Meet The Candidate

ksp_dyakowskifamily-18_cropped_resized.jpgPeter Dyakowski first arrived in Hamilton after being selected by the Tiger-Cats in the 2006 CFL draft. The Vancouver native quickly fell in love with his adopted city and chose to set down roots. 

Over his 10 years and 160 games with the Ticats, Peter enjoyed career stability uncommon in professional sports. He took advantage of that stability to invest in Hamilton, building a successful small business, and started a family.
