The Road Less Travelled
Prepare to laugh, cry, and be empowered with activist, broadcaster and comedian, Candy Palmater. From student council president in a small rural high school, to valedictorian of her law school class, to national TV and radio shows and a soon to be published memoir, Candy's life experiences are both unique and universal. Equipped with personal stories and words of guidance, she will share her passionate perspective on Canada, reconciliation, and the love affair she wants to engage in. As one of Canada's most sought after speakers, take advantage of this rare opportunity to hear her speak about the power of love, kindness and self-acceptance. Once you've heard her speak you will never see the world, or yourself, in quite the same way.
