Cam Tait is a newspaper columnist with 40 years of experience.  He lives with Cerebral Palsy and doesn’t speak clearly.  Cam has many stories.  He writes them and his friends read them on Cam’s Crew.

Here is Cam’s script:

THIS IS LLOYD LEWIS, PRESIDENT OF TODAYVILLE – AND I’M READING CAM TAIT’S WORDS ON CAM’S CREW.WHEN CONTEMPLATING WRITING THE ANNUAL EFFORT ATTEMPTING TO EXPRESS GRATITUDE AND APPRECIATION TO OUR MILITARY VETERANS ON NOVEMBER 11TH, DON CHERRY WASN’T A SPEC ON THE RADAR SCREEN.

THE THESIS, OF COURSE, IS TO HONOR CANADIAN VETERANS WHO SACRAFICED THEMSELVES SO WE CAN LIVE WITH FREEDOM IN 2019 … IT’S A REMINDER, TOO, OF THE ACTIVE CANADIAN MEN AND WOMEN IN THE FORCES, TODAY, NOT ONLY IN PEACEKEEPING ROLES … BUT WHO, IN A MOMENT’S NOTICE, ARE READY TO DEFEND OUR COUNTRY.

IT DOESN’T END THERE … IT’S A CHANCE TO SHARE THE STORIES OF PEOPLE LIKE LLOYD LEWIS, WHO MADE A POINT A MONTH AGO, HE WANTED TO VOICE
A REMEMBRANCE DAY SCRIPT IF I WAS GOING TO WRITE ONE.

LLOYD’S MILITARY CONNECTION COMES FROM GROWING UP AROUND MANY VETERANS FROM BOTH WORLD WARS IN THE TINY COMMUNITY OF FORT ASSINIBOINE ALBERTA … THEY HAD RETURNED TO THE AREA TO FARM.. AND THE LEGION WAS THE TOWN GATHERING PLACE.

A DISTINGUISHED TELEVISION CAREER CUED UP, WITH LLOYD LEAVING THE TV INDUSTRY IN 2015 AFTER A DECADE AS CTV EDMONTON VICE PRESIDENT AND GENERAL MANAGER.

LLOYD HAS A DEEP APPRECIATION OF THE MILITARY … AND, IT SHOWS … HE IS HON. LT. COLONEL OF 41 SIGNAL REGIMENT.  IT’S A COMMUNICATIONS UNIT IN THE CANADIAN ARMY RESERVE IN ALBERTA WITH SOLDIERS IN 3 SQUADRONS – EDMONTON, RED DEER AND CALGARY.

LLOYD’S EXTENSIVE COMMUNITY RESUME INCLUDES BEING ON THE BOARD OF THE ALBERTA CHAPTER OF THE CANADIAN FORCES LIASON COUNCIL.

SUCH PRESTIGIOUS POSITIONS COME WITH CHALLENGING RESPONSIBILITIES … AND, AT THIS TIME OF YEAR, LLOYD PROMOTES HONOURING OUR MILITARY HEROS.

WHICH BRINGS US BACK TO DON CHERRY WHO IS IN HOT WATER FOR HIS SATURDAY NIGHT COACHES CORNER COMMENT … CHERRY HAS A VOICE, AND, AT 85, HE COMES FROM A GENERATION THAT HAS DEEP RESPECT FOR THE OUR MILITARY.

CHERRY MADE ONE POINT WE CAN AGREE ON … MORE OF US SHOULD BUY POPPIES.  IT’S A SMALL AND COLLECTIVE ACT – AND THE VERY LEAST WE CAN DO.  AND TODAY AT 11, STOP FOR A MOMENT … BE SILENT, AND THINK ABOUT YOUR FREEDOM … OUR FREEDOM.

LEST WE FORGET.
THIS IS LLOYD LEWIS … AND I’M ON THE CREW
