Early Tuesday flight to Ottawa to meet and speak to the Board of the Ottawa Community Foundation with a “lessons learned” presentation on HCF’s poverty work in Hamilton. Ottawa is fortunate to have one of Canada’s most progressive Community Foundations under the leadership of a remarkable CEO and Order of Canada recipient, Barb McInnes. Looking forward to a lively exchange of ideas. In a “Six Degrees of Separation” coincidence, the O.C.F. Board is Chaired by Scott Wilson who happens to be the brother of my buddy and former Spec columnist Paul Wilson.
