he received the prestigious Chief Scouts Award from then-Governor General Edward
Schreyer. In 1984 his team was selected to represent beautiful British Columbia
in the Kinsmen Voyageur Relay. In his spare time, he writes down meaningless
accomplishments from his youth in a lame attempt to impress the reader.</p>
