After graduating school in Heisler, he attended St. Anthony College, in Edmonton, a boarding school run by the Franciscan Friars of Western Canada. After graduating CP enrolled in the CA Program at the University of Alberta where he was introduced to Horse Racing Business Administration, a career he pursued for the next 35 years, mostly in Windsor, Ontario, and Winnipeg, Manitoba.
In retirement in Calgary, CP was active in the Catholic Church parishes they attended, serving on Committees and various ministries. Throughout his life, CP enjoyed all sports games and News Shows from around the world. His strength, generosity, and sense of humor will live with us always.
