John Ianetti Honoured on 90th by Prime Minister Buchanan and Friends

Have you seen John Ianetti at Cabot Shores?   If you have a

good story of how you got to Cape Breton,

he is likely to say with a smile:  “God love you”.

He is a man with a penetrating gaze, and an abiding interest

in meeting people and sharing his love for Cape Breton…

The Ianetti’s came from Tuscany, Italy and this month

John Iannetti is 90.   His father introduced sheep to Cape

Breton, even grazing in as isolated spot as The

Bird Islands…which you can see from the Lodge.

His Dad entertained Al Capone with poker in

Sydney Mines.  Not sure he lived that long after that since

he called Capone a cheat.

Fortunately he lived on because Capone didn’t return to

Cape Breton after that.

Certificates were presented to Johnny by Prime Minister John

and of course from ex Premier John Buchanan who delivered

all the certificates and presented them to Johnny at the party.
