MESSAGE FROM POLLUTION PROBE CEO

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][vc_column_text]

Welcome to the Pollution Probe’s 50th anniversary gala.

There is much to celebrate! For Probe, it is an opportunity to reflect upon the past, present and future of our organization and the environment. A lot has changed since 1969, when the first Pollution Probers had to explain words like “pollution” and “environment”.

In our early days, we helped remove phosphates from detergents. We coined the widely recognized phrase “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” and helped create Blue Box recycling. We tackled Great Lakes pollution and acid rain. Later on, we helped to reduce sulphur content in gasoline, close Ontario’s coal plants, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from cars and trucks. More recently, Pollution Probe has been accelerating the uptake of electric and hydrogen vehicles, contributing to Ontario’s Drive Clean Program redesign to target heavy duty truck emissions, and pushing for extended producer responsibility to reduce plastic pollution and move towards a circular economy. Quite simply, Canadians are healthier because Pollution Probe has been here.

And yet, many challenges remain. Climate Change is the most pressing and challenging environmental issue the world has ever faced. We need to do more in an increasingly constrained time window to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions while at the same time adapt to an inevitably changing climate. Our water is challenged by things like harmful bacteria, nutrients, plastics, pharmaceuticals and personal care products. Air pollution from transportation, electricity generation, buildings and industry continues to have an impact on the health and well-being of Canadians and the environment.

Pollution Probe’s 50th anniversary is an opportunity to celebrate our legacy, environmental leadership, and to recommit ourselves to developing solutions to the environmental challenges before us. Our history demonstrates that when dedicated people pull together, solutions present themselves. Pollution Probe will be here, working with all of you, to craft the solutions for better human health and the environment.

Please enjoy the evening. We thank you for your support and friendship.

Yours truly,

Christopher Hilkene

PETER MIDDLETON LEGACY AWARD

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1574369991906{background-color: #ffffff !important;}”]

2019 has been a banner year for Pollution Probe with the commemoration of our 50th Anniversary, but our celebrations have been tempered with sadness at the passing of a dear friend and iconic leader – our first ever Executive Director, Peter Middleton. He was a leader in energy and environmental management and an inspiration to all who knew him. As a co-founder of Pollution Probe, he was a driving force behind the organization’s earliest achievements and helped shape the legacy and identity of Pollution Probe as it exists today. On an anniversary that Probe would not have reached without his efforts, talent and dedication, we pay tribute to him with the Peter Middleton Legacy Award, in gratitude and the deepest respect for Peter’s memory.

The award is dedicated to Pollution Probe’s early founders and accepted on their behalf by:

  • John Coombs
  • Monte Hummel
  • Brian Kelly
  • Ruth Kelly
  • Ann Love
  • Geoff Love
  • Peter Love

ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP AWARD

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1574130504012{background-color: #ffffff !important;}”]

The Right Honourable M. Brian Mulroney, P.C., C.C., G.O.Q, will be in attendance at the Gala to receive the 2019 Pollution Probe Environmental Leadership Award and to share his thoughts on Canada and the environment past, present and future.

As Prime Minister, Mr. Mulroney displayed exceptional commitment to environmental protection, negotiating the Canada-U.S. Acid Rain Accord and passing both the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act and Canadian Environmental Protection Act. Canada’s Green Plan and eight major national parks were brought into being during his tenure, allowing for the protection of vital ecosystems, and Canada became an early leader on climate action thanks in large part to his leadership at the UNCED Earth Summit as Canada’s first Prime Minister to focus proactively on climate change.

We’re honoured to have M. Mulroney involved in our 50th anniversary celebrations!

Autumn understands that the work to protect Nibi and Mother Earth must happen immediately in order to secure a future for the next generations to come.

Autumn was appointed as the Anishinabek Nation Chief Water Commissioner in June 2019 where she will be representing the Anishinabek Nation on all matters as they relate to water. Autumn is a three-time nominee for the International Children’s Peace Price; a nominee for the 2019 Muhammed Ali Humanitarian Award; recipient of 2017 Canadian Living Me to We Award Youth in Action under 12; recipient of the Sovereign Medal of Exceptional Volunteerism in 2017; recipient of 2017 Ontario Junior Citizens Award; 2018 Ottawa Riverkeeper Award; recipient of the 2019 Water Warrior Award from Ecologos; recognized as one of 30 under 30 by North America for Environmental Education; and was named in the 100 Most Influential People in the World for Climate Change Policy in 2019.

SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1573770244699{background-color: #ffffff !important;}”]

As a Member of the Ontario PC Caucus Services, Andrea Khanjin, MPP knows what it takes to help focus on the things that affect our communities, including the continuation of cleaning up Lake Simcoe. Andrea’s care and desire to help create a better community and habitat landed her the title of Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of the Environment, Conservation, and Parks. This entitlement will allow her to help better the community in which she is so very proud to call home.

In 2018, the people in the Barrie-Innisfil Riding elected Andrea. She will now work hard to bring positive results for everyone. She hopes to secure funding for our infrastructure needs, make life in our communities more affordable and deliver an economic strategy that will help for better-paying jobs.

She is proud of the values of hard work, service and respect that she has learned by living in Innisfil. She is ready to serve Barrie-Innisfil and bring those values into Queen Park.
