Dave Weatherill hosted Ryan Lancaster, an Okanagan College business graduate and Enactus alumni, who has recently founded “The Million Dollar Bus Project,” to “find & fund incredible, unknown community passion projects across Canada,” in “social, environmental, agricultural, artistic, health/sport, entrepreneurial, cultural & trades” categories.  Money donated to the Project will be recycled back to various passion projects;  businesses & organizations are encouraged to purchase advertising by the square inch, which will be displayed on the bus; social media will complement the bus graphics.  A founding Kelowna passion project is Okanagan Makerspace – a facility where anyone can come to do projects, learn to use tools, or develop their ideas.
