Montreal Celebrity - Tommy Lemaire-Ouellet

Sylvain Ouellet is a Quebec certified specialist who is qualified in the removal of oil tanks. Last Wednesday, he and his thirteen year old son (summer help) were at our house to remove our old tank. Young Tommy was basically there to observe and learn the ropes of the trade from his Dad. I was chatting with him and learned that he was really into Kart racing... has been since the age of eleven. He has trained hard and has been very active in the competition circuit. Apparently, he has already won several championships in the sport and is currently, a hopeful to win the "Junior" title in the 2011 Eastern Canadian Karting Championship. Bonne chance, Tommy Lemaire-Ouellet!

He's not only becoming a champ but with the help of his father's he's learning some other valuable lessons, too. Such a nice family father-son portrait.
