FORMER PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA VISITS WALPOLE ISLAND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Former Prime Minister of Canada, Paul Martin made a visit to Walpole Island Elementary School Wednesday morning. He has been a heavily involved supporter of the Walpole Island School for the past five years.

In his speech to the children of Bkejwanong,  Mr. Martin said to them, “You represent a very great people, and your going to make that very great people even greater. You’re going to make them greater because you went to this school, because you had the teachers you had, because of the  Chief and councilors you have and the Elder that spoke to you today talked about how strong your nation is going to become because of you.”

Newly Elected Chief Dan Miskokomon honored the visitors with traditional gifts from Bkejwanong. The students also gave gifts to the visitors that spoke to them.
