Hockey Mom loves her Nygard Slims

Maggie McKenzie’s resume reads like a true fashionista. In her twenties, she co-owned a clothing boutique with her sister, Louise, called Montpellier Designs (their maiden names) in Sudbury, Ont.

But her “real” life isn’t nearly as glamorous. The truth is, this self-described “hockey” mom is all about her family.

So what does McKenzie have to say about rinkside fashion?

“Women become comfortable and forget how important it is to always take care of yourself, says McKenzie. “How you dress affects your mood all day. You can still look cool and look put-together — no matter where you are.”

Q: What is the most prized possession in your closet?

A: My $49 Nygard Slims (pants/jeggings) are probably my most prized possessions today because they tuck and lift everything and we all know how important that is.

Peter Nygard Seeks Fairness in Bahamas Courts

It has been reported in the Bahamian media on July 18, 2014 that the Save the Bays coalition and certain Lyford Cay residents, lead by Mr. Nygard's neighbor, Louis Bacon, chief executive of Moore Capital Management, have obtained an injunction against the Bahamian Government and Government officials prohibiting them from considering Peter Nygard's applications to obtain permits to rebuild his residence at Nygard Cay which was vastly destroyed by a devastating fire in November 2009.

It is well known that Mr. Bacon has wanted to obtain ownership of Nygard Cay and has attempted to do so for the last ten years. When Mr. Nygard would not sell it to him, he used illegal and unsavory means to acquire Mr. Nygard’s property. Save The Bays is yet another vehicle for Mr. Bacon to prevent Mr. Nygard from reconstructing his residence.

The Bahamas Court has ordered that the respondents can be heard on whether the injunction should be continued. The court hearings to obtain these injunctions were secretive under the court rules, without notice to anyone. Yet contrary to these rules, particulars were leaked to the media by the lawyers for the applicants in a public campaign to damage Mr. Nygard’s reputation.

The problem now is that although Peter Nygard has been the subject of these proceedings he has not been given an opportunity to be heard. As a result of these actions, Mr. Nygard has filed applications before the Court today seeking standing so that he can be heard by the court and so that the process is fair.

Mr. Nygard’s lawyer, Thomas Evans, who is a prominent member of the Bahamas bar and has served as a part-time judge of the Bahamas Supreme Court stated that "This is clearly a campaign orchestrated to deprive Mr. Nygard of his use of Nygard Cay". He further states that "Mr. Nygard should clearly have standing to ensure the fairness and integrity of the process" and that "These two recent proceedings are a clear abuse of process of the Court in light of an earlier application commenced in the summer of 2013."

Peter Nygard Grateful for Support

Peter Nygard is touched by the massive outpouring of love, support and appreciation that he has received through hundreds of phone calls and messages,” the statement said.

“In particular he is grateful to the thousands of Bahamians who protested on July 14 for hours on West Bay Street in the heart of Nassau against Louis Bacon and in support of Peter Nygard for all he has done for the inner city Bahamians.”

Nygard Slims Ponte Pant

This pant is a slim fit, smoothing out as it stretches.

Although slim, the fit is comfortably made with our ponte knit and the thick waistband sits at your natural waist.

Functional everyday pant.

Bahamians Support Peter Nygard

Scores of supporters of Lyford Cay billionaire Peter Nygard marched noisily through downtown Nassau yesterday in defence of the fashion designer over the criticism he has received from environmentalists and other Lyford Cay residents concerning his controversial development plans.

Several of the protesters carried placards which read “No selective environmentalists here – keep out” and “The high water mark! No trespassing.”

Over the weekend, Mr Nygard responded to the lawsuits against his proposed expansion plans at Simms Point/Nygard Cay and claimed they are “legal stalling tactics” and present no new environmental assessments.

In a statement released by his Canadian lawyer, Mr Nygard expressed his shock at the allegations, maintaining that he “has always been environmentally conscious” and that recent media reports regarding his “efforts to rebuild Nygard Cay have not been presented accurately”.

Peter Nygard denies stem cell allegations

Recent media reports regarding efforts to re-build Nygard Cay have not been presented accurately.

There have been false claims made that suggest the Nygard Cay property is to become a medical facility.

Mr. Nygard has confirmed on numerous occasions this is completely false. He has no intent of building a stem cell facility on his property, and has made no application to use his property in that manner.

In fact, his application is to invest $50 Million dollars and employ approximately 200 Bahamian people to simply complete the reconstruction of his private residence.

Peter Nygard supports Bahamian environment

Recent media reports regarding efforts to re-build Nygard Cay have not been presented accurately. Peter Nygard has been a champion of the Bahamas and specifically the preservation of Simms Point and Jaws Beach for more than 30 years. Peter Nygard fully supports protecting the environment of the Bahamas. It is the natural beauty of the Island which led him to choose this country for his home.

The documents related to construction activities at Nygard Cay clearly show permission to build on government land and the promise by the government of a lease of that property was obtained in a letter from the Lands and Survey Director Mr. Garraway. Peter Nygard simply wants to re-build and restore his home following a devastating fire in 2009 that left 70% of the home in ruins.

Peter Nygård hosts many people in Bahamas

Throughout the years, Mr. Nygard has shared his property with many celebrities, dignitaries and members of the Lyford Cay community, such as Sean Connery, George H.W. Bush, and members of various royal families.

It has been a favorite destination for weddings and anniversaries for Lyford Cay residents and local Bahamians.

Nygard Cay has been the host of Olympic and amateur sports training events and celebrations and church socials.

Peter Nygård Hosting Kids Camp

Peter Nygård became a Bahamian in the early 80's. He is an environmentalist, a humanitarian and has been described as the most philanthropic champion for the Bahamian people.

Currently, in addition to substantial donations, Peter Nygård has also given the full use of his home to the Bahamian National Defense Force, who is working in partnership with the Clifton Heritage Foundation in the running of a 6-week summer camp for 700 inner city kids, which is being hosted presently at Nygård Cay.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Recent media reports regarding efforts to re-build Nygard Cay have not been presented accurately. Peter Nygard has been a champion of the Bahamas and specifically the preservation of Simms Point and Jaws Beach for more than 30 years. Mr. Nygard fully supports protecting the environment of the Bahamas. It is the natural beauty of the Island which led him to choose this country for his home. 

The current judicial review applications, which have been filed in court over the last 2 weeks, are an attempt to change the  government process. They present no new environmental assessments. In 2010, Mr. Nygard made an application to the Government for permits regarding the reconstruction of his private residence. Since filing for the permits Mr. Nygard has fully cooperated during a long wait period of 4 years.  The required environmental assessments have been completed and are in the hands of the Government, including the most recent assessment completed in February 2014. These assessments confirm that there has never been any adverse environmental impact caused by Nygard activities. 

There has been more than enough time to complete proper reviews and assessments and Mr. Nygard has been more than patient.  Oddly, it now appears Mr. Nygard's simple application for permits has been hand selected and used improperly by "Save the Bays", an organization that is the front for the very secretive Louis Bacon who is the owner of Moore Capital Management.  As Mr. Nygard's immediate neighbour in Lyford Cay, Mr. Bacon has orchestrated continual attacks on Mr. Nygard for many years . Louis Bacon has always wanted Nygard Cay for himself and Mr. Nygard has never been interested in selling his home. Over 10 years ago, Louis Bacon told Mr. Nygard that he would "get it one way or another". Now "Save The Bays" is focusing on the re-building of a private home while publicly stating their issue is the government process.  This tactic led by Louis Bacon is a complete farce and an improper manipulation of the public process to acquire Nygard Cay.

The documents related to construction activities at Nygard Cay clearly show permission to build on government land and the promise by the government of a lease of that property was obtained in a letter from the Lands and Survey Director Mr. Garraway.  Mr. Nygard simply wants to re-build and restore his home following a devastating fire in 2009 that left 70% of the home in ruins.

These new judicial review claims are nothing more than on-going "legal stalling" tactics which have been waged by Louis Bacon for more than 5 years now. The recent judicial review claims have not included any new environmental assessments. In fact none has been provided by the group who call themselves "Save the Bay" or by any other parties protesting the government process. It is the legal duty of the Government to review the permit application and it has completed its due diligence.

There have been false claims made that suggest the Nygard Cay property is to become a medical facility. Mr. Nygard has confirmed on numerous occasions this is completely false. He has no intent of building a stem cell facility on his property, and has made no application to use his property in that manner.  In fact,  his application is to invest $50 Million dollars and employ approximately 200 Bahamian people to simply complete the reconstruction of his private residence.

Peter Nygard and many who are close to him are shocked at the allegations as he has always been environmentally conscious. He advocates policies within his company to promote and support several environmental programs. Peter Nygard specifically designed his home to showcase the natural beauty of the Bahamas and to preserve its natural environment.

Nygard Cay has been one of the main attractions in the Bahamas over the last 30 years. It is often called the 8th wonder of the world. Throughout the years, Mr. Nygard has shared his property with many celebrities, dignitaries and members of the Lyford Cay community, such as Sean Connery, George H.W. Bush, and members of various royal families. It has been a favorite destination for weddings and anniversaries for Lyford Cay residents and local Bahamians. Nygard Cay has been the host of Olympic and amateur sports training events and celebrations and church socials.

Peter Nygard became a Bahamian in the early 80's. He is an environmentalist, a humanitarian and has been described as the most philanthropic champion for the Bahamian people.

Currently, in addition to substantial donations, Peter Nygard has also given the full use of his home to the Bahamian National Defense Force, who is working in partnership with the Clifton Heritage Foundation in the running of a 6-week summer camp for 700 inner city kids, which is being hosted presently at Nygard Cay.

Oprah and Peter Nygård in the Bahamas

In 1987, Peter Nygård fulfilled his creative passion & architecturally designed & built his own 5 acre Robinson Crusoe playground named NYGÅRD CAY. Nygård's private luxury home includes replicas of Mayan Temples, private tennis court, beaches, pool and an aquarium. There is also a disco club & state-of-the-art Home Theatre, and twenty plus themed cabanas for himself, his family & many celebrity guests who wish to get away for a serene sabbatical. Many times he has opened his home to Bahamian residents and they could be found together playing beach volleyball on the premises.

Peter Nygård's home has become one of the most talked about and most unique private residences throughout the world. As a matter of fact, Oprah hosted her show in Nassau showcasing some of the most beautiful homes in the Bahamas & said, “After seeing NYGÅRD CAY, I am not living large enough.”

Peter Nygård Supports Bahamian Athletics

When it comes to Bahamian athletics Peter Nygård is definitely not a stranger.

Over the years Nygård's love of sports and his desire to help people succeed has motivated him to sponsor many Bahamian athletes. For example for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia Nyård sponsored the "Golden Girls" relay team and they subsequently ended up winning the first gold medal for the Bahamas. 

Again in 2002, Nygård was instrumental in helping the Amateur Boxing Federation of the Bahamas take its team to Martinique. In recent years his support for beach volleyball has grown, making significant contributions to The Bahamas Volleyball Federation and The Bahamas National Beach Volleyball team. 

Many times you can actually catch ordinary Bahamians plying volleyball on his Estate at Nygard Cay.
