Saddened to hear about the passing of Mr. Peter Cliche. My thoughts are with Maureen and her family. I knew Mr. Cliche when I was a teenager and a Cadet with the Pinawa Volunteer Fire Department. Mr. Cliche was really good to the young members of the Fire Department. An exceptional role model, intelligent, genuine well intended and kind hearted. He had more confidence in us kids than we had in ourselves at that time in our lives and that was huge for most of us. R.I.P. Peter and thanks for being such a positive influence for so many of the young people of Pinawa.
