My friend and assistant hockey coach David Robertson is an author of kick ass graphic novels that teach people of all ages about Aboriginal history in Canada. Recently, he asked me to lend a voice to one character in an online trailer for his upcoming book “7 generations”.
He’s also gotten a lot of hits on CBC.ca recently for his post about his graphic novels. It features such breathtaking insights into his creative process as:

He also makes some non-Holograms related points:

If you’re an educator, I suggest you teach your kids about Aboriginal contributions to Canada’s history. What’s more, I suggest you order some of Dave’s books. And even further, consider bringing Dave out to your school to talk to your group. That is all.
