Morinville-St. Albert: Cass Romyn

Born and raised in southwestern Ontario, Cass Romyn grew up in a small town close to the US border. Her mother was a registered nurse and her father had started his own electronic repair business after emigrating from England. She earned her high school diploma in Chatham, before attending university in Windsor for 2 years, and has continued educating herself as to what is actually occurring in society, both nationally and globally. She currently resides in Gibbons, Alberta, with her husband and daughter.

Cass is extremely passionate about the environment, human/ animal rights, and politics. She enjoys photography and running the trails with her dog, enjoys spending as much time volunteering at her daughter’s school as she can, and detests that oil and plastics are the root of modern society. She is both optimistic, and slightly worried about what the future of Canada holds for her daughter and future generations.

Cass has volunteered in an animal health facility, at retirement facilities, at a hospital, at community functions etc., and tries to be involved in environmental, human/ animal rights, social & political activism as much as possible. She is very much looking forward to introducing her daughter to volunteering and getting involved in her community, as she feels it is important for our youth to realize their role in our nation’s future – caregivers of this great country.
