Keith MacIntyre has lived in Penticton for the last 10 years. He is the owner of Big Bear Software and President of the Okanagan School of the Arts. Over the last 2 decades he has seen firsthand the inefficiencies in government procurement in the defense, medical and throughout government ministries. He has been disillusioned with partisan politics for a long time and believes that the current state of democracy, polarized politics and perpetuating bureaucracy is damaging to Canadians. Finding the BC Libertarian has given him hope that we can make a real difference in reducing the size of government and taking back our individual freedoms and live as freely as we all deserve.
