I just found out about Mike’s passing, that’s so sad. My sincere condolences to his family and loved ones. I met Mike in Whitehorse about 12 years ago. I’d come over to his place, we’d share a joint, have some coffee, play cribbage, watch Jays and Leafs games and talk about the news and politics. Even after I left the Yukon, he’d call me up every so often, and I him. I always enjoyed hearing from him. You will be missed Pounder, Rest In Peace old friend.
