Out-of-work derelicts who have been deemed unemployable due to a lack of marketable skills are given an opportunity to work again. Note: Gerber himself is not actually involved in this charity; it's named after him because he was the program's first recipient.
Guess what? As long as MLSE has a huge marketing tie-in with Rogers (and we have the mini-basketball to prove it), it's MLSE's problem too.

A wise man said it: If Larry Mavety survives in Kingston, the OHL won't.

- Jody O'Neill, a goalie for Dartmouth who played in the Central Junior Hockey League, was named rookie of the year in the ECAC.
