Morgan Thompson

Feb. 28, 2002

Morgan Thompson, born in Kitchener, Ontario in 1930, came to Sechelt in 1954. He ran Sechelt's movie theatre in the old dance pavilion with partner Bill Parsons. They were also partners in "Nose to Tail" Sechelt's Men's Wear store located in the same building until 1957 when they moved the store to Cowrie Street. Mr. Thompson became sole owner and changed the name to Morgan's Men's Wear. He served as an alderman for Sechelt from 1965 to 1967, again from 1976-1979 and as president of the Chamber of Commerce, and chair of the Timber Days Committee.
