British Columbia, Canada - Patrick spoke at the JCI Canada National Convention held at the Kimberly Ski Lodge in the Kootenoys. High in the mountains, the theme of the conference was "Climbing to the Top". On Thursday morning, Patrick presented the seminar: Painting with Passion - The Effective Use of Words to about 120 participants. During Friday's lunch, Patrick was the keynote speaker for the entire conference speaking to a packed house as he talked about his tragedy and overcoming adversity. Book sales were brisk after the key note. During his time in Canada, Patrick got a chance to hike to the top of a mountain and kayak in the white waters.
