Meet The Team: Canada

Tony Steddy:  Country Coordinator

Tony Steddy, MCS International Country Coordinator for Canada. The Chemical Connection:  In 2003 while I was looking for a sales position in the air purification industry I came across Mr. Art Tibbits. The Tibbits clean air machines that he had developed to save his own life seemed to be working very well. Suffering from MCS in 1984 Mr. Tibbits was given about a year to live due to his failing health. After getting involve with the sales of these machines and understanding the process to clean ones indoor air, it was the amount of people with MCS and severe allergies that started me thinking that this was a career change that I would enjoy.

Background Information:  I had completed a commercial horticultural course at Merrist Wood College Guildford Surry England, and moved out to Canada in Aug 1977 working for a large tree and shrub nursery. After only 2 years I had decided to go out and work for myself as a landscaper. I've spent 30 years in all areas of the industry achieving some nice highs. TV shows, radio, magazines and large feature gardens in the Canadian National Exhibition.

I have been an Optimist (www.optimist.org) for 20 plus years and have been chair of many committees, club president, and district Lt Governor.

My wife Barbara and I got married in 1987, have two kids Kris 17 and Amanda 14. We have all the rest, two dogs, two cars, moved a few times, etc, etc.

The Wider Context:  I have now started working on this MCS-international "Canada" but we are setting up as a foundation or not for profit group. This will be sponsored by Medi-Air (www.tibbitsair.com),  other businesses and individuals. We will also be looking for volunteers to help set up and run MCS-International "Canada". I feel that our clients are looking for this kind of help and just need a kick start to get it of the ground.

While I do not have any allergies, I am fully aware of my customer's situations, concerns and anxieties. Some would not be here today if it weren't for Mr. Tibbits understanding, machines and special filter combinations to achieve their special needs. Some are not here and have passed on their machines so that others can have a better quality of life with MCS. Most of the donated portable machines will be given to The Hospital for Sick Kids "respiratory" in Toronto, Ont, Canada.
