What comes to mind when one thinks of a Canadian? Aside from the common thought that we all tredge through snow 12 months of the year for our must-have Timmies coffee, and saying “sorry” to everyone we pass, the Canadian identity primarily revolves around multiculturalism, peace, and of course… HOCKEY!
Each year, the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup, a Canadian charitable initiative, seeks to teach young hockey players the immeasurable value of good deeds. Youth teams are encouraged to utilize the skills and values instilled in them by their sport to give back to those in need, and finalists can collect votes for the chance to win $100,000 for their community!
This year, the Mississauga Terriers Peewee AA team, which is proudly coached by a dear friend of Accurate (Peel) Appraisals’ owners, Karin and Thomas Bremner, is one of 10 finalists. These kindhearted young players reinforced prime Canadian values in their deeds, which included spending 2 months collecting equipment for, sizing, and teaching several new immigrant/refugee children of various ages how to skate and play hockey!
We recommend taking a moment to place a vote for the team of your choice, so that a deserving group of admirable youth can give back to their community! Please note, voting ends February 9th!
