Dominique Liboiron

Dominique Liboiron is a speaker, author, teacher, journalist and photographer. To raise awareness about heart disease and to honour the life of one of its victims, Liboiron canoed from Saskatchewan to New Orleans. He is the first person to undertake that journey. He enjoys outdoor sports such as camping, hunting, fly fishing and canoeing.

It’s by teaching that we learn most

Arigato. The Japanese use this word to say thank you. It was one of the words my students showed me a few summers ago. Along with some limited vocabulary in their language, my class also taught me about their culture.

If you follow this column, you know that I like to share inspiring stories with you, especially of people who undertake long-distance journeys. This is one of those stories.
