Fungus, loonies and a car wash!

It gives me great pleasure to introduce this dynamo to Awesome People.  Lynn Greene!

Lynn Greene is a dynamo! I first came across her while being introduced to this video, Citizen X. A video about Bill C-16 or more commonly called the bathroom bill. It's a bill that will amend the human rights act to protect those transitioning while using a public washroom. Why this has become such a big issue, we are not sure, but Lynn is not someone to sit and do nothing. She and a group of talented individuals made this video to show support to those who are transgendered, and to say, "Hey this is ridiculous; we just wanna pee!"

Here is an article from CBC on the whole bathroom bill if you want to learn more.

Lynn is passionate and driven.  There is never a dull moment. 

Not one to be a "sheep" Lynn has always followed her own path, which constantly leads her in new directions. Lynn was one of 14 who travelled to Tanzania to help build the Ipagala school, whose wall she helped paint this mural on.

At some point we are responsible for our own lives. 

Lynn ran away at 16 and has never looked back. Her motto is "We can do better!" The tough times in her life made her strong and more compassionate. She is resistant, fun and never bored! 

Lynn's next project - a stop-motion with Builder Bob.
