Old news to me

She’s tireless in working for the environment, but my sister Joni is not one to blow her own horn. I just found out about this and asked for pictures.

Twenty six years have passed since Joni received a Governor General’s Award for her community work. She helped to get a park established and opened up trails for public use.

So this is a shoutout to Ray Hnatyshyn for recognizing Joni. He was Canada’s Governor General in 1992. One for for young David Suzuki, too,  who followed up with a postcard.

I asked Joni about Suzuki’s reference to “Walker’s statements” and she replied:

“He was disgusted that US researchers left a Grizzly trap when they left Canada.
A bear was caught and died as a result. There was a conference about it that I filmed.”
