John’s path began from a small prairie farm and eight years in a one room schoolhouse. He has a degree in Political and Economic Studies (With Great Distinction) and a Juris Doctorate (J.D.) Law Degree (1984) from the University of Saskatchewan. He is a practising member of the British Columbia Law Society.

Prior to 1984, John was a student, businessman, broadcaster and political journalist. From 1984 to 1987, before moving to BC, he was a businessman and a senior policy and legal analyst with the Saskatchewan Department of Justice where he headed extensive programs of business law reform and enforcement.
John’s past and current work, in public and private sectors, has involved public law regulation, contract management and business management in diverse sectors. Training and speaking projects were always a major focus.
In BC, John has helped manage client businesses and practised business, corporate, education, workplace, immigration and professions law. This work continues – in part, through greater integration between education, workplace integrated learning and corporate training.
John has also done significant work in the areas of: consumer protection; privacy and personal information; private investigation management and regulation; financial services, securities and insurance law; money laundering and terrorist financing compliance; real estate development; environmental law; film production and distribution; media and broadcasting law; aeronautics; airline tour management.
John is focused on 2050 Knowledge Corp., but still practices law in these areas through his firm HKMK Law Canada – primarily for select corporate clients.
John enjoys non-fiction reading, sports and spending time with his daughters and grand daughters.
