Working as a mascot has been checked off Vanessa’s bucket list! This weekend she was the CHEO Bear at a corporate summer event.

Advice she'd like to pass on:  If anyone’s planning on doing a gig like the one, bring some febreeze, make sure your dancing spirit’s on, and be ready to be hug-attacked by kids! Also, you’ll need to have someone to hold your hand to get you to different places… visibility is a real challenge with that bear head on...


Row Team
July 31 2015

Vanessa and Diane of Affinity had their last Adult Rowing League (ARL) race of the season last night at the Ottawa Rowing Club. These two members of the Royal Blue, oar should we say Row-yal Blue team, won an overall 2nd place! Only a few crabs were caught during practice but we'll leave that rowing lingo to the rowers... Have a happy and safe long weekend y'all!

They’re nice kids but they play hooligans for the b-roll in Affinity’s video for the Minister of Justice National Youth Justice Policing Awards.  That’s a real cop er… Constable.  Thanks to RCMP Constable Francis Jacob, Ottawa Police Service Constable Cory McAree, and hooligan liaison Jaylen Gordon.  Written and directed by Katie Tallo, DOP Karl Roeder and grip/camera asst. Lewis Hill.

No teens were hurt in the filming of this video.
