[b]I think the city should honour Mr. Williams by renaming Stadium Rd after him. We can't really rename the stadium, but we sure as hell can rename the road it's on. Perhaps ...
Henry GIZMO Williams Way, or Gizmo Williams Way
Wayne Gretzky put E-Town on the map, but what has he done for the city since 89 ? No disrespect to Gretz, but if he gets a road for winning 4 Cups in Edmonton, then why not honour someone who has done so much more than just help win us championships ?
Gizmo Williams is a tireless supporter of many charities in the City of Edmonton. He spends countless hours doing things with, and for the children of our city. Again, just a cpl weeks ago his pic was in The Sun...He was doing a habitat for humanity type building project. Every time you see him in the paper it's because he is supporting another charitable cause. His name has such drawing power. Just to lend his name, and nothing else, must be a huge boon to a charity. He doesn't just lend his name though. He gives of his own time, and sweat. Mr. Williams chose to make Edmonton his home. Since then he has done nothing but improve our community. The guy has done so much for charity. If we all did one percent of the charitable work this man has done. Edmonton would be a Utopia. If anyone out there thinks any other athlete has given back more to our community, I'd like to hear who it is...I'll tell you right now...You are not going to find one. In this day of pro athletes always only chasing the buck, and thinking only of themselves, this is our chance to honour someone special. After their careers are over many athletes fade away. Gizmo Williams has stayed at the forefront, and continued to give of himself.
He was a great Eskimo, an Eskimo great, and is an even greater man.
Ppl of Edmonton, and fans of the Giz everywhere...If you're with me on this let your voice be heard. Write letters to the City, and the newspapers. Call the radio talk shows. Get behind it, and we can make it happen.
