It's been a crazy twelve months since I returned from the World Junior Hockey Championship in the Czech Republic in January of 2020.
Shortly after returning home, I developed a bleeding ulcer and was hospitalized for five days. While under their care, it was discovered I also had a tumour... and sadly... I’ve now been diagnosed with stomach cancer. But after a complete removal of my stomach, nearly dying after a chest infection while in hospital, I've survived plus a recent CT scan tells me there's been no spread or any visual signs of cancer anywhere. SO time to get back to work.
I will continue my fund raising efforts with the Cure-Cancer Foundation and Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton. Plus I also urge you all to keep on supporting your local Cancer Centres. I still do. We ARE making headway in so many areas. We CAN do this!
Finally, on a personal note: all your texts, emails, house visits and phone calls of support truly were overwhelming.
For all of my existing partners, and new ones waiting in the wings, I thank you for all your patience and I'm excited to be back at it!
I have a wonderful family, a great group of close friends, a tremendous bunch of work colleagues plus a dedicated group of folks who only know me only through my work. I thank you all...and I love you all.
Let’s get RE-started.
Join me along with veteran sports journalist Robin Brownlee for our weekly one hour audio sports podcast. We focus on most sports, but try to stay on top of the hottest topics of the week in Canada.

Pleased say I'm hosting/producing a bi monthly podcast for Investment Advisor Dustin Lamontagne from Mackie Research Capital Corporation in Edmonton.
Our podcasts are available for download at all the usual places.
I've sure had a blast with my friends over at UP! 99.3 Radio throughout the last year and a half. I first walked through their energetic building and found the place is full of creativity and familiar media friends.
Radio times have changed recently, so I'm not sure they'll be needing my news/sports reading skills in the future. But it's been fun.
