Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate CISN radio in Edmonton. CISN radio has been a pillar of support in our community, contributing to numerous charitable and local projects.
Among the many honours it has received were the president's award from CORUS Entertainment, and afternoon DJ Chris Scheetz's nomination for “on air personality of the year” from the Canadian Country Music Association.
The crowning achievement was the awarding of the Canadian Country Music Station of the Year.
For the community, Chris Scheetz lived in a tractor for five days to raise over $103,000 for struggling farm families. CSIN's efforts with the “Mad Dash to the Border” rallied Canadians to support Alberta's beef industry.
Most recently, CISN raised over a million dollars during a radiothon for Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation.
I am proud CISN FM is located in Edmonton. I congratulate the station on a very successful year.
The next time members are in Edmonton I ask them to remember to turn their radio dial to 103.9 FM.
