Great Show of Support for RCMP

2015 01 27 bbq fundThe line was long and steady most of the afternoon. A great show of support for Cst. Wynn's family and the RCMP. Photo by Tony Stacey



While flags were lowered across Canada and hearts hung heavy with grief for the loss of RCMP Cst. Wynn many people came together as one and united.

Isaac McNeill, a former Corrections Officer and promoter (SJE Events) took this loss to heart as do many who work closely in the brotherhood/sisterhood of law enforcement and took it upon himself to organize a fund-raising BBQ outside the RCMP Detachment in Fort Sask on Saturday, January 24th.

With the help of some good friends and a few volunteers Isaac had rolled out the BBQ in which people could buy a hot dog and pop for any donation they could afford or chose to give in support of Cst. Wynn's family. Over 400 people came by to contribute with $3883.10 in cash. To top it all off, Mike from Pot's Bar and Grill stepped in with a huge cheque donation to bring that total to an even $5000. Way to go Mike! We need more stories like this in our country. This is a good example of why I chose to live in Fort Saskatchewan and why I love it so much here.  Hats off to Station Square CO-OP for donating to the cause as well.

The turnout and response to say the least was far beyond what Isaac could have imagined. I dropped in to pay my respects and donate and was floored by how many people braved the chilling winds to get in line for the BBQ and donate to such a great cause. It wasn't just about donating to a family, but it was also a huge show of respect and admiration for our RCMP all across Canada.

If the recent events have shown or proved anything to the general public is how much our officers put on the line every time they go out to do their job. They put their lives on the line each and every day, knowing that they may never return to their families because they were out protecting ours.





* (Picture 6) Was also pretty neat to see former Edmonton Oilers player and assistant coach Charlie Huddy (middle) in the lineup also showing his support. He was kind enought to pose with Staff Sergeant Craig O'Neil (left) and Isaac McNeill.



I personally have a 1st cousin married to an RCMP Constable in Ottawa so when a tragedy like this happens I can't help but think this could've been him we are talking about. I respect what our RCMP do for us and I thank each of you for showing your support.


HERE is the official story from news reporter Lisa Ecker.

Element Theatre presents Little Shop Of Horrors!

2015 01 26 little shop of horrors 02Stage two of the man eating flower, it would still double in size! Photo by Alex Tostawaryk.

I've performed in a few theatre productions back in grade school. From some reason I was always cast as the bad guy. Maybe I just have an evil face, hopefully not.

After high school I went to film school in Vancouver and since then I haven't been to a single play until this weekend. The Element Theatre presented 'Little Shop Of Horrors', and I made sure to be there. I'm a huge fan of the 1986 film adaption starring Rick Moranis and Ellen Greene, and especially Steve Martin's role as the bad guy (You'll be a dentist!). What really sparked my curiosity was the giant man eating flower. How could they pull that off onstage? There were actually three versions of the flower - small, large, and man-eating size. The group pulled off the the show flawlessly and I only wish I could see it again.

I spoke with the two lead actors, Cole McPherson and Taylor Cox, afterwards. They commented on the entire experience.
