In his thirteen years as a Member of Parliament, Hon. Mike Lake has had many unique opportunities to raise awareness of autism. He’s spoken to spouses of world leaders at the UN in New York City; traveled to London, Paris, Geneva and Washington to speak with fellow elected officials from across the political spectrum; and addressed global leaders at the WHO and in the international research community.
