LG of Ontario's Literacy Initiatives

Hi everyone,

On a bit of a blogging role today. At Frontier College's Summer Leadership Forum, Lyndsay, myself and other volunteers from across Canada had the opportunity to meet the event's keynote speaker, the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, the Hon. James K. Bartleman. He is quite involved in literacy initiatives, particularly targeted at high needs Aboriginal communities in Northern Ontario (and now the north generally). He's organized book drives for northern libraries, has a twinning program between Toronto Schools and schools on northern Ontario reserves, and also coordinated summer literacy camps. Anyone interested can find more information on his literacy initiatives HERE.

Looking forward to seeing all the new volunteers either tonight or tomorrow at training!
