It’s a long way from Cal­gary, Al­berta where E J was born, but he says the trip was worth it. “ I spent three long years in that big cat­tle town, but when you’re that age change time means lit­tle,” he said, laugh­ing. “ I’ve had steady work down here and for the last ten years I have built pal­lets for Source-Wood Prod­ucts which is sit­u­ated in the old cot­ton mill.”

E J played bas­ket­ball dur­ing his ten­ure at CCVS, but ad­mit­ted he wasn’t at­ten­tive enough to make the trav­el­ling team. “ It’s a great game, but I had too many other dis­trac­tions to re­ally buckle down,” he ex­plained.

Granger said that al­though he was not ex­ces­sively en­vi­ron­men­tally con­scious, his con­tri­bu­tion to its im­prove­ment rested in the fact that he does not drive nor own a car. “ My old eigh­teen-speed bike gets me to where I want to go around Corn­wall,” he of­fered. “ I don’t even need an ‘ E’ test.

“ My long­est road trip was to Alexan­dria, but that was a lit­tle too far. Never again!”

EJ is sin­gle and be­lieves in liv­ing one day at a time.
