Peter Love “I used to be a runner, and I smoked in my youth. All of a sudden in 2006 I was getting a bit dizzy and I didn’t know what was going on — and I found out I had atrial fibrillation.” Peter Love found himself in a situation he was unaccustomed to: “I hadn’t been in a hospital in forever, not since my wife was delivering our kids. It was a real eye opener.” Peter was not the first person in his family to experience heart disease and stroke, or the last. His grandfather — who founded the family business in Calgary 113 years ago — passed away from stroke. His father had a stroke and recovered, and his brother had bypass surgery in 2009. Peter had to undergo four complex surgeries to treat AFib as well as atrial flutter (two forms of rapid heartbeat known as tachycardia), and also a hole that went between two chambers of his heart. It was his own experience as well as his family connection that inspired the third-generation business owner (whose company, Cask Global Canning Solutions, will soon be run by a fourth generation) to give back. “We just wanted to say ‘Thank you very much,’” Peter says. “And that’s why we continue to give to Heart & Stroke.”
