George Dalgleish

You may recall watching his local tv show about home renovations in the 70s (and 80s?.)

Death pool? How classy.

He was a fixture on Winnipeg tv, I can't recall which network. But he had a terriffic home-handyman show that sort of preceded the home renovations craze. Think about how popular Mr. Chips was, or even the big US show, This Old House.

CKND. I remember because I cursed his name as a child, whenever his show preempted Bugs Bunny at 6pm on Saturdays in the late 70s and early 80s.

If I remember correctly, he also had a column in the Winnipeg Real Estate News around the same time.

Rest in Peace, George.
