THE ‘BURNABY JOE’ REGISTERED PHARMACY TECHNICIAN ROLE ($24 – $26 / HOUR)

Colorado Avalanche v Vancouver Canucks

In around 1973 … Croatian immigrants, Marijan & Slavica of Burnaby, BC handed their son a hockey stick and strapped a pair of ice skates on his feet.

At the time … no one could ever have imagined what series of events were being set in motion and that years later …. their son would affectionately be known as ‘Burnaby Joe’ by the locals!

Long story short … Joe Sakic would go on to rocket through junior hockey and have an NHL career that would cement his legacy in the sport.
‘Super Joe’ represented Canada in the Olympics, earned numerous awards and was instrumental in hoisting Lord Stanley’s Cup for the Colorado Avalanche – twice!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s current role?
Well … nothing really.
That said … this role is located in Burnaby … so there’s your connection … (albeit a small one)!
