Bo Hedges, captain of Team Canada was in town for a wheelchair basketball event in his honour.

Hedges and Team Canada played hard and finished eighth at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. At the Rio 2016 Games, Canada finished eleventh.

Hedges gave a demonstration of the sport to the students on October 13, ‘teaching’ the teachers at an assembly. To make things even more interesting, a pair of local production companies have teamed up to make a documentary feature film about Bo and his journey from Fort St. John to Tokyo. For more information on the documentary, see our article here.
