Paul Dewar: Courage personified
You have probably heard by now of the devastating diagnosis our colleague, Paul Dewar, received on February 8th: terminal brain cancer. In the face of these most tragic of circumstances, Paul is an unwavering optimist. On June 19th he launched his initiative, Youth Action Now, which calls upon the activism of young people in Ottawa and elsewhere to use their energy and idealism to make their community and the world – a better place. Along with 300 supporters, I heard his upbeat and inspiring words of encouragement. Click here to hear them for yourself.
