The Collegiate’s Daniel Dillon says 13 students from their Equality and Social Justice/ Gay Straight Alliance along with 1 from the Student Council earned the trip through projects they worked on last year. He says We Day gives them a great learning opportunity and to be inspired by such people as Chris Hadfield, Margaret Trudeau, Rick Hansen, Paula Abdul and Mike Downie who is Gord Downie’s brother and are just some of the people who will be there this year to educate the kids, show the kids ideas, inspire the kids. He adds they have been fortunate to be invited as well to an Inspiration Night where the students will be able to meet the Kielbergers, Spencer West and have an opportunity to collaborate and network with other people in the province.
The students also had the opportunity to tour the Human Rights Museum yesterday. There will be over 14 thousand people at We Day in Winnipeg this year.
