while attending university. He was even featured on the cover of the University of Manitoba’s Alumni magazine. James, his wife and two sons reside in

Las Vegas. I assume that since he has been away for so long, he was not listed, even though he has accomplished more than most. Brian Barclay, CJOB, has been on one of the Holland America Cruises that James performed on. For more interesting information you can visit or Tis is just to update your information. You were our Member of Parliament at the time with an extremely busy schedule. Georgina Cielen, Winnipeg

So sorry to overlook this, Georgina. We will make a note to carry your letter in the winter issue of Te Hub. I feel really bad about the oversight. I thought I had caught all of the significant magicians. Best regards, Dorothy Dobbie
