    The article mentions skeptics and their belief of him writing the letter or not. Whether or not this remarkable young guy had any assistance writing the letter does not, and should not, matter. The heart (his heart) behind the letter is remarkable. The heart is there and, as Canadians and citizens of the world, that is what we are most proud of. The act, not the writing of the letter itself! My two cents anyhow :) way to go little man!

    It's hard to believe a ten year old kid (probably grade 5 level) wrote this note solely himself. Speaks of the war of 1812, preservation, survival, freedom et el. with ten year old writing skills. I'm very skeptical this part of the story is true. Perhaps he should go directly into post secondary when the new school year starts Sept.

      Don't be skeptical of this young man's references to the war of 1812, survival or freedom. As it is the bicentennial of the War of 1812, these conversations are happening in classrooms every day. Also, there was a commercial sponsored by the Feds throughout the Olympics, and it was about us winning the War of 1812. No skepticism needed here.
