Janine Landry

Janine, a 19 year old student at Lakehead University, has been active with the Thunder Bay Metis Council and Community for the past two years.  Janine has been an ambassador for Thunder Bay, representing youth across the province at Annual Assemblies as well as at youth and elder meetings and workshops.  She was chosen to be one of only 11 aboriginal youth flame keepers with the Olympic torch relay.  Unlike the standard torch bearers, Janine's journey began in Fredericton, New Brunswick on Nov. 22, 2009, and ended in Winnipeg on Jan. 5, 2010.  Janine is such a positive role model not only for Metis youth but for all youth in Thunder Bay and across the country.
