Hi I'm Ken Kyle

I am a senior missionary from Canada serving an 18 month mission in Orpington, England, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a retired public servant, lobbyist and social policy analyst. I served as a public servant for the Prime Minister of Canada, the Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs of the Province of Alberta and as Executive Assistant to the Mayor of the City of Edmonton. For twenty-one years I worked as the chief lobbyist for the Canadian Cancer Society in Ottawa. I was a part of a coalition that successfully lobbied the Parliament of Canada to become the first country to ban tobacco advertising and promotion and to ban smoking on domestic commercial passenger flights. On the international front I co-chaired the Smoke Free Skies Campaign that got smoking out of all international flights through a resolution by the International Civil Aviation Organization and I worked with the World Health Organization to help pass and implement the first international health treaty -- the International Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. I worked in many countries to help local health officials fight tobacco companies.I was a key lobbyist to get the federal government to set up and fund the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control. I was awarded a Queen's Jubilee Medal by the Canadian Senate for achievements in Public Health. After retirement I served on the Board of Directors of the Alberta Public Health Association and on a committee of the Canadian Public Health Association. I

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a teen a friend gave me an anti-Mormon book about Joseph Smith. This turned out to be a blessing as it caused me to study in depth Mormon Church history.

How I live my faith

I have served in many Church callings. I love my wife and eight children all who are active in the Mormon Church.
