On november 10th I will be at the London Convention Centre for Facing Off with Literacy, a celebration of the trials, triumphs and life of Senator Jacques Demers. A 2 time NHL coach of the year, Jacques will recount his life as a top NHL coach while facing several issues with low literacy during his entire NHL career. His story is one of hardships and liberation and I couldn’t be more excited to be attending.
A great thanks goes out to our literacy community partners for putting together this event and to great organizations such as TD, College Boreal and Goodwill for their support.
If you are unable to attend, I will be tweeting live from the event so make sure to follow along with the hashtag #DemersFaceOff
Also, If you have a question that you’d like to ask Senator Demers leave it in the comments below or tweet it with the hashtag #DemersFaceOff
