President Avril greeted us in our new noon-hour meeting location at Flogo’s. All attending enjoyed the quiet of this location, and we were hooked up to Basil Dias via Zoom and our special guest, Cam Stewart, who spoke to us from Calgary.
Basil introduced Cam and shared his bio with us. Some details include:
His activities have been in the field of diversity, inclusion, and human rights for over 20 years.
He has been awarded for his work, including the Jewish Repairing the World Award, the YMCA Peace Medal, the Baja’l Community Racial Harmony Award, the Alberta Outstanding Contribution to Community Adult Learning Award, and he is most proud to have been honored with an eagle feather from Elder Doreen  Spence and been gifted with a Blackfoot name of Mikostahpinukum (Red Morning) by Herman Yellow Old Woman.
Under his leadership and guidance, the Calgary Police Service received the Calgary Immigrant Aid Society’s Immigrant of Distinction Corporate Diversity Award and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Diversity Award. This year, Rotary International acknowledged Cam as a Person of Action: Champion of Inclusion, and he was presented with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Medal.
Cam is the Education and Engagement Consultant for the Alberta Human Rights Commission, President of the Alberta Hate Crimes Committee, and the Rotary District 5360 Indigenous Relations Chair.

Arthur was asked to thank the speaker, and he asked a question concerning the poisoning of many in the northern Ontario native communities hosting gold mining in the past. Have they received adequate compensation for the injuries that occurred?
