shopping spree and is just one component of the prize that William Russell, a
naturopathic physician, was awarded. His VIP prize package from BMO includes
two tickets to attend Friday's 2008 BMO Canadian Championships, seated with
Bourne and Kraatz; and an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour.
Mr. Russell expressed enthusiasm for his VIP prize package win, saying,
"I plan on taking my wife Lora on the shopping spree and maybe Shae-Lynn and
Victor can give me some figure skating tips so I can perform some great moves
to score more goals on my Langley men's hockey league team!"
