A little about CAROL CHRISTIAN

One of those people who arrived in Fort McMurray for a short time – six months - but eight years later is still here. Love this place, the people, the outdoor escapades and the incredible heart of the community. Work hard, volunteer lots and would rather sit and chat with someone than do housework. Passport always at the ready to jet off to some wonderful global locale. So much to see and do.

Whether 80 years ago, 50, 20 or just yesterday, MacDonald Island has been a place for families and friends to gather. Fort McMurray has a rich history of intrepid and tenacious pioneers and they include those families who once upon a time called MacDonald Island home. But who is the…

The flashing amber lights are a beacon. A signal to those who call the streets home, beckoning them over for a warm drink, possibly a homemade sandwich, maybe a new pair of warm socks, but definitely for a smile and caring word. For Cathy Harnum-Flynn, “It’s not a cup of…

We’ve all seen them. The lead-foots, usually driving pick-ups, who think the rules of the road are for everyone else but them. We cringe and curse them as we watch them slaloming in and out of traffic regardless of double solid yellow lines, hills, treacherous road conditions or looming oncoming…
