    The Eastern Commerce Jr. Saints will finish the year with a tournament in Nova Scotia from April 15 to April 21. Over March break, Eastern hosted the North Preston Bulls team. While in Toronto, the teams played in the Eastern Commerce one day tournament and North Preston played an exhibition game against John Innis.

    This exchange allows young men to compete in the game of basketball and grow as individuals from interaction with teens in other parts of the country.

    The team and coaches had a great time with the Nova Scotia group and are looking forward to some wonderful Maritime hospitality. I would just like to publicly thanks East Metro Youth Services, East Scar. Boys and Girls Club, Seneca Residence, Yonge Street Mission, Karim Grant and all the parents who helped to make this a successful exchange.

    I would like to congratulate the Eastern Commerce junior team on winning the North Preston tournament. The team faced the home team in the finals and came out with a 5 point victory. Daniel Robinson was named tournament MVP.

    I would like to thank the North Preston Bulls organization and the people of North Preston for making this a tremendous exchange. A big thanks to Dean, Puddy and all the parents who made sure we were well taken care of. Also Karim Grant, Eastern Commerce assistant coach who work hard to put this together.

    Thanks to Simon Farine, Robert Nortmann and Galan Enlow who gave us a great tour of Dalhousie, the people of the Saint Thomas United Baptist Church who welcomed us for a uplifting Sunday service, Highland Farms for a great afternoon (the mechanical bull is not easy to ride), and the kids who have made life long connections with the kids from Eastern Commerce. We will be back to visit soon!!!
