An all-season veteran courier, Kowalsky navigated Montreal’s road network for a decade. Defying frostbite and dehydration he endured every meteorological cocktail imaginable from ice storm to heat wave. He has delivered everything from winning lottery tickets for a corner store to warm lunches from restaurants. Kowalsky worked part-time as a messenger while completing a college diploma in paralegal studies and a graduate diploma in labour law and social protection. His graduate corpus focuses on working conditions and safety of commercial cyclists. He holds a bachelor’s in political science from the University of Saskatchewan where he served as a lobbyist for the undergraduate students’ union. Residing in Canada’s Copenhagen, Montreal’s Plateau neighbourhood, Kowalsky adores adventures on his steelhorse.
