My deepest condolences to all the Trudeau family. I’ll always remember how my children enjoyed when Bruce would come over and play with them and the little nicknames he had for his nieces and nephew, Christine, Rachel, Ashli and Kodi.

My condolences to the Biisnenh clan and all who loved him. I got to know of him via hockey when he played with the Hillbillies and local hockey league. I heard and could imagine his voice when he was asked to play over other local goalies for some tournament. "Me, I AM The Chosen One." I was able to relay that message to his wife at their wedding celebration at his family home on Neyaashing. I Congratulated them and her on being his "Chosen One." The Hillbillies had many victories due to his prowess in the net. I was impressed that he stopped drinking alcohol for a better quality of life. May he Rest In Peace
