SANDY LAKE – The high point of a week-long joint training exercise by Canadian Rangers from four remote First Nations in Northwest Ontario was providing an escort for the Stanley Cup when it arrived in Sandy Lake First Nation on a surprise visit.
“I enjoyed the exercise,” said Ranger Harry McKay from Sachigo Lake. “There were a lot of new experiences to go along with it, but the big one was seeing the Stanley Cup. I’d never seen it before. We all got our photographs taken with it.”
“The Rangers provided an impressive snowmobile escort, they looked good,” said Warrant Officer Barry Borton, a Canadian Army instructor. “It was a huge experience for all of them and they did a great job.”
