Dear Brothers and Sisters:

First, I wish to thank the membership of Local 71 for putting their faith in me and acclaiming me Business Manager for the next three years. You can be sure that I plan on meeting the challenges and responsibilities this Office presents. I have appointed Brent Payne as Assistant Business Manager to assist me in all my duties, Pierre Jodoin Business Agent in the Cornwall area and Marc Laframboise Business Agent in the Gatineau area. Ivan Adams will also remain Business Agent for CNL in Chalk River. Thank you brothers and sisters.

Thirdly, I would like to thank Michael Reid for all his years of devotion as Business Manager and I wish him a long and healthy retirement surrounded by his family. I would also like to thank Brother Richard Deneault for his years of dedicated service as Pension Trustees for Local 71 and Brothers François Tassé and Michael Crosbie for their many years of service as President and Vice-President. Your opinions and expertise were greatly appreciated.
