Peterborough-bred Brad Sinopoli was chosen Most Valuable Canadian after the Ottawa Redblacks dramatic 39-33 overtime victory in the Grey Cup game against the Calgary Stampeders on Sunday (November 27th).
An awesome photo (see below) of the Crestwood grad taken by Ottawa-based editorial and portrait photographer Ellen Bond—who hails from Peterborough—during the 2015 season will soon be housed at the Peterborough Sports Hall of Fame for the next four months.

Bond got the chance to shoot for the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) during the past couple seasons, and was on the field for every Ottawa Redblack game.
"Being from Peterborough, playing so many sports there—my dad Ernie and brother Eric also being deeply involved in athletics in Peterborough—and knowing all the photos out there of Brad Sinopoli....for them to want to display my photo is an honour," Bond tells PTBOCanada. "Maybe they did their research and knew Brad's dad, Sam, was one of my high school (Crestwood) hockey coaches....LOL. I am proud of that photo and happy more people in Peterborough will get to see it."
She also took this great photo below of Brad Sinopoli with his Dad Sam during the 2015 season...
