February 2019 (Inclusive Education Month)
The month of February was very busy. Michael used Skype to speak to a 3rd year Sociology Class on Social Movements at the University of Alberta. Michael spoke to five different elementary schools in the Niagara Region. He spent three days in the Huntsville/Sundridge area speaking to elementary schools, secondary schools, parent presentations, a radio talk show, and to a local on-line newspaper called the Huntsville Doppler. On Friday February 22, Michael was welcomed as the keynote speaker for the Golden Key International Honour Society. It was their annual Canadian conference organized by the Brock University chapter. At the end of Michael’s presentation, he was made an Honorary Member of the Society. Michael was surprised and thrilled to be given this honour. Michael ended the month presenting with his sister at Cool Concept #4 at Shopify in Toronto. It is an event put on by the Toronto Design Directory and it invites creative people to talk about personal projects. The audience was laughing and in tears throughout the presentation and Michael had a great time hanging in Toronto.
