Blue Jays: Jamie Campbell exemplifying what it means to be Canadian
The host of Blue Jays Central’ Jamie Campbell is going above and beyond the call of duty, all the while exemplifying what it means to be Canadian.
Jamie Campbell is best known for being the face of Blue Jays Central on Sportsnet, a personable approachable figure in the baseball community north of the border. However, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, Campbell has rolled up his sleeves and gone to work to make this uncertain troubling time better for all those involved.
The TV personality has become involved with the “Conquer Covid-19” initiative which is spearheading the collection and delivery of Personal Protection Equipment to frontline workers all across the country.
Campbell recently made the eight-hour trek north to Timmins to deliver a stockpile of N-95 masks to emergency service workers. He also made stops in North Bay and Sudbury before returning home. I am originally from northern Ontario and have personally lived in Timmins and can with the utmost confidence confirm it is not exactly the shortest of drives from Toronto up Highway 11.

Today on his social media, Campbell was taking Tim Hortons coffee orders for frontline workers in Perth and then personally delivering the hot beverages. These random acts of kindness go a long way in a time of need like we are currently facing.
Prior to this, Campbell was personally telephoning Blue Jays fans to offer some encouragement and brighten spirits during the pandemic. Campbell even enlisted the services of Buck Martinez to assist with the phone calls.
The unexpected friendly conversations undoubtedly eased the minds of some of our older folk who have been sequestered to their homes for fear of catching the Coronavirus.
You always got the feeling that Jamie Campbell was a proud Canuck during his many trips on the Blue Jays winter caravans to various cities and towns throughout the country. However, what he has done during this uncertain time and the impact he has had on numerous Canadians is undeniable.
Mr. Campbell, you a definitely the salt of the earth and as a fellow Canadian, passionate Blue Jays fan and emergency services worker, I genuinely thank you for your thoughtfulness and contribution to the cause. Well done !!!
