The Canadian Governor General's Innovation Visit

On September 18, 2017, a new flag was raised at St. George School. The flag of His Excellency, David Johnston, the Governor General of Canada. David Johnston and engineer, Tom Jenkins, visited the school to advertise their new book, Innovation Nation. Innovation Nation is about 50 innovations that Canadians have made. They talked about some innovations in the book, like the recycling bin and the dump truck. It was interesting to find out all this information, especially for those of us who want to be writers. Also, all the grade 6 students got a free, autographed, hardcover copy of the book. I suspect everyone is itching to buy Innovation Nation, which will be released in October. Stay tuned for more innovation information! -Luc Chamois
