Stephen Baker is the Principal of Virtual High School Ontario. The mission of the Virtual High School is to provide students with the opportunity to achieve success according to the student's own interests, abilities and goals. By providing a quality online education within the student's greater educational community, Virtual High School can offer the student more choice. While the Virtual High School may have changed the form of the traditional physical school in which this mission is carried out, they have not changed the provision of providing quality education to the student.

Lynn Ogryzlo is changing the local food world one household at a time with her $10 message. A culinary activist, food columnist, and cookbook author her cookbooks are all Canadian best sellers and international award winning books. Her first, Niagara Cooks, from farm to table won the Best Local Food Cookbook in Canada by Gourmand World Cookbook Awards and then went on to win Silver for Best Local Food Cookbook in the World. All of Lynn's books are about being reconnected with our most trusted, safest, freshest, best quality and most dependable source of food – that which grows in our own back yard. Lynn has issued Ontario with the $10 Challenge, to which she says, "If every household in Ontario spent $10 a week on local food, we’d have an additional $2.4 billion in our local economy at the end of the year. Keeping our money circulating grows those dollars to $3.6 billion and creates 10,000 new jobs." It’s a simple message but one that has the ability to empower us all.
