Tony Janolino was chosen to be an ambassador of British Columbia on the 5th leg of the Canada C3 expedition. His task is to share knowledge about his home province with people he meets. On this journey he will explore our nation’s natural beauty, learn about the people living in the places he visits, and later bring home stories from the people on the East Coast. Many Canadians do not travel to other parts of Canada, so it is Tony's goal to raise awareness about people living in other parts of the nation. The first step towards inclusivity is learning about our diverse people.
"I am a visually impaired guide dog handler from Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. At Simon Fraser University, I study Kinesiology and Health Sciences and also work in Recreation and Athletics to help others live an active lifestyle. When not at the university, I am playing music and exploring the world. I have a passion for the outdoors and find myself constantly learning something new about the wildlife.
My guide dog is from the “Guide Dogs For the Blind” School in California. She is a pathfinder both in the Canadian wilderness and cities. Together, we are a team of adventurers who travel many miles on foot.
Come share our adventures and meet a variety of friends on our journey."
