“I am excited that our industry peers in Vancouver, with the support of Dan Fraser (Nettwerk Management), and in Montreal/Ottawa with the support of Rubin Fogel (Rubin Fogel Productions), Geneviève Côté (SOCAN) and Erin Benjamin (Music Canada Live), have taken on the challenge to run tournaments in these markets to increase the awareness of  Unison and help raise much needed funds to help those in our community who are in need of crisis  relief”, said Derrick Ross,  Chairman, Unison Benevolent Fund.


Tournament co-ordinator Brian Huston added: “We have had spectacular support from all facets of the entertainment industry, along with great partners in the business communities, who have allowed our Toronto tournament to be so successful. We know the same will happen in Vancouver and Montreal.  

"Our tournaments are designed to be fun social events for all levels of golfers, and we throw in some surprises throughout the day, so everyone has a chance to win prizes.”

Tanya Tagaq Plays a Pivotal Role in 'True Detective' Season Finale

The Inuk artist provides vocals for the HBO series' soundtrack, and her song "Submerged" scores a pivotal moment in the season finale, in which she appears as an actress.

The new season of True Detective wrapped up this weekend, and timed with the tense final episode, HBO also released the show's gripping soundtrack. Inuk artist Tanya Tagaq, one of the most celebrated contemporary musicians in Canada, contributed to seven songs on the soundtrack as well as making appearances in the show herself.

Subtitled Night Country, the fourth season of the HBO detective show takes place in the fictional town of Ennis, Alaska. It stars Jodie Foster and Kali Reis as Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro, two police officers trying to figure out how the recent bizarre deaths of six scientists are linked to the murder of Iñupiaq activist Annie Kowtok. Through its mystery framing, the show explores themes like colonial violence, environmental destruction, and missing and murdered Indigenous women.
