Frank James Ney is the mayor of Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada, for 21 years. Ney also served as a member of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia. He was known for his outgoing personality, the habit of civic events, and dressing up as a pirate for appearances, and played a central role in initiating bathtub races across the Strait of Georgia from Nanaimo to Vancouver. He is an active skier, swimmer, figure skater, and rower. During the 1950/1951 season, he was president of the Nanaimo Figure Skating Club.
