From 1985-1999 "The Canadian Achievers" was Canada's national network radio
program produced by, for, and about living Canadians. The series was broadcast
daily across Canada on over 150 of Canada's leading commercial radio stations...
It was consistently the most successful syndicated radio program in Canada
delivering 1.8 million adult impressions per week [source BBM]
Every day I shared with listeners the story of another living Canadian who was
achieving his or her goal in life. The emphasis was placed on human achievement,
focusing on Canadians from all walks of life and every corner of the country.
Canadian Achiever is dedicated entirely to demonstrating the proof that Canadians,
regardless of their field of endeavour, are reaching exciting goals and
achieving levels of success as great as or greater than anyone else.
If you are not a believer I invite you to read my self published, best selling
book "The Canadian Achievers". A collection of 151 stories taken from the
series. Over 60,000 copies were sold. In Canada a book becomes a best seller
once it sells 5,000 copies.
During the 15 years of the series run (1985- 1999) I enjoyed telling the stories
of over 3000 living Canadian Achievers. The series did not end because I ran out
of interesting stories to tell. I ended the series because the physical strain
of traveling to meet and interview achievers all across Canada. [An added
benefit for my wife Aline and I was that some interviews had to be conducted in
England, Florida, Barbados & California.] Adding to the strain of travel was the
emotional strain of writing and recording five new radio programs each week. As
exciting and rewarding as it was. All good things must come to an end.
The need continues..
We must keep reminding Canadians how this amazing land of opportunity is waiting
for those who wish to achieve. This is even more important to impress this upon young
people. They often wonder if they are coming on stream too late to achieve
their goals. Many believe that "all of the mountains have been climbed and
conquered" Canadian Achievers will show them, by example, that the opportunity to achieve in
Canada is unlimited.
