Dustin Price is running for the Green Party in the provincial election coming up May 14.

Price has lived in and around 100 Mile House for most of his life.

He was born in Victoria but his mother moved the family to Lac La Hache in 1991 when he was six years old.

Dustin attended Lac La Hache Elementary School for his entire elementary education, and attended high school in 100 Mile House from grades 8 to 10.

Dustin spent grades 11 and 12 in Victoria while going to Spectrum Community School and also playing Junior B hockey.

After high school Dustin attended the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology located in Merritt where he achieved his diploma in natural resource management.  Upon completion, he returned to 100 Mile House and put his education to the test by working in silviculture as a summer student for West Fraser Mills.

He progressed to free to grow tree surveys with an independent forester.

After a successful time there Price received a job offer to work for the Ministry of Forests to fight forest fires.

He has been with the Forest Service ever since while working in a number of positions. He currently works with BCTS Timbers Sales.

Price began coaching hockey seven years ago and focused on training prospective junior hockey players in the spring and summer. He has great pride in seeing many of his former players achieve great heights that they never thought possible in both their everyday lives and hockey careers.

Recently, Price has been recognized for his volunteer efforts with a nomination to the Kraft Hockey Goes On promotion.

Price was one of the top 100 individuals in Canada selected for a chance to win $100,000 for his minor hockey association.

Last summer Price began volunteering at the local Youth Zone.

The Youth Zone is an establishment in 100 Mile House where the doors are open for the kids of the community to spend their time and get a hot meal.

Price is a fairly quiet guy, however, he has made some good connections with some of the youth who are extremely meaningful to him.

His current schedule is very busy but he does plan on spending more of his free time with this community program in the future.

Through his local interactions and commitments it is plain to see that Price cares about the community in which he lives.  Price believes the Green Party of British Columbia holds his values as their own.

He truly looks forward to working with the party in bringing a better choice of leadership to the people of his region and community, and to the people of British Columbia.
