Who am I?

INSPIRED BY DIFFERENCE.

My name is Jeremy Pollard, fondly known as the Caring Canuckian.

I have been involved in automation for 40 years, and have experience in many aspects of automation. Some years ago, I used the moniker of the Crazy Canuckian in reference to the skiing group called the Crazy Canucks from the 1970’s. Dick Morley and Jim Pinto suggested I change it to the caring from the crazy because it better exemplified who I was.  I take that as a compliment from 2 of the biggest visionaries of our industry, so who was I to argue!
