LaSalle Park Retirement Community’s 96-year-old Betty Barlett got her wish to meet Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Inspired by the idea of checking items off a bucket list, senior residents are granted their ultimate wishes. And, on November 2, 2016, 96-year-old Betty Barlett was granted her wish to meet Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Betty was flown to Ottawa (her first time on a plane in ages!) and given the grand tour of Parliament Hill. The highlight, though, was her one-on-one meeting with Justin Trudeau in which she shared a scrapbook with newspaper clippings of his father, Pierre Trudeau.
We’re glad you had a wonderful time, Betty!
Other residents have had opportunities such as meeting astronaut Chris Hadfield, doing the CN Tower Edge Walk, hanging out with comedian Colin Mochrie and zip-lining over the Elora Gorge.
