Going forward, the tone of my work is going to flow from two major questions:
Is Earth ready to join the Federation? (and sub-questions, like 'is Canada ready?')
Am I prepared to join Starfleet? (and related questions like 'are Canadian students and graduates prepared?')
I think these are powerful guiding questions. The optimism!
If Boy Scouts has been about preparing young citizens to join the Military and serve their nation in defense, then my work and the Canadian Digital Service is about preparing young citizens to lead and join Starfleet, to serve their fellow humans in peace and dignity.
Are you ready to join Starfleet?
