Barb McBride works at the Steinbach Aquatic Centre. In Spring she entered the "Go Canada" contest to win a free Canadian trip. If she would have won, she would have brought her Sister-In-Law to Ottawa for the Canada 150 Remembrance Day Service. Barb didn't win the trip. But they decided to take the trip anyway.
Barb (Steinbach), Fran (Alberta) and Kim (Newfoundland) will have a picture of their Father pinned over their heart on the trip as they pay tribute to his service in the military.
Fran is also in the military and has recently fought a tough battle against breast cancer. She just finished her last treatment and tests show that she is currently cancer free.
They take this trip in honour of the battles fought for our country, the battle against breast cancer and the battle to keep family close
