Pedro Arrais is a reporter with the Times Colonist who is most comfortable when he uses his curiosity and listening skills to engage with the public. He covers breaking news, cats, and any other story that needs telling. He writes the weekly Our Community column.
After obtaining a certificate in public relations from the University of Victoria, he worked in communications at different levels of government.
Before joining the Times Colonist in 2006, Pedro worked in the automotive industry. He still can’t stop looking at or writing about cars. Believing in the adage “mens sana in corpore sano,” Pedro enjoys coaching 10K runners by day and cycling into the wee hours at night.
