Letter to the Editor - from Dennis Carnduff re: Brian Tokaruk's retirement

June 18, 2018

In August 2018 we wrote a story, “Half a Century and Some - A Tribute to Brian Tokaruk’s BMO Retirement” which can be found in our Archives.  We are pleased to share the following letter we recently received from one of his former colleagues, Dennis Carnduff.  Click here to read the original story.

“Wow!  50 years that must be a record, congratulations Brian and best wishes for the future.
We were just looking at a picture of Brian at my retirement party in Tisdale in 1992 . I later sold their house when he was moved to Regina. (I was working part-time selling real estate for a few years after retirement).
McKee Moving and storage (Mike and Joe Taylor) of Tisdale also moved us three times. It was nice to see a name from the past who has good news."

Dennis Carnduff

If you have any comments regarding this Letter to the Editor or perhaps a story of your own, please contact the BMO Cyber Pensioners News team at We look forward to hearing from you.

May 6, 2019

And a good time was had by all! Forty-four pensioners met at the Arbutus Ridge Golf and Satellite Bar & Grille on a beautiful sunny day and the views from the Grille were outstanding overlooking the golf course.

A hearty buffet lunch was served that included, soup, salad, assorted sandwiches and most importantly…………lots of cookies and squares for dessert! There were a lot of BMO swag available for the taking and there was also a display of archived Bank magazines dating back to the 40’s and carrying on into the 90’s. It is quite a collection and if anyone is interested in owning the collection please contact Connie Scheurer at for more details.

50-50 tickets were sold and a number of gift card raffles were held but the most enjoyable part of the lunch was the fellowship that ensued with all that attended. Everyone is now looking forward to our summer picnic in September!
