Vancouver Canucks Song: Parody of Maroon 5’s “Sugar” – Sutter

The Vancouver Canucks turned over about one-third of their roster to start off the 2015-2016 NHL season.

Brandon Sutter, Brandon Prust, Matt Bartkowski, Adam Cracknell, and rookies Jared McCann, Ben Hutton, and Jake Virtanen all made the team.

So, of course, we decided to sing about it.

I’m joined by regular collaborators – the lovely and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao for our version of Maroon 5’s popular song “Sugar”.

Penguins, Planes, and the Proposal: The Story of Erwin and Alex

On October 3, 2015, my work colleague and friend Erwin married beautiful Alexandria in London, Ontario.  I was blessed to emcee the reception that evening, and as part of the program I presented the following story about Erwin and Alex:  their meeting, the courting period, their dating, and the proposal.


The story of Erwin and Alex begins in March 2013 when Erwin sat across from me (and 3 others) in a boardroom in downtown Vancouver. We asked questions and he did his best to answer them.

One month later he was living in Vancouver and working at a new job. For a really good looking boss.

As I mentioned earlier, Erwin and Alex met in Saskatoon in January 2014 when they were both there for some youth ministry gatherings that had some really long names.

NCLN Symposium: Without Exception

I’m thrilled to be in Toronto this weekend to speak at the annual Symposium for NCLN (National Campus Life Network).  I’ll be speaking on “The Top 10 Ways to Sustain Yourself and Your Team”.

Formed by students and for students, National Campus Life Network (NCLN) is the heart of the Pro-Life Student Movement in Canada. NCLN equips students to build a campus culture that respects and upholds the value and equality of all human life from fertilization to natural death; these students will in turn transform society, as they go on to lead in their future fields, careers, communities and families.

I’m looking forward to hearing from leaders and speakers in the pro-life movement and meeting students from across the country involved in this important work.
