Show n' shine chairperson remembered as 'family-man' - High River TimesFriday, September 02, 2016
By Kevin Rushworth
An outpouring of support followed news of the death of High River’s Garret Broer, but his loved ones remember the happy-go-lucky family man’s love for vehicles and the selfless help he provided to others.
Garret, 50, passed away after a motorcycle accident outside Vulcan on Aug. 13.
While many knew him as the event chairperson for the River City Classics Car Club’s annual show ‘n shine, his brother Maurice regarded him as a person who brought others closer together.
“He was the glue of the family,” he said. “He held all kinds of people together, not just (our) family. If things were going wrong, something was up...he would always be there to make sure it was right.”
Garret’s main volunteer effort was through the High River car club, according to his other brother Andrew. It was his enthusiasm for cars and his 1966 Chevelle that made him proud to take part, he said.
After his passing, Andrew noted he will remember Garret for his assistance provided to others, either vehicle mechanics work or other handyman skills, and his great love for fam...

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion StandardWednesday, March 27, 2019
Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians.

It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
