It’s a party! Not only are we celebrating Canada Day this week in the Anti-Gloom Zoom Room, but Ryan, Rob, and Steve also raise a glass and talk to Albert Ruel, Get Together With Technology Coordinator for the Canadian Council of the Blind, who is officially retiring. We talk about his career as an employee of the CNIB and CCB as well as aspects of technology and even how he initially lost his sight.
It’s White Cane Week and to help kick off celebrations, we welcome Louise Gillis, President of The Canadian Council of the Blind to talk to us about the organization, its history, mandate, and the support that it provides to the visually impaired community.
