This Movember film is silent, but the message is clear: if you grow only a moustache in November (no beard) it is a sign you have joined many men around the world in solidarity to talk about men's health issues and raise money for them. Let the Moustache-growing begin!

We watched this video in class on Wednesday, October 29th 2014. Mayor Naheed Nenshi is the first Muslim mayor of a major Canadian city (Calgary). He is very popular and very effective at being Mayor. He is a very social-media savvy guy. We talked about how his leadership in Canada promotes being a Muslim and a Canadian as a positive thing and how Canadians will embrace anyone of any culture if they love Canada and serve well in their position. Mayor Nenshi is one Fabulous and fun mayor! No wonder the people of Calgary love him!
In light of the recent municipal elections, we also talked about which characteristics are important in a Mayor in Canada - thinking about the examples of Rob Ford (past Mayor of Toronto), Mayor Nenshi, John Tory (soon-to-be Mayor of Toronto) and Mayor Gordon Krantz - what do you think are the top ten characteristics? We wrote down a large list on the board with what you'd expect: charisma, ability to communicate, have vision, planner, organized, problem-solver, honest, trust-worthy, anti-corruption, has good values, intelligent...and I would add that any Mayor should be able to sing and read on you-tube :)

I was born in Bogota Colombia South America.
I have been in Canada since February 2011.
I have been living in Milton for four years.
In my Canadian family there are six people: my daughter Carolina, her husband Marcello, two girls,
Paula 9 years old , Vanessa 6 years old, and my wife Amparo and I.
I had been working as Veterinarian doctor with cows for many years, now a days I have my own farm where we milk our Brown Swiss cows.
My youngest daughter who is now in Colombia is the one who is in charge of all my business.
I studied in Colombia twelve years at school and five years at the university.
I came to Canada because my son-in-low and my daughter sponsored me.
My advice for newcomers is that they have to know some English and also to be sure that they can work in the profession they had studied.
