Brock Township Mayor Debbie Bath-Hadden recently had the opportunity to interview a pair of Sunderland residents ahead of their appearance on The Amazing Race Canada.
The seventh season of CTV’s summer hit debuts on July 2 and the field includes Gilles Miron and his grandson, Sean.
Gilles – a 65-year-old canoe instructor – counts determination, perseverance and his easy-going nature amongst his strengths, while 20-year-old Sean lists outdoor activities, physical challenges and problem-solving.
“Don’t be fooled by the age gap between Gilles and Sean – these men are both old souls. Gilles is friendly, adventurous, and a very active 65-year-old. He is a canoe instructor, a seven-year meditator, and a bit of a daredevil in his day. Sean’s birth changed his life. Gilles daughter was 16 when she had Sean, and Sean did not have a father in his life so Gilles decided to be a better example for Sean, and to be a good male role model,” reads a bio on the pair provided by CTV.
“Sean is outgoing, fun, and extremely caring. His grandfather’s influence has inspired him to be a better person and he is always willing to help people around him. He holds a second-degree black belt and dabbles in powerlifting. Sean loves outdoor activities, especially camping, canoeing, and snowboarding.”
The Amazing Race Canada airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on CTV.
