A Transformational Canadian

20 Oct

Dr. Wendy Cukier, President and co-founder of the Coalition for Gun Control and Associate Dean of the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University, was recognized today as one of 25 Transformational Canadians for “immeasurably improving the lives of others” through her long-time work as a gun control activist.

Having seen first-hand the powerful impact that mobilizing a large coalition of groups and individuals can have on the legislative process, I wish to thank Dr. Cukier for her tireless work and inspiration.

I feel honored to have worked with her throughout these months to ensure that Canada’s gun control laws were not weakened through the repeal of the long-gun registry.

Cheers Boss.
