Here you find amazing stories like the local banker who sat on the Board of Skate Canada and developed the financial aid system that put Canada on equal footing with communist countries; the story of the only Canadian voted into the revered Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York; the Chatham bobsledder who bolted past security soldiers in Russia to meet his scheduled time and win a gold medal for Canada.
We present these people with pride. Enjoy the journey.
