About Family Wheels
Thanks for visiting FamilyWheels.ca!
I’ve been a CBC radio journalist since 2007 and am a national award winning broadcaster. But long before that, I was a wear tester in the ski world. My propensity for pushing ski gear to its limits had magazines, ski companies and clothing manufacturers lined up to see if their products could stand up to my hard skiing style. 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.
Devon, Roger and I look at vehicles the same way you do and give practical day-to-day advice on what makes the right car for your growing family. I’m a member of the Auto Journalists Association of Canada and take great pride in bringing you car reviews from a unique and thoughtful perspective.
So check back often, let me know what you’d like more of and thanks again for stopping by Family Wheels. ~ Paul Karchut
