Feb

Laurence Mathieu-Leger is an award-winning producer, director, and editor and the former senior video-producer at the Guardian US. Laurence specializes in documentary projects, and has worked with major networks and publications including The Guardian, Reuters, La Presse, Cosmo, and the United Nations. Laurence is the director and co-producer of ‘Willie’, a feature length documentary about the National Hockey League’s first African-American player, Willie O’Ree. The film was an official selection at the 2019 “HotDocs” Canadian International Documentary Film Festival. This is an extraordinary film about an extraordinary man. It’s a film that every school in the United States should be showing to it’s students. It is a film about passion and determination to succeed in life. It shows one man’s love of a sport, despite the racism he suffered during America’s apartheid years. Willie is a true American legend and hero.

The film is available throughout February on ESPN Streaming On Demand, and will have four airings on ESPN2, with a first TV broadcast on February 17th, 7:00pm ET. The following airings will take place on February 18th, 20th, and 24th.

OUR SHOW IS PRESENTED BY BEST AUTO TAGS

This week’s show is sponsored by a company I have worked with for many years and who bring peace of mind to my family and to me. They are a welcome sponsor who I endorse 100% for their services to the Philadelphia community. Best Auto Tags has been family owned and operated for exactly 70 years. Christopher Laughlin runs the business started by his father George, who returned from active duty in the S Pacific in WWII and in 1949 he opened Best Auto tags. George’s family originally from Ireland, fought in the US Civil War and WWI. And so The Laughlin’s have proudly served both their country and their neigbours in the communities in the Philadelphia area.

I use 2 locations, because I adore the teams working at both offices:

Ardmore, Pennsylvania  39 E Lancaster Ave Ardmore 610 896 6300

Paoli. Pennsylvania:  121 E Lancaster Avenue Paoli PA 119301 610 647 6600

Once you buy your car,  Best Auto Tags takes over for you, and offer an amazingly simple process which can be complicated for new resident to PA, from another state or another country. And complicated for PA residents as well!

And now the company is offering both car insurance and life insurance and the man to contact for that at C. G Laughlin & Associates Ltd Insurance Brokers Is Jim McKeon Executive Managing Agent at 484 318 7551
