Quotes

"Just getting the word out there, it would be wonderful if we could raise one dollar for every Okotokian. That's $27,000 dollars to help out your friend, help out a family member, you never know."
"What he said is just imagine if every person in Canada donated one dollar, how much money we'd have. So in Okotoks that would be, what are we at 27,000 now? So, that would be a good goal. I doubt we'll reach it but one day I hope to!"
He says they'll have to be patient, "You've got to wait until your moisture levels are right again before you can start harvesting again, so we just need some cooperation from Mother Nature, she gave us a knockout blow, but we're getting off the mat so it'll take some time but we've got lots of time left so we'll eventually get it done, it'll just take a little bit longer than the last few years that's all."
