I was really impressed and lucky to meet and strategize with Deepan and Melanie this week.
They have recognized critical needs of an important group of mostly young people who often live below the povety line: researchers.
Melanie reflected on how some of the cutting edge work done in Canada is done by those who make a pittance. This needs to change, and in the meantime, issues like food security must be addressed, and they’ve started by connecting with local farmers.
They’re well on their way to creating some solutions, from Scarborough and on outwards. I’m looking forward to sharing their successes.
