ners in their respective
categories at the Tourism
Westman Tribute to Tour-
ism Awards Gala held at
Brandons Royal Oak Inn.
Te local Grey Cup
Tour Train Committee
captured the Partnership
Award for their eforts in
pulling together a success-
ful day which attracted
1,400 visitors to Minnedo-
sa to witness this once in a
lifetime opportunity. With
only a small budget to
work with, the committee
formed more than 21 part-
nerships to make the day
happen. Minnedosa was
one of only three stops for
the train in Manitoba and
the only stop in Westman.
In the Service Ex-
cellence Category, two
Minnedosa accomoda-
tions were nominated; Te
Gateway Motel and Til-
son Place Bed and Break-
fast. As there can only be
one winner per category,
Tilson Place was recog-
nized. Since purchasing
Minnedosas historic cas-
tle in 1999, Darrell and Pat
Graham have gone the ex-
tra mile to provide guests
with a most enjoyable ex-
perience while staying at
their Bed and Breakfast
and visiting local busi-
nesses and attractions. Ac-
comodating their guests,
the Grahams ofer pick-up
and drop-of service to and

One of Westmans
most popular events is the
annual musical production
put on by the Strathclair
Drama Club. Te popular-
ity of these productions re-
sulted in a Tribute to Tour-

the Year category.
Starting with its f rst
production back in 1982,

900 individuals have been
involved with the Drama
Club in one way or anoth-
er and there have been a
total of 166 performances
with ticket sales over the
years totalling 54,250 seats.
Tis is an amazing feat for
a drama club located in a
small rural community.
Each year, the production
draws an audience from
near and far with some
travelling from neighbour-
ing Saskatchewan to enjoy
the amazing talents of ac-
tors, singers, musicians
and dancers involved in
the drama club.

Over 12 years experience in the construction industry

he Elphinstone Com-
munity Hall was alive
with people on Saturday,
May 25th. Tis was due to
an event entitled Cutting
My Hair for Kidney Care.
Over 50 people came to see
Anita Hart shave her hair
for the Brandon Regional
Health Centre Foundation.
In January, RCMP of-
fcer Anita Hart was diag-
nosed with Small Vessel
Vasculitis, which is an in-
fammation of the arter-
ies. Tis infammation has
lead to stage one Chronic
Kidney Disease. I am now
taking chemo drugs to get
my kidneys to slow down.
Te drugs are telling my
kidneys, Whoa, chilax
dudes, you dont need
to work so hard! Anita
laughs. When her hair be-
gan to fall out, she knew
she was just going to cut
it all of, but then a friend
suggested, Why dont you
make it into a fundraiser?
It was all very spur
of the moment! she said,
But it was a good day and
very nice to see everyone.
A hairdresser from Chat-
ters Salon in Brandon took
the day of and came to El-
phinstone to do the shav-
ing. Four of Anitas co-
workers also volunteered
to come down and be
shaved. To lose your hair,
however fat and thin,
is disturbing. It is how
people identify you and I
wouldnt ask someone to
shave theirs of, Anita be-
gan. Tey left her until the
end, shaving of the other
male RCMP of cers frst.
For the guys, it was noth-
ing new to them. I had to
wait to the end and I was
really nervous, but now I
know I can rock the bald.
An Epicure specialist
also came to Elphinstone
and put out many prod-
ucts for display. She held
a draw for two baskets of
Epicure products and ac-
cepted orders with the
proceeds also going to-
wards the Brandon Hospi-
tal Foundation. Her eforts
totaled in $106. Te El-
phinstone Lions Club also
played a role in the event,
organizing the Communi-
ty Hall and selling drinks
and snacks.
Proceeds from the
event went to the Brandon
Regional Health Centre
Foundation. Te founda-
tion is an independent,
non-proft organization
that raises funds to be able
to support the healthcare
needs of their patients that
are not funded by the gov-
ernment. Anita was able
to raise $4,783.00 with
more to come. My origi-
nal goal was $1,000.00!
Im very excited because
I have exceeded all my
expectations by leaps and
Te support that I
received was amazing,
and the help that I had at
the Brandon Hospital was
amazing. Looking on the
positive side of things, she
told me, It is all part of
the adventure. I can still
do things on my own and
dont need someone to
live in with me. Te only
complaint I have is how
cold it is without my hair!

Dear Editor,
hile I may enjoy Robert Marks often critical but
interesting remarks to this paper, I do take issue
with his most recent criticism of the Minnedosa Golf
Course (Letters to the Editor, May 31st issue). His main
concern is the source of payment of the $30,000.00 ex-
penditure needed for irrigation purposes at the golf
course. Firstly, without going into details, the funds will
not directly be used for irrigation of the golf course, but
more for ef uent treatment as Mr. Marks acknowledges,
although the Club will beneft from the excess clean wa-
ter. Whether or not the funds come out of the utility ac-
count or the general account of the Town, as raised by
him, is not the issue. But rather, Mr. Marks overall view
seems to be one of either the golf club pay the cost, or
let the course go under if it cannot operate as any other
business venture must do.
His letter seems to indicate that he is unaware of
the fnancial status of the golf course. For one thing, he
compares the assessment of the course against the as-
sessment of the golf course at Neepawa, which is like
comparing apples and oranges as one and the same.
Te Neepawa course may indeed be taxed on its full,
or nearly full, assessed value, but it is a privately owned
course, whereas Minnedosa Golf Course is located on
Town owned land, and therefore this is refected in the
assessment for tax purposes. Taxes are imposed on a
reduced mill rate in recognition of the recreational pur-
poses of the golf course to the community. Further, the
golf course carries a substantial debt load to the Town
to repay the cost of installing the upper nine holes a few
years back. Washroom facilities were installed on the
golf course itself a few years back, and this was paid for
directly by the golf club.
Generally speaking, the golf club is responsible for
all running expenses and upkeep to the golf course. It is
hard to understand why Mr. Marks is so negative on the
Golf Course. It is enjoyed by very many, both resident
and non-resident, with memberships from Brandon
and other communities, all of which helps bring in add-
ed revenue from food, lodging and merchandise. Golf-
ing has been enjoyed around the world for hundreds
of years and will continue to do so. In Manitoba alone,
there are across the province, 125 golf courses in com-
munities large and small, enjoyed by thousands, not
only adults, but many of the youth of the province. So
when he says not many golf, I fnd that a strange com-
ment indeed.
People come to a community for employment, and
bring or raise their families there, but other reasons for
their remaining in a community is the ability to enjoy
facilities the community has to ofer such as golf, curl-
ing, hockey rinks, baseball felds, skiing and other recre-
ational facilities.
Minnedosa has its share of these, and I hope Mr.
Marks may wish to avail himself of these amenities from
time to time.

Dear Editor,
P Robert Sopuck talks a lot about the federal bud-
get, but he has been noticeably silent on its hid-
den tax increases on small businessso Liberal MPs are
speaking up.
Small businesses and the people who work in them
are the lifeblood of our communitiesevery year they
create half of all new jobs in Canada and account for 40
percent of our GDP. Teir success is critical to getting lo-
cal economies moving again.
Yet in the budget, the Conservatives are hitting
small business owners with a tax increase that will cost
them over $2.3 billion over the next fve years. Te gov-
ernment is once again choosing to hiking taxesnot
lower them.
Tis comes on top of another Conservative hike to
payroll taxestheir thirdEmployment Insurance pre-
mium increase so farcharges that are literally a tax on
hiring more workers.
Te budget also risks undermining rural entrepre-
neurs access to capital by raising taxes on credit unions,
making it tougher for them to compete against the big
All of these changes make it more expensive to own
and run your own business.
As a former small business owner myself, I under-
stand some of the challenges facing community shops,
restaurants, cafes and other businesses. Tats why Lib-
erals want government to be a thoughtful advocate for
small businessesand not to hinder them by adding to
their tax burden.
Yours sincerely,
Joyce Murray,
MP, Liberal Party of Canada Critic for Small Business
Hidden tax hikes hurt small business
innedosa Postmistress, Jean Olenick, retired
last Friday, June 7th, after 33 years of service
with Canada Post. When asked about her favourite
part of the job, she replied, I really enjoy working
with the people. Tey are what made the job inter-
esting and I have always had really good customers.
While attending Brandon University, Jean be-
gan work at the local Post Of ce to pay her way. It
wasnt long afterwards that she got married and
moved to Minnedosa, where she worked at the
Minnedosa Post Of ce from 1981-1995. Afterwards,
she took the position of Postmistress in Rapid City
because it was a full-time position. It wasnt until
2002 that she came back to Minnedosa to work as
the Postmistress. Tis was her f nal post before she
retired, lasting eleven years.
Te Postmistress is basically responsible for the
running of the business. Jean was responsible for
customer service, making sure the mail was deliv-
ered, and seeing that everything ran smoothly.
Tey have come a long way since Jean began
working at the Post Of ce. We have gone from di-
nosaur to high tech! exclaimed Jean. In the past,
they used paper and pen, but there has been a huge
transformation since. Now they have computers,
digital scales and much more.
I really have enjoyed working here. T e cus-
tomers were great and I always had such a good
crew, Jean said. In the future, she hopes to do some
travelling, but would like to stay in Minnedosa. I
have been telling everyone I am just going to make it
up as I go along, just enjoy life.

espite the 2010 7.0
earthquake that dev-
astated Port-au-Prince, it
is said that Haitians main-
tain a welcoming and
proud disposition. One
such Haitian goes by the
name of Wesly Francois.
Wesly and his wife Jusna
operate a childrens home
located just outside of
Port-au-Prince, the larg-
est city in Haiti. In 2012
he came to Minnedosa to
share his story and to meet
his biological sister Bea-
trice Butler.
Growing up on the
streets of Port-au-Prince,
Wesly has always retained
a ferce desire to give chil-
dren a better childhood
than his own. As a street
kid, he often went to the
church for food. Tere, a
man by the name of David
Gingrich saw something a
little diferent in Wesly and
sponsored him so he could
receive an education. Mary
Dalton, a supporter of
Wesly, described her own
experiences with him. To
her, Wesly was a testament
to the reaches of investing
in people. When you in-
vest in someone, they feel
a responsibility to invest
in themselves and then to
give back.
Te idea that sparked
the Little Bouquet Chil-
drens Home began when
Wesly and Jusna tried to
adopt Weslys sisters son
Ritchie. Afterwards, they
took in a deaf and mute
child, which lead to help-
ing more orphaned chil-
dren. Some that had been
orphaned by the events of
the earthquake in 2010.
Today, they have 17 chil-
dren at the orphanage. As
a kid, Wesly became very
streetwise, which is a skill
that helps him to under-
stand what orphaned chil-
dren are going through.
Te home is a 20 bed facil-
ity that can be expanded as
the need arises. It was built
in 2011 by a work crew
from Ontario.
I had the opportunity
to go to school because
someone cared, some-
one felt that I could make
a dif erence and it is my
mission to live up to that,
Wesly Francois tells Mary
Dalton one evening.
Weslys idea of a chil-
drens home has been a
work in progress for many
years. Starting before 2010,
his plans were put on hold
by the earthquake that
devastated Port-au-Prince.
During that time he was
hired by the United States
and worked as an inter-
After coming back to
Canada for a second time,
he has been making pre-
sentations across Canada
and explaining his ideas.
In the future he is planning
to build a school. Current-
ly, children have to walk an
hour and a half to attend
the closest school. By us-
ing a building closer to the
childrens home, all of the
children at the orphanage
would be able to attend

rost late last weekend
caught some of the ear-
ly seeded canola and fax
in the early seedling stage
of development. Te frost
in regards to temperature
and duration was not that
severe however the major-
ity of plants were at a very
susceptible stage of de-
velopment for frost. Fields
with higher residue levels
and consequently organic
matter also tended to have
a higher level of injury due
to the soil having more air
pockets. Tese air pockets
in the organic matter will
take on the air temperature
and are therefore more
sensitive to freezing night
time temperatures. In or-
der to reduce the air spaces
many producers will heavy
harrow cereal residue prior
to seeding canola or fax so
as to densify the top soil
reducing the number of air
Canola seedlings will
usually recover from light
frosts that do not damage
the growing point. Black-
ened or browned cotyle-
dons do not necessarily
mean the plants will die
since in most cases a new
leaf will emerge within two
to three days if growing
conditions improve.
Perhaps the easi-
est way to determine the
health of the plant is to
observe the stem area just
below the cotyledons. If
this area is still white or
purple then nutrients will
continue to feed the grow-
ing point and the plant
will throw out a new leaf.
A brown or pinched of
stem would indicate that
nutrients can no longer
feed the growing point and
the plant will likely die of.
A complicating factor in
canola is that fea beetles
can often provide the fn-
ishing blow to badly frozen
canola since they will fo-
cus on eating the still green
growing point. Flea beetle
populations are increas-
ing daily and with warmer
temperature forecast for
later this week their feed-
ing activity is also likely to
increase. Te critical plant
count number for canola is
to have a minimum of three
to four plants per square
foot in order to maintain
average yield potential.
Flax is somewhat similar
but is perhaps much more
sensitive at emergence
then canola and more tol-
erant once it is beyond the
two leaf stage. In fax one
would like to maintain a
minimum of 25-30 plants
per square foot.

uicide. Not a word that
you hear very often,
but for some people, it is a
word that they have to deal
with every day of their life.
Many know what it is like
to lose a person you love
to a mental illness, and Bill
Werthmann is one of them.
After his daughter
committed suicide 10
years ago, Bill felt the stig-
ma surrounding the words
suicide and mental Illness.
After dancing around the
term for eight years, I de-
cided to follow my Grand-
mas advice, Bill said, She
always told me that some-
thing good has to come out
of everything, and thats
when I knew. Bill had al-
ways been a fan of cycling,
and with his pipe-dream
of cycling across Canada
in mind, decided that he
would bike from Victo-
ria, BC to St. Johns, New-
Tree riders includ-
ing Bill, Sue Sohnle, Terry
Fannon, along with their
driver Al Carlson left on
Wednesday, May 8th at
8:45 a.m. and have been
biking on average 120 km
each day. Tey passed
through Minnedosa last
Tis ride isnt only to
commemorate her life, but
also to start the conversa-
tion about mental health
issues, said Sue Sohnle.
Which is what they have
done. Tey also have been
stopping in major cities
along the way to host con-
certs with local charities
geared towards mental ill-
nesses, especially in young
Each person had their
own memorable moments
but all three cyclists agree
that it is the little moments
that count. Whether it was
the man and his border
collie that f lled their ice
cooler for them, or getting
a glimpse into someone
elses past as they talked
about their lives. Once,
we stopped at a bar to use
the Wi-Fi and we got talk-
ing to a tree planter. He
told us his struggles with
depression and I think it
was the frst time he had
ever talked about it, said
Fannon, I think he went
away feeling a little better.
We arent councillors, and
we dont try to council. Just
listen. When asked about
any other memorable mo-
ments, Fannon chuckled,
A hot shower at the end of
each day!
Te group has also
gone through some tough
emotional and physical
barriers on their way to
Minnedosa. On the sec-
ond day of their journey,
Bill had pushed himself a
little too far and injured his
leg. It was a big climb from
Hope to Princeton and it
was also really steep. I was
upset because I couldnt
be out there with them,
and they were trying to
make it up this steep climb.
It was physically tough and
emotionally tough. I think
we would all agree that
this was the hardest day.
Te team has been making
remarkable progress de-
spite headwinds gusting to
more than 50 km/hr.
Bill talked about a
speech he heard from a
lady in Kelowna. She now
has three kids and her hus-
band has Schizophrenia.
She was able to turn his
illness into a point of pride
for her, Bill explained,
her husband was thriving
with it. She told the audi-
ence that, Schizophrenia
is something my husband
has, not something he is.
Bill then told me that if you,
change the word schizo-
phrenia to mental illness, it
pretty much sums up what
we are trying to say here.

awks for Change
is a student group
from Strathclair School.
Consisting of fve mem-
bers, Grace Kang, Shaylyn
Lamb, Jessica Arnfnson,
Robyn Gerrard and Lisa
Rystephanuk, the group
is involved in a number
of volunteer activities at a
global and local level. Tis
year, they were awarded
the Manitoba School
Boards Association Stu-
dent Citizenship Award
for their eforts.
It all began in No-
vember of 2011. Before
the 16,000 screaming stu-
dents at the We Day au-
dience, Grace Kang was
picked to participate in a
competition against two
other students on stage.
Tey were asked, If you
could go anywhere in the
world, where would you
go and why? Te audi-
ence then cheered for the
answer they liked best.
Tey didnt want to see
us fail! Grace reminisced,
Te crowd was very sup-
portive. After winning the
competition, Grace was
able to choose four friends
and a teacher to travel to a
destination of her choice
as a volunteer.
It was always be-
tween India and Kenya,
but our teacher wasnt
able to make it to Kenya
in August, so we decided
upon India in the end,
says Lisa. Tey arrived in
Delhi at 2:00 a.m. It was
so hot that day. 45C and
85% humidity. You could
just feel the heat. And ev-
erything smelled of India,
you cant even put it into
words, said Robyn. Dur-
ing these frst few days, the
girls were able to see the
government buildings, the
Taj Mahal, Jemaa Mosque,
and Ghandis cremation
site. Afterwards they went
to the State of Rajasthan to
volunteer in Barind, a very
small and very poor com-
Te group was able to
work with the tribal com-
munity located there, to
begin the foundation to
a new school room. Te
tribe held a welcome cer-
emony for the girls where
they were invited to par-
ticipate. Tey all agreed
that this is one of their fa-
vourite memories. While
the tribal leader was
blessing the girls, their
presence, and the land
they were to build on, he
was also praying for rain.
As soon as the ceremony
ended, our video camera
battery died, and then it
poured rain. It was like
we were only supposed to
remember this moment
in our memories, Robyn
recalled. Lisa also added,
To the community, it was
like Christmas had come.
Tey were so excited. To-
gether, they worked on the
foundation of the build-
ing as well as painting the
Te girls also spent a
day in the life of a momma.
Tey followed her around
and helped her with her
daily chores, including
baking Nan bread, feeding
the goats, walking to get
the water, and plastering
the cracks in the house. It
felt more like she helped
us to do things rather than

Te f ve members of
Hawks for Change have al-
ways volunteered at difer-
ent events. Tey have now
fnished their 4th presen-
tation on their experienc-
es in India, and donated
approximately $800 back
to Barind. Tey have also
organized clothing drives,
food drives, and volun-
teered at the Soup Kitchen
in Brandon.
Next year, most of the
group will be attending
University. Grace is plan-
ning to attend the Univer-
sity of Manitoba and the
pre-med program with
long term goals of assist-
ing at Natural Disasters.
Robyn is planning to go
to the Lakeland College
for Agribusiness and work
in a developing country.

and wants to volunteer in
other countries to teach
sports. Shaylyn is still un-
decided, but has time to
decide as she goes into her
fnal year of High School.

couple of items from
previous articles have
struck a chord with folks,
so I have decided to revisit
Te story on wolves
sparked a few spin-of
stories. Elgin Hall from
Ditch Lake, north of Er-
ickson, called me shortly
after reading the story on
wolves. He recently had
the opportunity to watch
the interactions of three
wolves that had killed a
deer in his back yard, less
than 50 metres from the
Elgin said that the
deer appeared to be sleep-
ing under a spruce when
it was killed in a surprise
attack as there were few
signs of struggle. While
Elgin missed the actual
event, he was able to watch
the follow up interactions
between the wolves, and
also between them and a
At one point in time,
the coyote got a little too
close, and the wolves laid
a licking on it. Te coyote
escaped to live another
day, a little wiser and more
cautious, I assume.
I also received a call
from Don Layh from Rus-
sell. He told me about see-
ing a pack of fve wolves
travel past his cabin in the
Duck Mountains area, near
San Clara. Tey seemed
unaware of him and his
family, travelling within
30 metres of the cabin. He
happened to be hosting a
visitor from Switzerland
at the time, and all were
amazed to experience this
truly Canadian moment.
On a dif erent note,
the Blue Jays reported by
Wayne Banting and neigh-
bours on the south side of
the Duck Mountains got
me scratching my head. I
have done a bit more re-
search, and it appears that
large focks of blue Jays are
relatively common in the
fall and winter, especially
further south. A case in
point, Bull Run in Virginia
reported over 1100 Blue
Jays on their Christmas
Bird Count.
However, the f ocks
of 50 plus jays that Wayne
reported are unusual for
Manitoba and Saskatch-
ewan. I could fnd no re-
ports of such large focks,
although, admittedly my
search was not exhaustive.
I did, however, look
back over the Christmas
bird count data, and this
years counts of jays in
both Balmoral (near Win-
nipeg) and Yorkton were
all time highs, as was Rid-
ing Mountains count. Tis
would indicate that Blue
Jays were in abundance in
this part of the prairies.
On a personal note, we
had a record 15 Blue Jays at
our bird feeder this spring
the highest by at least
double of what we would
normally see at our feeder.
Ray and Kay Frey also re-
ported the same situation,
with more jays at their
Crawford Park feeder than
ever before.
Why Blue Jays were
found in such large num-
bers this year, I still dont
know. But an interesting
pattern did show up when
I was reviewing the data
from across North America
Blue Jay populations ap-
pear to go up and down on
a biennial basis, so if I was
a betting man, I would put
my money on there being
fewer Blue Jays on next
years count.
Nature notes:
Whats the tick
status in your
To date, I have no-
ticed a sharp decline in the
number of ticks on fam-
ily members and on the
dog. Tis has got me idly
speculating about the situ-
ation are the ticks merely
delayed by the late spring,
and Ill eat my words in a
couple of weeks time? Or,
did the late spring mean
that the ticks had a tough
time, and the population is
Now I am going to go
on a slight, but related,
tangent, so bear with me.
Timing in nature is marked
in diferent ways by difer-
ent species. Te behaviour
of some species is trig-
gered by changes in day
length elk bugling and
ruf ed grouse drumming
are two examples. Others
are af ected by weather.
Most insect behaviour is
weather dependent, and
frogs calling in spring is
another prime example.
What about ticks?
Ticks rely on mice and oth-
er small mammals to host
them during the winter. At
some point during the late
winter or early spring, the
ticks feed from their small
host, and then drop of and
change into adults. Te
adults then wait for larger
prey (to wit, humans and
dogs) to come by.
Since they feed on
warm blooded animals,
the weather shouldnt
make too much difer-
ence to them. Perhaps
the timing of their moults
is triggered by day length
or changes in rodent body
chemistry, and thus they
drop of the mice and voles
at the same time every
year. Some years could be
good (ie dry and warm)
and some springs could be
poor (ie snowy and cold).
Tis could explain why
people say that the num-
ber of ticks have increased
in the past 20 years or
so. According to weather
records, and ice condi-
tions on Clear Lake, recent
springs have been arriving
earlier compared to the
1960s and 70s. Ticks might
be f nding these early
springs to their liking. Not
so much this year, though.
If my theory proves
correct, then there may
be fewer ticks about this
spring. However, other
people have reported near
normal tick numbers, so
the efects are not uniform
across the area. I guess
time will tell whether my
cold spring theory is cor-
rect or not.

construction for the past
few weeks as volunteers
worked together to create
a recreational area. Over
17 people showed up to
help on Wednesday, May
29th, while another work
day was scheduled four
days prior. Te area feels
like the best kept secret in
Minnedosa. It has been
sheltered by the trees in a
way that you can barely see
it from the road. My kids
would love something like
this, Colleen McNabb, a
volunteer, stated.
Located opposite Prai-
rie Concrete, the Rivers
Edge Recreation Park is a
project to create an out-
door recreational area.
Over the past few weeks
they have removed sticks
and cleared out the area,
built bike jumps, and
picked up lots of garbage.
Tis project began in
spring of 2012, and com-
mittee members formed a
fve-year plan. By the end,
there will be a walking
trail, bike park, picnic area,
parking lot, dog park, nine-
hole disc golf course, and
skate park. We wanted to
make it really accessible
to everyone, seniors and
kids, said Casey Vander-
hart, vice-president of the
While no plans for
another work day are in
the works, committee
members are busy writing
proposals and organizing

proximately 70% of that funding available.

After much anticipation
Brooklyn proudly welcomed
her sister
Braxtyn Janay
on March 27th at 8:19 a.m.
with her parents Jared and
Stacey Silverthorn.
Teir little snugabunny
was 7lbs 14oz. and was 20
inches long.
Since bringing her home
and watching her
grow each day,
Brooklyn has learned that
being a big sister
is sometimes
even better than being
a princess!
Both girls would like
to thank their friends
and family
for the thoughtful gifts
that they have received.

First of all I would like to
thank my family and friends
for being there for me when I
was in the hospital in Vancou-
ver and was so sick spending
time in critical care and the
ICU. Your continued sup-
port helped me get back on
my feet and keep training
for the Rugby Canada U20
Team when I thought it was
too late. I would also like to
thank the community for all
the well wishes I got while in
the hospital and the messages
I got through the rest of my
family wishing me good luck
and telling me to stay posi-
tive. When you read this I will
be in Temuco, Chile compet-
ing in the Junior World Rugby
Trophy May 28
-June 9
Representing Canada and
Minnedosa on the world stage
is a dream come true. Tanks
for all the continued support.
