Check out this episode where former QMJHL enforcer Nathan Veinot and I reminisce about some of the good old days with the Cape Breton Eagles. Nathan is the follow up guest to Dr. Nikole MacLellan who recommended him as the next guest for the podcast.
Throughout the conversation and amongst the laughs of this spitting chiclets style episode, you can see the Nathan's resilience. From a small town in the Annapolis Valley, he ended up playing Major Junior hockey quite literally fighting his way through that career against some of the biggest heavyweights of that era despite being a middleweight size himself.
One key message that might just pass the listener was when he mentioned that he would always get back up when he got knocked down. That continued for him as he wandered into the workforce eventually becoming an Engineer on the trains, and his eventual run in with the COVID environment and regulations. It was a great time catching up with him on this episode. We shared some great laughs and stories here.
Please pay special attention to his message about train safety as these accidents are nearly 100% preventable.
Please watch this PSA on Train Safety and how your actions may affect the person driving the train.
Of course after all that chatter, one does need to have a look at Nathan in action back in the day!
