For Calgary Hitmen d-man Keegan Kanzig, pickup trucks have made up a large part of his automotive history. “When I was young, I remember being pumped when my dad came home with a new Ram,” Kanzig, 20, says. Indeed, when you’re growing up in pickup country about 150 km North of Edmonton, you’re probably going…
She’s best known for her role as Amy Fleming on CBC TV’s hit drama, Heartland – a part that garnered her a coveted 2013 Canadian Screen Award.
