This Guy Was The Mayor’s First Boss


T5Years ago, a young Christian Provenzano applied for a job at the Stel Hotel in Sault Ste. Marie and got it.

It was his first job. His manager was Troy Chandler.

25 years later, now Mayor Christian Provenzano helped with bringing awareness to a rare disease known as hydrocephalus or water on the brain.  He was there for his now friend, Troy Chandler.

Provenzano was joined by Ward 2 councillor Susan Myers and several others to take part in the fourth annual Troy’s Trail.

It’s that kind of support that means the world to Troy and Annette Chandler. The couple took it upon themselves to organize a yearly fundraiser and awareness campaign for  Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus in Sault Ste. Marie

Chandler was diagnosed with hydrocephalus in 1994, since then he has undergone 12 surgeries. Discovering their was no support group, he and his wife Annette began to research and then bring awareness to both   hydrocephalus and  joined the Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Association of Ontario.

Ironically, the Sault is one of the largest  walks in Ontario for the association.  The walk is staged at Clergue Park and the waterfront. All proceeds raised locally go to the provincial office.


The walk continues to get bigger each year.

Approximately 70 people took part in the walk under ideal conditions on the city’s waterfront Saturday.
