Presidents - Past and Present

In 1991, known today as, the Canadian Utility Fleet Council (CUFC) original met in Calgary, the following four people were present: John Harvey (Manitoba Power), John Kwan (City of Calgary) Ghislain Courcy (Hydro Quebec) and Bob Borer (Ontario Hydro). The meeting was to discuss common fleet manufacture and maintenance issues. The outcome of the meeting was the formation of the CUFC; the next meeting in 1992 was in Vancouver in conjunction with the Canadian Electrical Committee. The annual meeting was known as the “Fleet Forums” until 2006 when then President Ken Thomas formalized the group and called it CUFC. Today the annual meeting is still known as the “Canadian Utility Fleet Forum”.
