I volunteered at the CNIB today. I helped distribute the new 2010 TTC Metropass to clients. Blind people can't drive and have a hard time getting around, so it's nice that the TTC gives blind people a metropass through the CNIB. Being blind myself, I can tell you the pass helps out a lot. I feel like I have to help out, just to give a little back. My job was to record the name and pass number and give people their new card. So many people show up on the very first day, I think a lot of people don't know the old pass is still accepted through January. It was crazy busy all morning and I worked straight through. I'm going in again tomorrow to help out again.
Shania Twain carried the Olympic torch in Timmins on New Years Eve. It would have been nice to be asked. I'm not the most famous dude from Timmins, but to not even be asked. Humbled.
