HEATHER

More comfortable working tirelessly behind the scenes, Heather Truemner takes a moment to chat with the Hello Project. She is one of many residents of Bala, a small town in Muskoka who are fighting against the construction of a proposed hydro plant at the falls. The Bala falls are beautiful, and a draw for tens of thousands of visitors annually. 

Born in Kitchener, Ontario, Heather and her husband now split their time living at home in London, Ontario for six months, and in Bala for six months. Retired now, Heather spent 25 years as an elementary school teacher teaching grades 4-6.

Passionate about the outdoors, Heather loves hiking, wilderness camping, canoe tripping and swimming. She always has swimming fins with her in the car - for those moments where she feels like a fish out of water! "You never know where a swimming opportunity might come up," she says laughing.

HEATHER FUN FACT: Once while bringing in the dock for the season, Heather swam across Bala Bay and back, a distance of about two kilometres with her husband paddling behind her. Even today, she still enjoys a good hearty lake swim when out canoe tripping.
