He is full member of the Canadian Association of Personal Property Appraisers and has been involved in numerous “Antiques Roadshows” over the past 10 years. Bring your favourite antique or collectible to the show and Mr. Cameron will take a look at it. That garage sale item may be worth a lot of money!
