Nelson mayor accepts ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Nelson John Dooley got a larger dousing than he bargained for this morning on Baker Street.

Nelson Mayor John Dooley accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge this morning in front of the John Ward Fine Coffee on Baker Street. Dooley wore an east coast fishing hat to help shed the icy water but the yellow slicker was no match for the surprise second and much larger bucket of water the mayor was doused with courtesy of the cafe staff.

Dooley then nominated Trail and Castlegar mayors Dieter Bogs and Lawrence Chernoff to complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
