Former CFL player and CAPS member Orlando Bowen shares his story in the W5/TSN investigation on CTV: Personal Foul – Nov 18, 2017

We’re thrilled to share media coverage of how our members are making a difference in their area of expertise. This week a special W5/TSN investigation looks at CAPS member Orlando Bowen, a former CFL player, who was arrested by police, assaulted and charged and then later acquitted. While the experience darkened his world, Rick Westhead reports how Bowen has offered forgiveness to the officers, and is encouraging others to seek the positive in their lives.

In Orlando’s words, “Imagine this…you get up everyday with purpose, you do your job, volunteer in the community and do all you can to make a difference while supporting your family, all is good. All of a sudden, in the blink of an eye, EVERYTHING shifts …you lose your career, your sense of reality changes and you begin to question many things you held to be true.”

We celebrate the resilience and positive attitude that has allowed Orlando to reach a point where he can now share with others what he learned and how to better their lives through it.
