Lorne Cardinal has been having fun this week speaking with students at Some of Medicine Hat’s schools.

Famously known for the role of Sgt. Davis Quinton on Corner Gas, Cardinal is here as part of the First Nations, Metis and Inuit speaker series.

Cardinal tells students to be passionate about what they decide to do

Cardinal says, “Find something you’re passionate about to pursue for the rest of your life, and then when you find that, get training so you can succeed.  Also (learn) how to battle fear.  Fear gets in the way of a lot of people trying things, experiencing things.  So it’s encouraging them to ignore that little voice that’s inside your head.”

Cardinal says you learn from trying and failing, but you don’t learn from not trying.
