I volunteer with the Alberta Motorcycle Safety Society. I used to work in the transport industry and, on occasion, saw the effects of unsafe driving practices: car, truck or motorbike. A friend and I started discussing the need for such an organization a few years ago. It’s funny, being this involved in the society has shown me that I wasn’t nearly as safe on my bike as I thought I was. Over the years, I’ve been involved in many other volunteer groups – I don’t look for anything in return, it’s really satisfying and fulfilling. If, as Canadians, we give just a bit of our time we can improve someone’s life.
