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.

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…

It’s often said, “You can’t know where we’re going if you don’t know where we came from.” Many have the belief Fort McMurray was built for the oil sands. It wasn’t. This area has a long, rich history as a trading post, where traffic on local waterways rivalled that on…

There is an old saying that you never know a man until you share his bed. But even after that, you can sometimes still never know him. Two weeks to the day before Christmas of 2012, I came home to find the man I thought I was going to marry…

ONCE UPON A TIME, AN URBAN MYTH WAS spread by eager gossips telling the tale of what was to blame for no local blood donor clinics. That tale, they would whisper, is no such clinics were held in Fort McMurray because it was such a hot bed for sexually transmitted…
