Tom Jackson’s Love of Music and People

Canadians Changing The World:

Over the next few months, I will continue to take my blog out to meet people in my community who are taking action to change the world. Like a snail pulling myself off my rock, I am getting out and interacting with the people in the community to get to know them. I am also embarking on an on-line virtual road trip, to recognize Canadians who are finding ways to make our world a better place.

In December 1973, I rode the CP Rail train from Vancouver to Montreal. On the 5,000 kilometre, four day train ride, I had a front row seat to the landscape of my homeland, and along the journey, I enjoyed the dense snow covered forest of The Rocky mountains in Banff and Jasper, and the tall, wind whistled trees that partitioned the forever golden prairies in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, and stopovers in many of the nation’s capital cities, before I reached my destination of Montreal.

Canadian Train Trip

Experience the temperature, the landscape and the people of Canada

Like a train ride, life is about embracing the journey, wherever the train takes you, and appreciating and engaging with the people you meet or learn about along the way..

Tom Jackson

This week’s extraordinary Canadian is Tom Jackson, recording artist, actor, and humanitarian. Tom combines his artistic skills, his first-hand knowledge of homelessness and drug addiction, with community leadership in his Aboriginal community to inspire others to overcome obstacles and turn their lives around as he has done.

Since 1987, Tom has used his musical talent to raise millions of dollars for food banks with his “Sing For Your Supper Program”, becoming a role model for Canadians who live in poverty. He continues to entertain and perform his music across the country to benefit community organizations, and this month he is the featured artist at The Badlands Tourism Expo in Alberta with keynote speaker Brett Wilson, another extraordinary Canadian, on March 26, 2014.

Watch George Stroumboulopoulos, interviewing Tom Jackson on the video below.

I saw Strombo on stage interviewing Oprah when she came to Vancouver, doing a spontaneous Q & A on stage and impressing both the audience and Oprah herself with the quality of his questions. His latest gig is announcing Hockey Night in Canada when Rogers takes over the broadcast, where he will commit grand larceny of the announcer’s chair with his laser beam skills at connecting with Canadians and their favorite game, hockey. He has spent his career celebrating Canadians, and now he serendipitously brings us together with our game. #GOHABSGO
