What Others Say

See what people are saying about Mike…


Mike introduced himself to me as an eager 1st year student looking to have a positive impact on his program and the students of Cambrian College.  By his final year, Mike was the Vice President of the Cambrian Students’ Administrative Council and an intern in the College Advancement office.  His effort is genuine…his enthusiasm infectious.  Cambrian students have enjoyed our strongest start-up in years, a real credit to Mike’s efforts, along with the rest of our student leadership team.  Mike has benefited from a truly hands-on program, and taken those valuable skills learned in the classroom and deployed them in a real-world setting with success.

Mike is an exceptional young man who’s attention to detail and willingness to involve himself have made him an indispensable addition to several committees as the College Student Alliance. I would strongly recommend Mike for any leadership role where his dedication to team dynamic, commitment to task and strong facilitating skills may be put to use.

 And in the political world…


I’ve been following this race, and Bleskie was early out the gates with a platform, hasn’t been using hyperbole like most of the people in this ward race, and has shown a surprising amount of thought in his ideas. New blood needed.

If youth are truly a culprit in Canada’s plummeting voter turnouts, […] Mike Bleskie is an astonishing anomaly…
