Interview & Photo Opportunity - White Rock Resident Wins $1,000 Shopping Spree with Figure Skating Legends Shae-Lynn Bourne and Victor Kraatz

    VANCOUVER, Jan. 17 /CNW/ - Olympic medalists and Canadian figure skating
legends Shae-Lynn Bourne and Victor Kraatz will help William Russell of White
Rock shop at the Cyclone Taylor Skate Store on Saturday morning. Mr. Russell
was the VIP prize winner of a local BMO branch contest held last December in
conjunction with the BMO Canadian Figure Skating Championships being held
January 16 - 20 at the PNE in Vancouver.
    A BMO Mosaik MasterCard, pre-loaded with $1,000, will help with the
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!"
    Bourne and Kraatz, Honorary Chairs, are ten-time Canadian Champions, and
2003 World Ice Dance Champions. They are inspirational role models for young
aspiring skaters and have represented Canada proudly in the sport of figure
