 Toronto Maple Sikhs Polar Bear Dip 2011

They say when it’s New Years day, the Polar Bears come out and play. Well, this year was no exception, as mighty brave Singhs and Kaurs represented the Toronto Maple Sikhs at the Toronto Polar Bear Dip on Jan 1, 2011 in the frigid cold waters of Lake Ontario.

Bleeding Maple Leaf blue, the team had three goals, the first goal was to have more participants on the team this year and that was easily achieved when we more than doubled the size of our team to 24 dippers; the second goal was to have women participate and we had 6 Kaurageous ladies take the dip, they include Mandip Kaur Sandher, Swaranjit Kaur Sandher, Harmeet Kaur Rai, Amarjit Kaur Dhadda, Ramann Kaur Patara, and Kiran Kaur Rai; and finally the most important goal was to be the top fundraising team, and we more than achieved that by raising over $7000 in support of Habitat for Humanity Toronto to help raise funds to build affordable housing in Toronto for families living in need. In fact, we have raised over $10 000 the past two years in support of this worthy cause.

  Bring the British North America Act back to Canada for display

is national, grassroots movement launched by a group of Canadians from all walks of life. It is asking Canadians to support a petition to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the British government to return to Canada the British North America Act – Canada’s *original* Constitution – in time for its 150th anniversary celebrations in Charlottetown 2014, and Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017.

The campaign is the brainchild of Lori Abittan, President and CEO of Multimedia Nova Corporation. Her 52-week Canadian civic literacy/history series The Canadian Experience (http://www.cdnexperience.ca) now running in over 70 multicultural publications (including the Oye Times!), was the inspiration to launch BringBackTheAct.ca to invite all Canadians to help gain access to the basic documents which are the foundation of our nationhood. To enable such historical documents to be entrusted to the Canadian Government and displayed for all Canadians to see will represent the last step Canada takes to finally ‘repatriate’ our Constitution.

Click HERE to sign the petition. It only takes one minute.
