Côte Saint-Luc names library sports book section after Red Fisher

Côte Saint-Luc City Council  has formally honoured legendary hockey writer Red Fisher. During a private ceremonyon September 24,  attended by Mayor Anthony Housefather, members of city council and some senior staff,  we officially named the sports section in the non-fiction part of our Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library  after  Red.

 This includes all the books on sports, from hockey to baseball, golf, soccer, etc. The section is quite large and comprises six shelving sections each having six rows.   Red, a long time CSL resident, was on hand to help us unveil the plaque, which sits  in the middle of the section at the top. “I have lived in Côte Saint-Luc for 56 years and I spend a lot of time at this library,” he acknowledged. “I am flattered by this honour.”

Red just recently retired from his extraordinary  58 year career covering the Montreal Canadiens,  during which time he won  three Canadian National Newspaper Awards and the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award for distinguished hockey writing from the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1985.

 Because Red is such a regular at our library, Mayor Housefather ,  Councillor Sam Goldbloom  and(responsible for the library) and Councillor Allan J. Levine (Red is his constituent)  agreed with my suggestion that we recognize him in such a way. Thanks to Director of Library Services Janine West for coordinating everything.

 Copies of Hockey Heroes and Me, a book Red wrote, is indeed part of our  sports collection.  I asked Red if he really is retired, given his recent series in The Montreal Gazette about the 1972 Canada-Russia series. He assured me that this is a one-time thing. Having just turned 86, he wants to take it easy.   That being said, he still has a computer and communicates by email.

 “Hey Red, I would love to see you start a blog,” I suggested.

 “No way Mike,” he responded. “I am retired!”

 Well if anything who deserves a break from the business, it is Red.

I simply bought into the hype of the ad and purchased this overpriced product without any thought of side effects or anything else. She mentioned the importance of this in weight reduction because lean muscle burns 50 calories per pound whereas fat only burns 3 calories. In addition, these residents have understood the various health benefits of this fruit.
