Member Statement: Congratulations to Bret Himmelmen


“Mr. Speaker, I’d like to recognize Bret Himmelman. Bret is a 19-year-old who began canoeing at 15 after his grandfather dropped him off at the Maskwa Aquatic Club, as a non-member, to stay in shape for hockey. He quickly fell in love with the sport and decided to train for it full time. Bret’s hard work and dedication paid off when he was chosen to represent Nova Scotia at the 2017 Canada Games in Winnipeg. Bret was rewarded for his hard work. He won two gold medals, won a bronze medal, and also had a fourth place. He has certainly made us proud in Hammonds Plains and in this province. I would like to ask all members of the House to please join me in congratulating Bret Himmelman on his success at the 2017 Canada Summer Games. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.”
