Paul Galinski

Paul Galinski reports on a wide-variety of news, community-related and sports stories. While much of his time at the Peak is spent writing about City of Powell River and qathet Regional District activities, he thoroughly enjoys getting out into the community, meeting with people who have great stories to tell. He also enjoys the prospect of photographing a wide variety of subjects, rarely going anywhere without his camera.
Paul, in his time away from work, enjoys watching sports, and is passionate about hockey and football. Paul is also a charter member of the Otago Rugby Club and enjoys the ruffians’ game played by gentlemen.
Always on the hunt for stories, Paul appreciates hearing from residents of qathet region. Ideas can be emailed to reporter@prpeak.com
