dentistry. With the successful completion of his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree, John opened a dental practice in Kelowna, of which he operated for 25 years.
In 1988 he decided to try his hand at politics and was elected as a Kelowna City Councilor for two terms ending in 1994. At that time John decided to further his political career by running for provincial politics. In 1996 he was successful and was elected the Liberal MLA for Kelowna-Lake Country. During his time a provincial Politian, John served as a official opposition critic for advanced education and technology as well as the Assistant Deputy Speaker at the Parliament buildings in Victoria.
Other passions of John’s include farming, golfing, tennis and volunteering hours for the betterment of the community that he grew up in.
Our feature wine was from See Ya Later Ranch, with brews from Okanagan Springs to compliment the fruit kabobs and selected cheese and vegetable platters, enjoyed on the patio under the warm spring sunshine.
