What is the last book you read (Fiction and Non-Fiction)?

�Back to the Klondike. My family and I read it as we headed up north this summer on a road trip. It�s by Yvonne Harris, and it�s all about northern potential and northern legacies. It�s actually historical fiction. The last non-fiction was Shake Hands with the Devil by Romeo Dallaire, which I read before going to Rwanda on a humanitarian trip last year.�

What music are you listening to?

�I like upbeat music, all the classic rock stuff that gives you energy and keeps you going. I listen to a lot of CBC French and English, but also Classic Rock 101.1.�

What are your favourite recreational pursuits?

�I just qualified for my black belt in tae kwon do, which my whole family takes, and my family just loves skiing. I�m also an avid runner, biker and swimmer.�

Do you have any hobbies?

�I play guitar � or rather I should say that I�m learning guitar, so I don�t raise expectations.�

One of the achievements he is most proud of is the acquisition of the Squamish Oceanfront lands from the provincial government, and the development of the Squamish Adventure Centre with grants from federal and provincial governments.

In the community, Sutherland has been president of two Parents Advisory Councils, as well as a volunteer for sports.

With his wife Janet, Sutherland owns a company that distributes educational textbooks across Canada.

On the road this week, Sutherland responded to Pique�s candidate questionnaire by e-mail.
