Douglas John "Doug" Currie (born 21 September 1943) is a retired high school guidance counsellor from Fort Frances, Ontario.
When he was 10, he moved with his family in 1954 to Port Arthur. His family lived on McKibbin Avenue from 1954 until about 1961 when he left for university. He attended Port Arthur Collegiate Institute (PACI) for high school and played on their winning football team.
He attended Waterloo Lutheran University (WLU) around 1961.
Doug was a high school guidance councillor in Fort Frances for many years before his retirement around the turn of the century.
Doug has been a passionate golfer for decades. A lower back disc injury in the early 2000s limited his activity for some time.
Doug also enjoys watching CFL football as a fan of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and has attended many annual curling Bryers as an enthusiastic audience member.
