Candy headlined the Entertainment night for the Mi’Kmaq Summer Games 2014 in Potlotek First Nation. Opening for her was Don Burnstick and another local upcoming comedian, with Candy’s set on after the family fireworks. The night was stellar and a rare treat as many witness Candy’s Corporate comedy, but this late night show was her blue comedy. The organizers planned the event to provide a mix mash of variety for the audience.

Candy has traveled to Moose Cree First Nation for comedy performance and to Wikwemikong Unceded First nation for motivational, inspirational keynote speeches, on Manitoulin Island. Beautiful place to visit.

Candy hosted the Industry Award Night presented by RBC, the Ohshki Awards – the same night her category was announced and she won. The Nationally Televised Award night, Candy was the presenter for Song of The Year, and had a stroll down the red carpet with her well earned Award. The two nights were filled with the best talent in Canada, what we call Red Hollywood, for Aboriginal people, and with guests from all across the world to attend, perform and receive awards. What a great couple of nights in Winnipeg!

NOW, Candy is back on APTN National News for the Laughing Drum segment, every other Tuesday nights,  and she accepted a position to teach the  Native Studies Course at Dalhousie University in Halifax, once a week.  Still being able to travel all over the globe for events, comedy shows, and speaking to youth, educators, Unions, Corporations and Government – sending messages on love, inclusion, motivation, inspiration and more.
