Flora MacDonald

I found this image while going through old slides to scan. I encountered Flora MacDonald on the street in downtown Calgary during the 1988 Winter Olympics. She was the Minister of Communications at the time and was happy to take a moment to allow me to take her picture. After I found the slide, I looked her up and found that she had just passed away July 26, 2015. She was one of the few politicians that I have met that deserve respect, and a great Canadian.

Memories Of ‘88

Memories Of 88

The bright yellow with red stripes of the Canadian Ski Team was instantly recognizable to me. I almost didn’t have to look for the Calgary ‘88 logo on the bib. I was a little curious about it being in Banff at all, with Banff having been by passed for 1988 Winter Olympic venues. It did bring back many fond memories for me.
