Wayne was born in Montreal and adored spending his childhood summers in Newfoundland with his family. He was active in his childhood playing hockey, wrestling, delivering newspapers, working odd jobs and proudly washing his dad’s car. As a young man he worked for CN Railway in Montreal and in the early 80’s moved out to Saskatchewan and pursued a career in insurance (London Life) and real estate (Remax).
