The Hester family inspires community

1451446_10151903715128612_306532064_n(1).JPGToday on All in a Weekend, we met a family that's particularly devoted to hockey. The Hesters live in the Cree community of Waskaganish, in Northern Quebec. There are eight boys in the Hester family, and their success on the ice has inspired the Cree Nation to think big when it comes to hockey dreams.

CBC North's Betsy Longchap went up to Waskaganish recently, listen back to her report.
