Great Meetings & Great Food

There were lots of great ideas discussed today when I had the opportunity to sit down with wrestling legend Tiger Jeet Singh, Jass Johal, Randeep, Inderpal and others. Thank you for your time and ideas to help improve Milton and the province of Ontario. 

Hope In High Heels Saturday September 17

Amidst the honks and waves in front of Troy’s Diner in downtown Milton today, I made my first attempt to try high heels. Now why would I be doing that you ask?


On Saturday September 17th I along with the great people at Halton Women’s Place will be hosting the first Hope In High Heels walk to support our local women’s shelter. For the last few years, there has been a super response to this walk in Burlington and Oakville and now we have it in Milton.

As you can see by this post by Nicole to my wife, I made some heads turn. I was doing a photo shoot for the Milton Canadian Champion for an upcoming story and people noticed what was going on so I do hope they take the time and register for the walk and raise money for Halton Women’s Place.

EID Mubarak

As the sun begins to set on another Ramadan celebration, Milton residents got together at the Thompson Arena tonight for the annual EID gala organized by Event Ontario with Ayesha & Naeem Tariq. 

Vendors from all over Milton showcasing their goods as well as henna painting, food and fun times for the kids. 

Thank you to the organizers who invited us to attend and take part in this celebration. So great to see so many friends attending each year. 

EID Mubarak to all those celebrating the end of Ramadan and best wishes to your families. 

Happy Canada Day Milton

The weather was a bit unpredictable this year but the love and passion for Canada was no surprise this year for Canada Day in Milton. 

It started off with the annual breakfast for the veterans put on by the local Knights of Columbus.  Pancakes, sausages and back bacon were a plenty as we honoured the veterans and remembered those who fought and didn’t return keeping our country safe and free. 

This was followed by the march into the fairgrounds with our vets which always brings a smile to our faces. Due to the weather we had to hurry back to town hall for the swearing in of new Canadians – including local Miltonians the Attew Family who took the oath of citizenship.

Milton MP Lisa Raitt and Mayor Gord Krantz were among the dignitaries in attendance to welcome our new Canadians in a very emotional ceremony.

There were always lots of activities for families and kids of all ages at the fairgrounds and the Milton Canada Day committee once again did an outstanding job. 

Fireworks always end off the celebration and once agin, they didn’t disappoint. 

Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy the celebrations and thanks to the volunteer committee and sponsors for making this happen. 

Happy Canada Day Milton. 

Strawberry Festival 2016

The 36th annual Starwberry Festival to support the Milton District Hospital Auxiliary was a total success. The weather was perfect and considering last years weather, we were due big time. 

There were so many activities at the festival for kids of all ages and we also had some special guests in attendance including Canada’s Most Famous Hockey Dad Walter Gretzky. 
Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Milton District Hospital Auxiliary who do so much for our community. 
Just one of the big events that makes Milton the best place in the world to live.
