Tracy Parker: Blues-Berries Anyone?
I was born at the end of May 1965, during planting season on a tobacco farm in Southwestern Ontario’s snow belt, close to Lake Ontario.
My young years were idyllic—fun and play, both in Winter and Summer, with lots of room to roam. I have very fond memories of spending hours fishing with my dad. I started figure
skating when a nearby town built an arena and enjoyed years improving in that sport. I even have a couple of gold medals from competitions!
To finance my social life, I had the usual odd jobs after school and on weekends.
I attended college in Sarnia, Ontario, and left the day I finished to move out to British Columbia. My parents, my adventurous friend from college, and a very sick cat made the trip. Between blizzards
outside Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, that left us stranded on the Trans Canada Highway and a vehicle breakdown in Edson, Alberta, it was quite a journey. We arrived at our destination in northern British Columbia—Granisle, on beautiful Babine Lake—in early May 1984. There we discovered the best rainbow trout fishing ever!
