Another great mentor was Grant Nicurity. He had a trusting relationship with the media when I started he respectfully asked them to wait till I was done training and then he prepared me for the media when I graduated.
Whenever I was deciding to take on an issue we would meet and walk through whether it was worth the battle. He knew all the players. He wasn't afraid to show his support to me in front of coworkers. He was intuitive, perceptive and kind during times where it was hard to find a friend at work. Lt Marianne Boychuk
