Mike Lake is the Member of Parliament for Edmonton-Wetaskiwin and a leader in his community.

He is also a father and an advocate for people with autism, including his son Jaden.

Jaden was diagnosed at age 2 and has had a great deal of well-funded support over the years, a benefit of being born in Canada.

Children in other parts of the world are far more vulnerable, and Mike and Jaden share their story to affect change and improve understanding around autism, here at home and around the world.
