Congrats Eric on a long and distinguished career in the CAF, great to work with you at the beginning of 79 Comm Regt in 1993/94. I also think most people in Seely’s Bay Ontario will always consider you the “King of the Bay” due to your outstanding support for the Seely’s Bay community during the 1998 Ice Storm.
