It's hard to win an argument against a smart person, it's damned near impossible against a stupid person.

I know her Dad, good family, real salt of the earth people and this doesn't surprise me at all. What did surprise me was Hughie's saying that he's not the reason she's bullheaded ;D

Hahaha, he's a lying sack of crap ;D

I plan to tell him so when I see him next.

Seriously, if she's anything like her Dad then she has a heart of gold, and I think it shows here.

Good day to all,

I have just been informed that I have been selected as one of the Scotiabank Game Changers,  this competition will award numerous prizes with the biggest one being a $100,000 donation to a charity of choice to the winner.  My profile is now up and the voting has started.  If you have some time please go to the link and vote.  Also if you can pass this on via your FB page or twitter that would be great as well.

https://www.scotiabankgamechangers.com/nomination/?nominationid=174

My charity of choice will be the endowment found that I have set up through Canada Gives (Canadian Torch Foundation) and if I happen to win any of the other prizes then I will donate that to the MacDoanld Youth Services here in Winnipeg.

(You can vote once a day per email address)

Thank you  :salute: :cdn:

Good day to all, I was informed yesterday that I have made it to the final list of 72 for the Scotiabank Game Changers.  This means that I will have a chance at being selected for the final 8.  If I get to the final 8 then that would mean a chance at $100,000 for the my new charitable endowment fund the Canadian Torch Foundation.

Thank you to all who have voted and I hope you continue to vote daily,  my profile will be listed under the "Finalist" tab in the next few days so please continue to vote when and if you can.

Good day all, yesterday I passed on the $1000 Scotiabank Game Changer cheque to Soldier On/Sans Limites.  I now have a 1 in 8 chance at making it to the final 8.  If I make it to the finals then I get a trip to the 100th Grey Cup and a chance to win $100,000 for the Canadian Torch Foundation.

Thank you to those who voted and stand by just in case I make it to the next round, the final winner is based on 50% votes and 50% selection committee.

Pte Rob Webster and MGen Semianiw after receiving the TML's jersey. Sorry Sens,Cal,Edm,Van and Montreal fans but Rob and I still Be-Leaf. LOL  (Army Run Sept 21st 2008)

Duty With Honour
Soldier On
Sgt Andrew McLean :salute: :cdn:

I was asked about this jersey that Rob received from LtGen Semianiw.  I got the jersey while playing in a golf tourny for the Make a Wish Foundation, it was an item up for auction along with two tickets to an upcoming Toronto Maple Leafs game. (great seats)  I bid on the auction item and payed $880.00 dollars for the jersey and tickets.  As some of you know Johnny Bower visited Rob while in hospital and it was a pleasure to set that up and to further get the jersey into Rob's hands... the tickets went back to the Make a Wish Foundation to be used at their discretion.

Soldier On developed from investing and it was the grass roots who made it the program it is today. 

I great pleasure and honour that I hold close to my heart each and every day.

Thanks to all who support and who continue to do what they can to make a difference.

Andrew :salute: :cdn:

Good day everyone,  (I did a search but was unable to find out if anyone had posted this already)

Trevor Green has a chance to receive funds from the Aviva Community Fund Contest.  He has made the semi finals and needs votes to make it to the finals.  It takes a min or two to register and then you can vote once a day until this round ends on December 12th.

Hi everyone,

Here is a link to vote for a Navel veteran who needs all our support.  It takes a few seconds to vote,  please help Eric and his family.  I have sent them the contact info for Soldier On/Sans Limites and hopefully they are able to find them more support, but in the meantime we can do our small part.  :)

It is ill that men should kill one another in seditions, tumults and wars; but it is worse to bring nations to such misery, weakness and baseness
as to have neither strength nor courage to contend for anything; to have nothing left worth defending and to give the name of peace to desolation.

In September 2013, a group of 30 military cyclists will ride 566km, from Quebec to Ottawa, to raise awareness towards the Soldier On program.  We have a goal of 70 000$ that we hope to hand out the Soldier On fund at the Army run on Sept 22nd.  In order to assist the team in reaching their goal, we need exposure to motivate Canadians to give donations that will help our injured Soldiers.  We are affiliated to the army run website to collect the funds, pass this information onwards and share the link to all your friends and family.  It's very easy and the money will go a long way to help the brave that got injured serving their country.

Good day everyone, I am posting a link to another TSN Team Canada Sledge Hockey Profile. This one is of Cpl Dominic Larocques teamate Kevin Rempel, this storey includes Kevin's father who also suffered a spinal cord injury. Each one chose a different path and the outcomes were very different.

According to a report in the Ottawa Citizen the race, per se, is off but the three teams will still go to the South Pole - hopefully by next weekend.


And, according to a report in The Straits Times, "Prince Harry on Friday became the first member of Britain's royal family to reach the South Pole after a three-week charity trek with injured military veterans from Britain, the United States, Canada and Australia. Prince Harry and the 12 servicemen and women reached the globe's most southerly point at 1200 GMT following a 200-mile (320km) journey across the frozen wastes of Antarctica."

Edit: to add

And here is his call to the challenge sponsors reporting their safe arrival at the South Pole.

Well done to all, especially MCpl Chris Downey and Cpl Alexandre Beaudin D’Anjou of Canada.
