As we see in the news everyday, things are not always fair or right in our world. Usually these things are far from home, but with COVID-19 and last weekend’s tragedy, they are a good reminder to appreciate what we have. A big virtual hug goes out to:

My family, friends, and co-workers.

All the front line workers who are always keeping us safe and healthy. Kudos to all essential workers who are working through COVID-19.

Responsible governments who are stick handling us through this crisis.

           Canada, a place that we are all very proud to call home.

           You, our customers who have and continue to support us.

Thank you!
