Brampton - Ron Wicks, former NHL referee, will be at the Peel Heritage Complex (PHC) on Monday, Feb. 15 from 1-3 p.m. to sign his new book, A Referee's Life.

Wicks – a Brampton local – pulls no punches in a memoir about his 25-year career of rubbing shoulders with hockey legends like Howe, Hull, Orr, Lemieux and Gretzky. Wicks candidly talks about his fellow officials, his relationship with the players, coaches, general managers and club owners. 

"For Heritage Day 2010, the Heritage Canada Foundation celebrates the heritage of sport and recreation," said Brian Gilchrist, Reference Archivist. "Ron's book signing and the All Dressed Up With Somewhere To Go exhibition honour the legacy of sport in building community involvement."

As part of Heritage Day celebrations, visit Peel Heritage Complex for free on Sunday, Feb. 14 and Monday, Feb. 15 (also Family Day) from noon – 4:30 p.m.

Heritage Day was established in 1973 by the Heritage Canada Foundation, and is celebrated the third Monday of February to encourage the preservation and promotion of Canada's nationally significant historic, architectural, natural and scenic heritage. In 2010, Heritage Day is Feb. 15.
