Riverview, N.B. resident Matthew Kinnie has always been very adventurous.

“Pretty active guy, I really like being outdoors and doing outdoor activities,” describes Kinnie. “Anything like skiing, rock climbing, or canoeing, hiking, backpacking and that, was all the stuff I like to do in my spare time."

But 14 years ago, Kinnie’s life took an unexpected turn when he was out rock climbing with friends.

“My hand slipped and I pulled an anchor from the wall, and before my rope could catch me, I had hit a ledge. So I kind of fell backwards and I landed on the back of my head and neck.”

He knew right away that his injuries were serious….

Celebrating With Our Residents: The comfort of home, in the company of friends

(January 23rd, 2017) – (Digby): Tideview Terrace Residents received a belated Christmas gift today with the arrival of a new wheelchair accessible van. Belliveau Motors, local Ford Dealership, delivered a 2016 Transit Connect XLT Wagon to a group of excited residents waiting by the front entrance. Malley Industries from Dieppe, New Brunswick partnered with Belliveau Motors to do the wheelchair conversion, resulting in a 5 passenger and one wheelchair vehicle.

Resident Judy McGarvey stated “It will be good for going to medical appointments outside of town.” Yvonne Speichts observed “You can see all around, even while seated in the back in your wheelchair.” Resident Council President Holly Manzer’s big smile said it all, ”It will be a more comfortable ride for everyone.”

“This new van replaces our 11 year old PT Cruiser. It offers our residents more flexibility in meeting their transportation needs now that we can accommodate a wheelchair”, says Administrator Debra Boudreau.

We at Malley Industries were delighted to be involved in this project.
