The World’s Most Famous Astronaut Comes to Barrie

The Chilton Team would like to thank Col. Chris Hadfield for bringing his inspirational story to Barrie. Following his keynote address to hundreds of people in the audience at Georgian College, he joined us for lunch and a visit with a very lucky group of young local students.

Col. Hadfield made time to speak at length with each of the kids, listening to their stories and ambitions, and offering guidance on how to reach their goals – no matter how high! In addition to the students, Col. Hadfield exchanged stories with 83 year old Joseph Sammut, a former Engineering Technician at Spar Aerospace who helped build the first Canadarm. From young to old, Col. Hadfield continues to inspire generations of Canadians.

Thanks Col. Hadfield!
