Councillor John Dowling – District 6 (Hastings/ Judique/ West Bay)

Councillor John Dowling

I grew up on the family farm in Askilton, which is located midway between Port Hawkesbury and West Bay Road. My family has a long and successful history of living in District 6 since settling here in the late 1700’s.

However, like many young people, I decided to leave home. I worked for many years in the automotive industry in Ottawa but the pull of home proved strong. I finally moved back in 1991 when I realized that my heart had always been here.

My strength is drawn from my large family who are scattered all over the country. My adult daughter Hannah lives in Fort McMurray, while my wife Christine and I live on the family farm on the Dowling Road in Askilton with my stepson Aidan. This is where my ancestors have lived for generations and we raise Highland cattle while maintaining hay fields, several gardens and a small orchard.
