they are on the job. “We want to thank them for their resilience in this effort to save lives
and to keep us all healthy,” said Delford Blythe, Founding Director and Station Manager
of G987FM’s parent company, Intercity Broadcasting Network Inc. “Working with our
corporate partner, Michel Germain Parfum Ltd, we are honoured to put some sweet
fragrance behind their mask for Christmas in the form of perfume gift sets.”

first time I’ve received a gift for my service. Thank you G987FM and the team for
thinking of us. It’s greatly appreciated,” said Valerie Rattray, Personal Support Worker.
In addition, as a special recognition, one lucky COVID Care Champion will also receive
$987, in cash, during the Mark & Jem morning show on December 24th.
