The very words that have, in a matter of weeks, changed the lives of our country and around the world.
There is a new reality out there. It is in the way we communicate and congregate, the way business is done. While I have every confidence we as Manitobans, and Canadians in general, will beat this thing everyday life will be affected from this day forward. I don’t see banks, grocery stores, buses, and dozens of other types of businesses taking down those plexiglass dividers they now have installed. I don’t see the term “social distancing” disappearing from our accepted language anytime soon, despite how quickly it entered it. To be honest, I find myself sometimes wishing I was in the hand sanitizer business rather than the boat business right now!
However, just as quickly as these “doomsday scenario” thoughts enter my mind I will take a pause, a deep breath, and take the time to think not of myself right now. (Our business, for now, has been surprisingly robust given the circumstance. That’s mainly due to the projected shortage we will have once current inventory sells, but after that who knows?)
No, for me now is not the time to focus on Graham Cameron. While I, like so many others, may experience a temporary monetary setback I realize what is most important here. My family is decidedly healthy and I prefer to focus on what I can do to assist others at this time. It can be in a series of calls you make each day to friends, especially ones who are alone, to check on their well being. It can be reaching out to a neighbor, in particular the older ones, even if they have not been a part of your circle in the past. It could mean volunteering at any number of places or perhaps donating blood. Any of these pursuits will uplift others, fill our days with purpose, and strengthen us mentally and that certainly will translate into improved physical well being.
We are Canadians, we have a long history of facing challenges and prevailing! God bless all those affected at this time and all admiration and prayers for those on the healthcare front lines on our behalf!
I will say in closing, if we must continue with social distancing there is probably no place more enjoyable to do so than on the water. If I can be of service in this regard be assured we will make the acquisition of a pontoon, fishing boat, or runabout as absolutely monetarily painless as possible at this time. Please contact us for a viewing appointment as we are stringently following guidelines on restricted contact.
It bears repeating, even after all these years;
For any of you that don’t know (and it’s probably the world’s worst kept secret) our most luxurious pontoons are built by one of North America’s most established and trusted builders. We simply “house brand” them at the request of other dealers who do not like our volume driven discount pricing.
They say quality is priceless but every now and then you can find that quality simply “priced-less!”
