The second Ontario Council Recognition Awards were presented by President Sandra Thomson, with the Standing Committees Chairs and the Advocacy Coordinator at the 2019 AGM held May 11, 2019.
This year a new award was established – the Carolyn Day Award for Environmental Action in honour of Carolyn Day, a Past-President of Ontario Council, 1998-2000, who was the Environment, Clean Water and Great Lakes Policy Advisor from 2000 until her death in 2018. What started as a concern about Walkerton turned into a passion and a knowledge base. During her time, she wrote more than 40 briefs and letters, attended many meetings on our behalf and was even called by government on some occasions.
