William Right - Executive Director
On August 14, 2016, I began the 22 day, 22 push up challenge organized by Wounded Warriors Canada. After completing it, it got me thinking about how I could contribute to assist our Soldiers who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Operational Stress Injuries through songs I composed. That fuelled my drive and determination to form “Brothers In Arms Band”, in November 2017 which led to me creating “Black and White Music Productions” on May 05 2019. I joined the Canadian Armed Forces Reserves in October 1995, where I am a Musician with the Regimental Band of the Governor General’s Horse Guards. I graduated with an Honours BA from the University of Toronto, and an MBA from Revans University. I received my music education from the Royal Conservatory of Music (Trumpet), the Humber College Jazz Program, and the Canadian Armed Forces School of Music. I am very proud of this Not for Profit Organization, and our Directors and I look forward to the good work we are doing to use music as means of raising funds, and awareness to assist our Soldiers who suffer from PTSD and OSIs through the recording and release of products such as my first music release, the extended play CD “Going Home” on January 19, 2018. We are also working on other music projects to assist to make a difference in the world with the release of my second music release “God’s Wonderland” on January 18, 2019, a 2 track extended play CD from my Musical “Black and White.”

Angie Right - IT Officer
Originally from Illinois (USA), I moved to Canada in 2012 to be with my husband. More than a decade ago, I got interested in WebPages and taught myself to code using HTML. My move to Canada made me realize that I needed to change my career, I was a caregiver in the States, so I attended Canadian Business College. My certificate is in Marketing and Digital Media. Graduating with honors, I decided to start a business helping others create graphics and WebPages, so I enrolled in Canadian Business College's Business Management Program. I am very proud of William and what he is doing for the military and wanted to be part of the organization.
