Port Edward students heard a presentation from Michael Bortolotto, a motivational speaker from Nanaimo, earlier this week. Bortolotto has cerebral palsy and shared the challenges he has overcome because of his disability with the students. His message is a powerful reminder of our need for love, acceptance and friendship.
