#ElderWisdom

“The greatest untapped resource in Canada, if not the world, is the collective wisdom of our elders.”

~Ron Schlegel

The Right Honourable David Johnston, former Governor General of Canada, and Ron Schlegel have been close for many years. They share stories and laughter upon the #ElderWisdom bench on a late spring afternoon.
