Community builds a sense of belonging, that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. And how else will we ever tackle problems – like climate change, poverty, homelessness – that are bigger than any of us alone?” – Bob Oliver, CEO, Pollution Probe
On November 17, more than 400 senior leaders from across Canada attended the 2015 Pollution Probe Annual Gala in Toronto. This year’s Gala, entitled Committed to Community, celebrated community empowerment as the gateway to healthier living in a healthier environment.
The highlight of the evening was a heartfelt and inspiring speech by Jaime Rogers, Manager of Homeless and Housing Development for the Medicine Hat Community Housing Society, upon her acceptance of the 2015 Pollution Probe Award on behalf of Medicine Hat. Her story, and that of Medicine Hat’s journey to end homelessness, was met with a standing ovation.
You’ll find more memories below. Thank you for being part of this special evening.
