Jeremiah Brown Jun 05, 2019
The 4 year Olympian

Originally playing as an offensive lineman in college football for the McMaster Marauders in Hamilton, Brown decided to move to British Columbia to begin his transition to rowing after watching the Canadian men's eights win gold at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.[1] He started a learn-to-row program with the Canadian national program and spent 1,700 hours in training to learn the sport.[1] In his competitive career he won a silver medal at the 2010 nationals as a singles sculler and he next achieved success when he won a bronze at the 2011 World Rowing Championships.[1]

Brown won a silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the men's eight with Andrew Byrnes, Gabriel Bergen, Will Crothers, Douglas Csima, Robert Gibson, Malcolm Howard, Conlin McCabe and Brian Price.[2] The Canadian eights had performed poorly in the heats, finishing last and casting doubts on their ability to win a medal. But in the repechage, they finished second behind the Great Britain crew and in the A final the Canadian boat managed to pull past Great Britain and finish in the silver position behind the German boat who were the reigning three time world champions

Vintage Postcard Collection.

I collect old vintage postcards mainly from Northern Ontario many of them over 100 hundred years old or more.

Unlike other hobbies such as stamps, coins and paper money which for the most part are catalogued, postcards often are not and involve  research to discover  who the photographer was and the location of the subject. Postcards were the most common means of communication before World War 1. I have made some interesting discoveries and   have contributed some of my postcards images to others which have been  published in articles and books

Mental Health Awareness
Mental Health Awareness

Candice has always had a passion for volunteering and sought out the opportunity to be an Ambassador of Hope due to the impact of mental illness on her family.

Raised in Oshawa, Candice graduated from R.S McLaughlin CVI before attending Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo.

Having grown up with a family member diagnosed with Schizophrenia, Candice remembers the devastation the illness and the stigma surrounding it brought her brother and their parents. She also witnessed his recovery during his time as a patient at Ontario Shores and is buoyed by the mental health movement that is normalizing mental illness.

Candice is a Human Resource professional with Durham Region Police Service who is determined to remove the barriers still facing those living with severe and complex mental illness.
