Doug became a
quadriplegic in 1979 as a result of a spinal cord tumor. He and Dagmar
relocated from Montreal to Fredericton in July 1984 to work with the
Canadian Paraplegic Association. In 1986, Doug was appointed Manager
of the New Brunswick Civil Service Equal Employment Opportunity
Program until his retirement in March
2009.
Doug was very

Doug worked very
hard to accomplish his dream of having an accessible taxi service in
Fredericton, which became a reality in 2009 – the B.A.T. Mobile
[Brunswick Accessible Taxi]. Prior to his
disability, Doug played hockey and baseball and coached minor league
sports. He had a very
positive influence on many kids growing up in Park Extension and
Fredericton. Doug was an
avid fan of the Montreal Canadiens and Montreal Expos.
In retirement, he enjoyed attending the YMCA where he had
