Hamilton mountain businessman Chris Ecklund is taking a pass at politics.

The 47-year-old entrepreneur, best known for his promotion of the city’s waterfalls. said it isn’t the right time to challenge for the mayor’s chair.

“I will not be throwing my hat into the ring,” said Ecklund.

Ecklund, president and chief executive officer of Canadian Process Serving, is also heavily involved in Canadian Heroes, a project close to his heart. Created to provide financial and moral support to Canada’s military serving in Afghanistan, Ecklund said the project has attracted increasing support from Canadian veterans and their families.

Ecklund’s political involvement has always been contingent on former mayor Larry Di Ianni’s plans. A supporter of Di Ianni, Ecklund has encouraged the former Stoney Creek councillor to take another shot.
