London, ON - April 9, 2014 - This weekend marks the 39th Annual Ontario Electrical Utility Hockey Tournament sponsored by Power Workersʼ Union and Real Clean Gear. The tournament is open to the public (free admission) and will be taking place at the Western Fair SportsPlex.
Beginning with only six teams, the first tournament was hosted by the Lambton Generating Station in Sarnia. Today, the tournament runs 112 games providing an opportunity for Electrical Utility Companies to participate in a weekend of hockey and renew friendships with other employees they have worked or grown up with. The top three teams from this tournament are invited to the Canadian Electric Hockey Tournament, an event that brings hockey teams from across Canada to a different province each year.
ʺEach year we choose a volunteer charity that helps underprivileged young children participate in sports programs,ʺ says Mike McElwain, tournament director. ʺKidSport has proven to be a huge help with our plans for the tournament, and we know their good work will be further enhanced by any monies raised. ʺ The tournament with support by the Power Workersʼ Union, is aiming to raise $10,000 for KidSport London, a local chapter dedicated to raising funds and helping children in the community gain access to organized sport.
There are 62 teams participating from across Ontario including Windsor, Sarnia, North Bay, Sudbury, Ottawa, Kingston and all spots in between representing approximately 12 different utility companies.

LONDON, ON. November 5, 2013. There’s a history in London that many may not know about. Well, that’s about to change with the documentary, The Light at the End of the Tunnel, being filmed by local filmmakers Steve Charles and Mark Drewe. Focusing on local residents of the 1800s, the documentary will unearth how London came to be the multicultural and vibrant city it is today.
On Friday November 15th at 7pm a fundraiser called Corks & Kegs will be taking place to not only inform guests of the project, but to also raise funds for both the documentary as well as the African Methodist Episcopal Church which is needing to relocate its premises. “The film is a deep, personal journey into the stories of some of the first minority settlers to the area and impact they had on the ideals of Canadian multiculturalism,” commented Charles and Drewe, the film’s co-directors and co-producers.
The beer and wine tasting event will be held at the Downtown Yoga Studio located at 236 Dundas Street featuring two floors of delicious food prepared by Organics on the Move, specially selected beer and wine supplied by Railway City Brewing Co and Quai du Vin Estate Winery, respectively, as well as plenty of displays for guests to interact with. “Corks and Kegs [the event] is a kick-off party so the party can learn about the film’s message while having fun and supporting the community,” says Drewe. Special guests will be on hand to speak at the event.
Tickets for the November 15th Corks & Kegs event are available now for $45 through the documentary website or at one of the participating sites. For more information about the documentary, the event and tickets please visit www.thelightdoc.ca.
