They may not wear capes, but they're quietly overcoming challenges and making our community better. On this episode of Now or Never, we celebrate everyday heroes.
Like crossing guard Mischelle Squire, whose dance moves and energy make her a favourite at Toronto's John Ross Robertson Public School. Find out why the whole school recently held a surprise parade in Mischelle's honour.
Vivian Ketchum started her education at residential school, and now - at the age of 58 - is graduating from high school. Friends gather to look back on how far she's come, and we surprise Viv with her favourite musician, Ernest Monias.
