Norman Bruce Ayers
Norman Bruce Ayers was born in 1941 to a hunting family. He was a gifted child who started reading at three years old. As a teen he worked summers as a farm labourer, cowboy, and commercial fisherman. He joined the RCMP in 1959, completed a BCom at Carleton in 1978, and retired in 1995 as Superintendent of Federal Policing in Manitoba.
Norman acts in the local community theatre, loves live opera, and often recites poetry to groups. He is fascinated by genealogy, and has lectured on computer crime, statistics, ethics, and PERT/CPM. He studied French and Japanese, and every year he bikes over 4000 km, and Nordic skis in the off season.
