In these turbulent times, you could be forgiven for feeling a bit pessimistic, however, for a century, the Optimist Club of Canada has kept looking on the bright side of life. Some of the Club branches located in Western Canada held a conference in Calgary with the theme, "Bringing out the best in kids." One of the invited speakers is an Optimist Club member from Ontario who also happens to be Miss Canada 2018. Maria Giorlando is a nurse who took the crown in March of 2018 and as part of tour, she's commited to bringing a message of optimism wherever she goes. She chatted with Russell Bowers about her title and volunteer work.
