CALGARY , Sept. 13, 2015 /CNW/ – Scott Brash and his horse Hello Sanctos won the Canadian Pacific (CP) International, while helping to raise $150,000 through CP’s Clear Rounds for Heart initiative.

Great Britain’s Brash had two clear rounds and CP ambassador and Canadian legend, Ian Millar had one. CP also raised an additional $5,000 through the CP Has Heart Fun Run for a grand total of $155,000 – all of which will benefit Alberta kids. “CP is honoured to have the ability to work alongside incredible organizations like Alberta Children’s Hospital and Spruce Meadows, so that we can continue to make important charitable contributions like this,” said Keith Creel , CP President and Chief Operating Officer. “I’d like to congratulate the Southern family on 40 years of show jumping excellence. We are honoured to be the title sponsor of the CP Grand Prix and the CP International at this world-class facility.” Throughout Masters weekend, families showed heart as CP hosted a range of events on site for everyone to take part in, like CP’s mini-trains the Little General and Puffer Belly Express and the Canadian Pacific Spike Driving Championship Finals.

George Will: Redeeming and reintegrating the remainder of a life | Deseret News
“Ex-offenders,” he says, “are more credible” as teachers. He finished college while serving 17 years, some of them here, for accessory to murder. Until recently, released prisoners were sent home, if there still was such a place, wearing gray sweatshirts and sweatpants. Now, a nearby house, once abandoned, overflows, thanks to local churches, with donated clothes suitable for job interviews. “I didn’t know how to get dressed anymore,” said a departing inmate. “I hadn’t been dressed for 20 years.” The church volunteer (asked who provides these clothes, she crisply says, “God does”) who helps run the house says released prisoners would apply for a construction job and be told, “You’re hired now go buy some boots.” But steel-tipped work boots can cost $150. So each leaving prisoner gets a pair. America, with less than 5 percent of the world’s population, has almost 25 percent of the world’s prisoners. Mohr cannot change the overcriminalization of American life that has been accompanied by unreasonably severe sentences. But a new pair of work boots can help soften the effect of mass incarceration. The crimes that earned the men here their punishment violated America’s standards of decency.
