London, ON. After
being in Canada for two weeks Piotr bought a US Franchise retail

year, running his business in London, was for Piotr very
challenging. He says

leadership skills he prepared different types of activities for
his broad based friends in the community.
Piotr spends a lot of time with his children; he thinks
that the time, which parents spend with their own children, is
proportional to the time that children will spend with them after
they have left the nest. Piotr

Masters Club, where he works to improve his leadership and
speaking skills. Weekend
evenings he loves spending in the Ottawa downtown atmosphere,

organizations; he went through numerous public debates and media

The Green Party’s platform is similar to Piotr’s vision
for the World. Piotr
believes that Personal
Rapid Transit (PRT), which was part of his environmental
friendly platform in the municipal election 2006, is a very
important issue for all Canadians and the entire World.
It can be a solution not only for energy saving and a clean

passion is work, his gift is unlimited number of extraordinary
ideas, and the World is for him a challenging experience without
any secrets. High
quality in workmanship is his standard.
Piotr never has broken his word and he wants to continue
this way. He prefers
compromises and open discussion instead of anger and war.
He, as a chess player, can see the future with all steps

fact that he is a 42.195 kilometres marathon medalist; he has ran
and competed 3 times in international marathons http://www.biegowyserwis.pl/ksiegamarnazw.html.

that since 1973 he did not give up his Martial Arts hobby even
though he endured a few surgeries and has some limitations.

shape, Piotr has been actively continuing his passion and has
walked through many different styles of Martial Arts. For the last 9 years Piotr has been training in Taekwondo in
