Fill Your Boots with good feels.Rodeo is built on community. As a community, we not only celebrate our successes together, but we support each other when times get tough. At the Canadian Finals Rodeo, we are focused on giving back wherever we can, and this year we need your help!

With the weather getting colder and the days getting shorter, those without a home will face challenges this winter that many of us will never know. Socks are among the top requested items at housing shelters around the world, so we’ve partnered with our friends at The Mustard Seed to give back to the people who need it most. 

During CFR week, everyone can do their part by donating a pair of new, unused socks as part of our new Fill Your Boots initiative! CFR Ambassadors can help by holding space for a collection vessel in their business.

Branded socks, courtesy of Lammles, will also be available for purchase on-site at the Official CFR Merchandise Shop within the CFR Trade Show. Help us ensure the comfort of our community’s most vulnerable this winter! For more information and donation details, visit

Man faces second-degree murder charge in Calgary chef’s death in March

Published on

CALGARY — Police have charged a 26-year-old Calgary man in the death of a longtime chef during an attempted break-and-enter three months ago.

Anthony Archie Michel Christian is accused of second-degree murder and is to next appear in court on Monday.

Investigators have said 56-year-old Christophe Herblin responded to an alarm about 3 a.m. on March 14 at a cafe he was about to open.

Officers searched and cleared the area, but Herblin remained in a parking lot for three hours waiting for a contractor to arrive to secure the business.

Police say he was then attacked by three people who had returned to the scene.

Investigators are hoping to talk to two people, Fritz Chiefmoon and Kiara Leather of Calgary, who are believed to have more information about the case.

Herblin was an executive sous chef at the Glencoe Golf and Country Club in Calgary.

His new business, a French deli and cafe, was to open shortly after he was killed.
