November 9, 2005 - Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School Council held its weekly meeting at the school with special guest, Mayor Dave Courtemanche in attendance. Mayor Dave was invited to the school as part of the "YouthThink, Switch Shoes" initiative. "YouthThink" is a unique educational campaign that seeks to raise awareness and dialogue among adults and youth about the inclusion of young people in the community of Greater Sudbury. The project is part of the Social Planning Council of Sudbury's Closing the Distant initiative. Mayor Courtemanche spent the afternoon shadowing Eric Spence, a Grade 11 student at Bishop Carter which included taking part in a computer lab class, a student council meeting, and a basketball practice. Eric will attend a meeting with the Mayor later this month which is a key component in the "YouthThink, Switch Shoes" initiative.
