A special collection of artifacts from a northern Manitoba hockey team made up of residential school survivors is headed to the Hockey Hall of Fame Museum in Toronto.
The items — including jerseys, banners and special memorabilia — from the Sagkeeng Oldtimers team are being donated by Darlene Ahmo, the daughter of team founder Walter Fontaine and manager Verna Fontaine.
“They had a dream of doing something really special for their lives and for the lives of other survivors. They had a lot of dedication, hard work and they made a lot of sacrifices,” Ahmo said.
