About Family Wheels
Thanks for visiting FamilyWheels.ca!
About Paul: I’ve been a CBC radio journalist since 2007 and am a national award winning broadcaster and member of the Auto Journalists Association of Canada. But long before that, I was a wear tester in the ski world. I developed a love for testing products thoughtfully and thoroughly in that time.
So when I became a father in 2014, I started to hatch an idea for a website that would review vehicles from a family perspective. Too many sites are obsessed with horsepower and how a car whips around the track. The fact is, most of us want a practical look at the features that take us from our homes to the office to swimming lessons safely and comfortably. And the majority of Canadian couples buy a car when a family is on the way. Since launching this website and our accompanying channel, youtube.com/familywheels, we’ve been thrilled to see that people from all over the world appreciate our down-to-earth look at reviewing cars.
About Scott: Scott Shantz is a Vancouver-based radio personality and voice actor. Paul and Scott studied broadcasting together and often found themselves talking cars in the halls. He grew up in a serious car house, turning wrenches on classics throughout his childhood. He’s also a father and husband, always on the hunt for the perfect family ride. So when it was time to look at expanding the reach of Family Wheels, Scott was a natural fit!
Our test vehicles are supplied by auto manufacturers but content is never subject to approval by those companies before being published. Opinions are entirely those of Family Wheels.
