Al Mc Gregor

Biography:
With a laugh as big as the Yukon, it seemed nothing could bring down Big Al McGregor. But last season, a diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma, a rare blood cancer, and the death of his beloved wife Colleen within a few months of each other last season dropped the gregarious Alberta miner to his knees. Robbed of sensation in his hands and feet, Al has gone from a hospital bed to a wheelchair. But that’s not stopping him. Determined to honour Colleen’s memory and their dream of retirement at the mine site on Indian River, Big Al has fought his way back. He has returned to the Yukon, driven by a desire to make the mine profitable once again. Together with his aide Tamsin and his small crew led by right-hand man Hiro, Big Al hopes to find peace, regain his strength and finally hit the mother lode.
