My name is Mike Robertson, and I am a mechanic apprentice at Parkside Motors. I was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, but have been on Vancouver Island since 2012. I first met Gerry and the guys when I was given a placement with Parkside Motors for a two week experience program through Camosun College. It was such a great experience and I was thrilled to be invited back. I am working as an apprentice with Parkside in between each of my theoretical courses at the college. Each level of theory precedes on another stint of hands on apprenticeship until I go back to write my final exams and become a full fledged mechanic. Since the shop has expanded to a fourth bay I have the privilege of taking on more responsibility while learning the fundamentals from a great group of honest and respectful mechanics.
