"What a terrific repertoire of all things Canadian"
"Michael Mitchell is the kind of person we need more of -- all Canadian and proud of it"
"Hello there: I just wanted to write you a quick note to let you know how much my children enjoyed your performance yesterday at their school.
"My daughter called me at work last night and sang "Land of the Silver Birch" to me, a song that I remembered singing at my school as a child. My son who has ADHD had just the day before had a letter sent home saying that he was having problems listening and respecting people talking. He sat through the WHOLE show watching. This morning I found him at our kitchen counter writing out a song about Dinosaurs.
"You have to understand that having him read or write is always a chore, so to see him sitting there trying his hardest to write out the words to the song was an amazing moment for me.
"So I thank you for touching the lives of these kids. I hope that they have you back again in the future."
