What People Are Saying
"I cannot remember a performance that has impacted me as much as Jake’s Gift did. Moving, emotional, historical, proud, and oddly enough, funny. It was quite the day and reinforced how lucky we are and how thankful we need to be for all the sacrifices made."
— J. Finnie, Nanaimo
