Douglas Ollie


Douglas Ollie is a hockey player from Arviat, a community in the central Kivalliq region of Nunavut (see, I told you about those people from the Kiv and their love of the puck). His AWG's were cut short, by taking a shot on his ankle during hockey. He is staying positive.

Douglas tells us a little about the town of Arviat, and along with hockey, they love Bingo.

Hello our son Douglas,
WE love you so much and so proud of you. Keep up being positive, and enjoy life;
About Bingo, it's played every where not only in Arviat. And he shouldn't have asked you that question because it doesn't refer to what you do or what we do. Don't feel bad about it though.
We miss you lots especially from irngut & ummat, and JC.
Gleason & Billy are so proud of you to and they're glad that you used to be a goalie when playing street hockey; And we thank God for you.
Love from Dad & Mom

You are right, Douglas shouldn't feel bad about his answer... Douglas answered an honest question honestly. He handled himself with class, and you have every right to be pround of him.
