Directors seeking re-election:

Kelsey Evans 

Over the course of her 13-year career, Kelsey has enjoyed the opportunity to work in many dynamic environments in the business, non-profit, and retail management. She currently serves as the Regional Manager of Volunteer Engagement for the Canadian Cancer Society, overseeing a portfolio that spans three provinces and a volunteer base of over 6,000 individuals. Prior to working with the CCS, she was a Program Manager at Food Matters Manitoba, where she first joined Peg City Car Co-op as an organizational member. For four years, Kelsey also worked with local event and association management company Ethero Events, providing custom event and association management services for a variety of Winnipeg-based organizations. Kelsey is a University of Winnipeg graduate and lives in Wolseley with her partner and dog Olive. Kelsey enjoys walking and biking around the neighbourhood when the Winnipeg weather permits. She is passionate about making Winnipeg a great place to live and has been an individual member of the Co-op since 2016. Kelsey is excited to seek re-election this year and continue to support the forward momentum of the Co-op.

Mark Bauche 

Mark Bauche has been a Peg City Car Co-op member since 2013 and a board member since 2018. Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Mark moved to Winnipeg in 1999 to study Environmental Design at the University of Manitoba. Apart from a two-year working holiday in the UK, he has lived in Winnipeg for all of two decades. As a landscape architect at HTFC Planning & Design, he has worked to create sustainable urban spaces throughout Winnipeg and across the region. Mark gave up car ownership back in 2003 and was thrilled when carsharing arrived in Winnipeg. He is keen to continue giving back to this growing carshare community by serving his second term on the Peg City Car Co-op Board of Directors.

Tamir Bourlas 

Tamir works for Assiniboine credit union and holds a degree in economics from the University of Winnipeg. He is passionate about carsharing and strongly believes we need to improve our mobility options in Winnipeg. He is currently serving as treasurer of Peg Car Co-op. 

Nominees seeking election: 

Kaye Grant

I believe that my personal and professional experiences align very well with what is currently being sought by the Board. I have extensive business experience as a consultant for small business, co-ops and social enterprises. I have worked in the co-op sector since 2013.

I am currently serving on the boards of the Manitoba Cooperative Association and CCEDNet. Previously I served on the Bike Winnipeg board for almost seven years. I continue to volunteer with Bike Winnipeg. I also served on the steering committee for Bike Week Winnipeg for four years. I have bookkeeping experience and currently oversee the financial management at the Canadian Worker Co-operative Federation. I have experience in the non-profit sector developing budgets, reviewing financial statements and managing cash flow.

My work in the co-op sector has led me to believe in the co-op business structure. I support active transportation and use my bike to commute; but sometimes we all need use of a vehicle. I love that Peg City allows me to be car free.

Ian Walker

I believe that I would be a good fit for the Peg-City Car Co-Op because I am passionate about sustainability and helping make a transportation mode shift happen in Winnipeg. 

I am a former gear head. In my 20’s I owned four motorcycles, a pickup truck, a jeep, a van, and two cars. My bike sat in the garage most of the time, and I did a lot of driving. In my early 30’s when my first son was born, I dusted off my bike and started commuting on two wheels so my wife would have the car at home with our newborn. Cycling has allowed us to be a one-car family ever since. My wife is a regular transit user, and I cycle year-round (often on my Clockwork Orange Harry vs. Larry Bullitt). We’ve enjoyed using the Peg City vehicles and one day would like to sell our car and car share for all of our driving needs. 

As my concern for environmental destruction has grown, so has my passion for getting others out of their cars. My wife and I own one vehicle (an electric car that we bought second hand two years ago). We use the PCCC vehicles when we head out of town or need to carry more than our small car can carry. I’ve found the Peg City van’s useful for taking my kid’s friends out to activities that we can’t walk, cycle or bus to and the pickup truck has been great for camping! I spent a lot of time talking to folks about it when we were camping at Rushing River last summer. 

I have been an educator for 15 years. I currently teach grade 3 and 4, and I was formerly an early childhood literacy specialist working with our school’s grade 1 population. I am heavily involved in our school community as a coach and as the head mechanic of the Hampstead Wrench. 

I am keen to promote carsharing, transit, cycling, and walking in Winnipeg. I have many years of experience lobbying for safer and more inclusive cycling infrastructure as secretary, co-chair, a member at large and advocacy chair of Bike Winnipeg. I have developed many important relationships with decision-makers at the city, and with residents associations. I helped found the Norwood Flats Residents association in 2019. I was elected to the executive of the River East Transcona Teacher’s Association for four years. I have continued to keep in touch with my union friends through my cycling advocacy and community work. Prior to volunteering in the union movement and doing cycling advocacy, I was involved with the provincial and federal NDP. I worked on a variety of election campaigns, including managing a campaign in St. Boniface as the Official Agent.

I am a keen gardener. Over the past decade, I’ve replaced most of our front and back lawns with perennial and vegetable gardens. I love to play disc golf at Happyland with my buddy Dan. My wife, kids and I love spending the week at Birds Hill Park for the Winnipeg Folk Festival each July a tradition started by my late father. I love to be outdoors and can often be found camping, or at the cottage we rent on 2nd ave at Victoria Beach, Manitoba. I’m also a handyman and often have projects on the go in our 110 year old home. One of my recent projects was the conversion of our home’s heating and cooling system from an old gas furnace to a modern 5-ton ground-source heat pump.
