Support Dave Comrie

At this year's Conference, we heard from Andy Kovacs of Sun Life on ways to protect ourselves from injury or illnesses. We heard that relying on your spouses insurance plans might not always work out.

David Comrie, one of your fellow members from Burlington had a heart attack Saturday, March 3. Luckily Dave survived but without adequate disability insurance, Dave is having to ignore Doctor's orders and return to work far too early.

Even a small donation from each member will assist Dave, and reduce the stress he is under. Here's to you Dave, hoping you make a full recovery and have a long and prosperous career ahead of you.
