On Monday night hundreds of people lined up near the Sandman Inn as the stars of Heartland stopped in Cranbrook for an often times intimate photo signing and picture taking event. Amber Marshall and Graham Wardle, known for their roles as Amy Fleming and Ty Borden on the CBC television series, were taking part in the Cruise with a Cause six day motorcycle marathon for prostate cancer. The stop in Cranbrook was on the second day of their trip, next they headed to Kamloops then Kelowna and back towards the Lower Mainland. Fans who waited in line and donated money to the cause even got a little one-on-one time with Fleming and Wardle, who were more than happy to meet and pose for pictures with each individual. Mayor Wayne Stetski and two Sam Steele Sweethearts were there representing the city and the band One Bullet Down provided some tunes. To follow along on the stars’ ride, go to www.cruisewithacause.ca.
