Help wanted-

Marc Herpers is searching for the whereabouts of George McBurnie, a former CP Air & Canadian Airlines Employee. "George and I where good friends in the 80ies and 90ies. He visited our family in the Netherlands, as i visited him twice as he was then living in Ladner BC. Sadly we lost contact over the years. By searching the web I crossed your page and saw his name! I would be more than happy if you can help me out with any kind of information!"

Thank you in advance. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
