Bill's Viewpoint

“In a world preoccupied with the bizarre, the sensational and horrific,

William Roy “Bill” Brownridge is one of Canada’s most popular hockey artists and author of four Canadian classic children’s hockey books. The game of hockey – with emphasis on children’s enjoyment of playing this great game – has been a life-long inspiration for Bill.
