I've been following him on Twitter. Really amazing photographs he's taking up there. He answers questions too. Its really neat to have someone aboard ISS that interacts with people on the surface.
Yea, I think he's doing an amazing job, he's focused on his work and speaking with Canadians in his spare time, and regularly tweeting some amazing photographs as you said.
I think he's setting a great example for kids as well, when he referred to his time in air cadets, "My time as an Air Cadet helped me become a successful pilot in the Canadian Forces. Cadets is where I started." Air cadets is a great place for kids to learn structure, respect and responsibility, especially kids that come from a rough home as air cadets is free
... so to say to a kid that 'this guy started with air cadets and became an astronaut with a great journey in between', that can be motivating.
